Lab tips, tricks, projects

Table Lamp Project for Laser Engraver. This tutorial will also work as a scroll-saw or CNC milling project. Instructions are in Notes.

Wheel model from jpgs. The two jpg files are included as well as instructions in Notes. Use PictureFrame command rather than Background Bitmap command.

Two Rhino Templates for High School design/drafting classes v4. A one page Word document about making Page Layouts for a high school architecture class.

  • A template for an architectural model including a 11×8.5 page layout.
  • A template for a mechanical part including a 11×8.5 page layout. (File and notes contain some instructions for using this template.)

Open the models and Save As Template. Name them as you wish. When you change the template remember to Save As Template so your changes become part of the template.

Page Layout tutorial v4. This tutorial contains a word document and a Rhino model – a work in progress. Edit as needed to meet your needs.

Large Projects with Repeated Parts. Create blocks of the parts. Insert them when needed. And, as a rule, Save Small. Ferndale HS student created a 309 MB model. After Save Small it was 201 MB. After creating 'blocks' of the repeated parts, the file size went to 45 MB. As a rule, encourage your students to Save Small to reduce file sizes on your server.
