I had the pleasure of working with Susan when I took the Level 1 NURBS course that is advertised through the Rhino 3-D website. Although listed as a multi-student class, I was fortunate to take it as an independent study and received one-on-one instruction from Susan over a two day period. Susan’s knowledge of, and patience with, the program offers an ease of entry into the mechanics of using the software, teaching you multiple ways of accessing functions either by key-stroke, mouse-click, or command. She is very helpful in explaining how each function works and allowed me time to be able to access those functions and apply them to a modeled form. As an artist, I felt it was great to have committed hands-on time with the material with the added guidance of an attentive and experienced instructor. Because Susan is also an artist/designer, she took personal interest in my own projects and helped me problem solve some design issues, working with me to make the objects better. She even took it as a personal challenge when one of my models was posing a design problem and worked on it herself to come up with a solution. Ultimately Susan promotes a sense of excitement and engagement with the course material. She has a trained and practiced understanding of the soft-ware’s application within visual art and object making. She is a very hospitable host who sent off with plenty of resources including the a printed copy of the Rhino handbook and an open invitation to contact her for any additional guidance. I highly recommend Susan’s course to anyone interested in learning Rhino 3-D.
