So, a few words about these programs. A lot of people have asked me which of these programs is better? what program is best explored? Does it make sense to study the Rhino if then still have to learn Alias? etc.
Now I can say for sure that in the arsenal of any industrial designer should be both programs (and many more:)).
The main advantages and disadvantages which, in my view are important.
• simplicity (in order to start using Rhino, you can simply look at the animated help and has already become clear how it all works) • a very large and convenient tools for NURBS modeling (such a great tool except Rhino I have not seen anywhere else, a lot of handy features) • speed (this applies to modeling, all instruments are made so that we can achieve the desired result for a couple of clicks) • low cost (995$) :) (less Alias) • Snaps (in the world is ):)no better snaps than Rhino • Ability to install additional plug-ins
• with so many tools, not enough control on the basic - such as the Rail Sweep, which prevents to achieve the desired result quickly. • No opportunity to build a surface of class A, which is why we have to study and other programs;)
• Modeling of surfaces of class A • A large number of tools • Control (almost all surfaces created by any of the tools Alias have a large number of functions for extra control, and this is achieved by the high quality of the surface)
• Not being used to very uncomfortable (but when you get used to - everything is very competently done! :)) • Few Snap (after Rhino want more :)) • Expensive! ($ 20000) :) • No opportunity (as far as I know) to install additional plug-ins
In this tutorial: The impossibility to control the tool Rhino Rail Sweep - continuity on all four sides, but the ability to control in Alias. Also shown technic create surfaces of class A in Alias.
