Im still new to Rhino/3dmodeling.... Been doing it for about 4 months.

Show off some of your NURBS projects

Here are some of the stuff Ive done in Rhino:

Well I had been using AutoCAD for about 6 years before I started rhino and the 2 programs have a very similar layout which made it very easy for me to get started with rhino.

Most of the renderings are of objects I had laying around the house. I just used various measuring tools to get what I needed to create the models. Things like the swimming pool and raceing turtle were pure imigination.

I would suggest starting out with tutorials on the website

heres something im working on...all nurbs.

05 May 2004, 08:50 PM
okay a lil' update...

Thats cool, whats software are you using?

05 May 2004, 11:04 PM
heehee, look in the sig man!
Maya 6.0 and Mental Ray... heres another update, nicer composition, and better color scheme I think! :D

added a fresnel effect to the materials, making them more realistic, and I also included the HDRI background instead of comping it out. :D

Hi, all

I'm new user here. And I can't make attachments.
Please tell me, I can do this?

sorry for my English

Check the FAQ at the top - think you need to make 30 posts first :)

Lightwave only has meta nurbs... it's wip...some things not attached or modeled yet

07 July 2004, 08:19 PM
MetaNURBS, HyperNURBS are not NURBS per se. They are just marketing terms. They are all Sub Division Surface.

07 July 2004, 08:05 PM
Did not know the attachment size had been increased until now. There are some of my NURBS models.

good job, I already know its the apu from the matrix revolutions

I like that a lot its kool, I dont know a lot about nurbs, but from seeing that pic, I am going to try it. one question how many polys would that be?

Something I made yesterday, Rhinoceros 3d, exported using IGES to 3dsmax :)

I like that a lot its kool, I dont know a lot about nurbs, but from seeing that pic, I am going to try it. one question how many polys would that be?About 56k polys so far.

Here's my contribution. Modeled in Rhino3D over the course of a month or so (wasn't working on it full-time). I'm now in the process of remodeling this using polygons (I haven't settled on a polygon modeling tool but it looks like it's going to be XSI|Foundation) because I'd like to be able to animate this when completed. Currently, I can only get the polygon count down to around 65,000 before artifacts become visiable (this is just the head- think about when the thing is completed). I'll be using the same construction curves, though (exported as an IGES file).

I like modeling using Rhino because I come from a traditional CAD background. Although I've moved on to do something else (systems programming), 3D modeling is still my primary hobby. Enjoy and crits/comments are all welcome.

here is mine.
orginally it was a clay model which was made by me and a friend.
after the clay model was finnished we scanned a bunch of pices and then combined and patched it in rapid formz.
the result was not that good so i had to do a lot of refinements in maya.

here are some wires =)

hi guys this is my first nurbs character model.i cudnt complete it bcos my computer configuration is too low .i dont have the financial support to buy a nice one.currently i did this work in celeron processor with 20gb hd.(u all cud guess how misserable cud it b)here is the work
