Available spots


This is the class that I wish I had when I first started in the marine canvas industry. We will focus on the industry-specific application of Rhino3D. We will use real-world examples like flooring digitization, 2D canvas patterns, and using 3D data to make canvas patterns. This class is for people with no CAD experience and people using CAD and looking to improve their skills and processes. We will focus primarily on Rhino3D, which is the core of your workflow. We will also look at popular measuring tools, flattening software, and cutting tables to give attendees a holistic view of the process and what steps to take to bring their business to the next level. There will be optional homework assignments each day, and we will go through complete demonstrations of real-world projects to highlight and reinforce critical skills.
