Understanding Rhino's modeling aids

In this video, we'll explain how important modeling aids are by showing two examples. The first model uses clean and simple curves, thanks to the use of various modeling aids, so that their accuracy is guaranteed. The second model was built without the modeling aids. We'll see just a few of the kinds of problems that can crop up early and only get worse. So, our goal here is to create clean curves and close curves. Let's take a look at these two examples. I'm just going to select them both, and then hit F10. It's a shortcut, but we're just turning on the control points.

So, in our good example, you'll note that the control points are nicely spaced and are a bare minimum of those needed to define the form. Let's take a look at the bad example. It pretty much looks the same overall, but up close, there's some serious problems. Now I want to get even tighter here, so I'm going to do a little trick. I'm going to highlight these three control point...
