Hi Hansjoerg,

thanks for uploading your vids!
Still regularly play with Rhino, but never get around the rapid tooling

Great subject you chose for the vids, the A1 !

Hey Dave ... just try it ... it is not that much effort it seems to be!!!

Insomaniac ... try Rhino3d.com they offer a 25 save trial version ...
Search for Rhino workshop in Micro builders forum you will find the workshop I organized some years before... and third is that you could download the prepared lections as documentation from my homepage........ everything is ( low level ) English ... ...

so you may help yourself in the first ....


David ... It will definitely take some more time until the CD is finished!!!
but its noted down...

David ... THis is nothing to be tried....

... and it would be too late to test the idea as I finished this part last eve ( no video about this because it would rather look the same as the last!!!)
