Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling metal parts, part of Rhino for Mac Essential Training.
- [Instructor] So, we've spent some time…planning for the dimensions and the material needs…for the wooden parts of our musical instrument.…Now we can take some time to focus on the metal parts.…So I'm just continuing with the file…that I made in the last video,…the estimating-materials.3dm Rhino file.…And we'll keep building this out adding the metal parts.…Now, we don't need to be quite as careful in our planning…for the metal pieces of our musical instrument,…since what we'll have the fabricator do…is essentially start with some metal rods and metal tape…and just cut those down into predetermined lengths…that we feed to them through the plans here.…
So, not quite as much customization,…and it should be pretty easy to figure out…exactly how much of those materials we need.…So we can just go ahead and start modeling those right now.…And we basically have two sets of metal parts…that we're going to work with here.…We have the tines, or the keys,…so those are the parts of the instrument…that we will sort of play with our fingers.…
