The Rhino 5.0 training on lynda.com is comprised of around 60 separate videos organised into 12 chapters, with a total running time of around 6 hours. The pace of training is good, and the clarity and the flexibility to learn at your own pace; as well as being able to re-visit completed lessons make the training a must have resource, especially if you are new to Rhino 5.0.
Rhino 5.0 is one of the most organised 3D software programs on the market, but if you’re nervous about learning CAD, here are some tips that might help shorten your learning curve and reduce your fears. Firstly, it really helps a lot if you can visualise in 3D, and being able to sketch is a bonus as well. Secondly, if you have ever used programs like Adobe Illustrator or PhotoShop, then you’re already familiar with the same type of tools that Rhino 5.0 uses. Thirdly, any experience with 3D design software is an advantage but it’s not required. So if you’ve used a 3D design program before, even something like Sketch Up, then the process of learning Rhino 5.0 will be much easier for you.

Back in 1994, when Lynda Weinman couldn’t find a book to recommend to her students, she decided that she’d write the first book on web design. The book went on to become the de facto textbook for web design of that generation, and it was adopted by many colleges. The book sold 100’s of thousands of copies, was translated into lots of languages, and really put lynda.com on the map.
