Zebra | Surface Continuity in Rhino – Recorded Webinar

EVENT TITLE: Zebra Surface Continuity in Rhino
EVENT TYPE: recorded webinar
LEVEL: basic
GOAL: understanding and managing surface continuity
SOFTWARE: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper
PREREQUISITES: basic experience of 3D modeling 
LENGTH: 130 minutes approximately 
TUTOR: Arturo Tedeschi 


One of the characteristics of contemporary design is a clear reduction of all visible connections, pursuing the idea of a seamless flow of curves and surfaces. From product design to automotive, from naval design to architecture’s envelope, understanding and managing surface continuity is an essential skill. The online webinar “Zebra” introduces attendees to the notion of surface continuity in Rhino (with a complementary use of Grasshopper). The lesson covers mathematical aspect of curvature continuity, modeling strategies and practical examples. Contents are intended for users with basic knowledge of 3D modeling in Rhino. Registrants will be able to re-watch the webinar anytime. Tutor: Arturo Tedeschi. Language: English.
