Rhinoceros (Rhino) is a 3D modelling software specialized for free-form NURBS (non uniform rational B-spline). NURBS is a mathematical model that renders curves and surfaces in computers graphics. This mathematical model offers great flexibility and precision in 3D modelling. Rhinoceros is commonly used for industrial design, architecture, marine design, jewelry design, automotive design, CAD / CAM, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, product design as well as the multimedia and graphic design industries.

A basic understanding of Rhinoceros is required in order to get the most out of this tutorial. Rhinoceros provides lots of great videos and tutorials on its website for getting started with Rhino.
