Rhino is an important digital modeling tool that allows users (especially architecture students) to create their own project. Rhino newbies and experts are welcome to join this 3-hour workshop, where attendees will create and print drawings of their own digitally modeled pavilion. Attendees will receive a quick introduction to the basic commands of Rhino, and then create artistic drawings from the computer model that they produce.
