Rhino 3D & 3D printing

Took an amazing workshop learning to build 3D models in Rhino 3D, we even had a chance to run our creations through a 3D printer. I attempted to model one of the ships I carved as the symmetry allowed for a bit of cheating. It took 2 days to get comfortable enough with the software to navigate without accidentally using Adobe shortcut keys.

Some of the amazing possibilities…. I am dying to have a go at Pepakura¬†which takes your 3D model and flattens it into a paper model complete with taps and numbered sides! The spirals in the below image are the same model using different construction techniques.
