What is the course about?

Using Rhino, a software used for computer-aided design (CAD), you will learn the basics of 3D modelling and how to apply these to designing a ring. This is a tool for designing and making that is relevant to any jeweller, creative practitioner or an individual that wishes to learn more about 3D printing. By the end of the course, you will take home with you a 3D printed ring of your own design printed on site at City Lit.
