thanks for answering i'd like to join in with the others talking
about CAD / CAM Vs FABRICATION but i'm just taking my first Rhino
class this week (Lol) thanks again i'm saving this e-mail. I think
colored Gold is hot !!!!!!
I'm using Rhino at the moment, the place where I study was looking
at Jewel CAD, but they weren't interested in educational discounts,
so it sort of tilted the CAD direction to Rhino.
What I find about Rhino is that the interface isn't as nice as other
packages, however if this is all you ever use then you'll have no
conflicting comparison and it fine.
What Rhino does that's really nice is that it's.stl output is A1,
meaning you draw it and can CAM it right off the bat. With the
graphics packages I use, although making models is a dream, there is
no native .stl output, so you have to clean up the models for CAM.
A down side to Rhino (it isn't a down side as far as manufacture
goes), is that it's render isn't that nice.
