1. Have an in-depth understanding of data structure
2. Work between different geometry types such as NURBS, Mesh, and SubDs
3. Understand use cases of mesh geometry
4. Optimize workflow using blocks and caches
5. Work with layers, material, and views in your Rhino document

Day 1
  • Review Computational Geometry and Complex Geometry
  • Advanced Data Structure (Branch and Path Manipulation)
  • Data Grouping, Partition, Classification and Culling
  • Data Sorting, Sets
  • Conditional Statements
  • Custom Patterns and Domain
Day 2

"Hello! I'm highly interested in enrolling in this course as it seems incredible. However, since I am currently residing in Colombia, I was wondering if the course sessions will be recorded for later viewing. Due to the time difference between Europe and Colombia, 10 am in Europe coincides with very early morning hours here, which might result in missing the first hour of the workshop. Thank you for your understanding."
