Understanding the three types of entities: curves, surfaces, and solids

In this video, we'll take a 3D tour of the fundamental entities that comprise the Rhino universe. There are technically four Entities, but the Point Entity doesn't really count, since it's used mostly as a reference, or a marker, and not at all for modeling. That leaves us with three, the Curve, the Surface and the Solid. It's easy to keep these clear if you just look at the menu and see them organized one after the other, Curve menu, Surface and Solid. Let's start the tour. I'm going to zoom in. Here's our basic Point Entity.

You can find that on the main toolbar right here, first position. Here's a couple of different kind of Curves. Even though some are straight and some are free form, these all are technically defined as Curves. We have open variety and closed. One fundamental aspect of Curves is you can turn the Control Points on, so I'll just light those up. I'm using the F10 shortcut. It's important to know. We'll discuss later. Next up is...
