STARTER GUIDE: Autodesk T-Splines Plug-in for Rhino

Step 3, getting up to speed with workflows

In Step 2, you learned about the easiest way to make a T-Spline model — from primitives. In Step 3, we'll introduce you to many other ways you can create organic shapes with T-Splines.

1. Watch this short introduction on creating T-Splines models

Video

This "video" is actually a playlist of five short videos, each between 1 and 3 minutes, showing different ways to create a T-Splines model: from curves, from NURBS surfaces, from a subdivision surface, by piping curves, and (a review from Step 2) from primitives.

The five-video sequence includes:

  • From curves
  • Converting mesh to T-Splines
  • From NURBS
  • From tsPipe
  • From primitives

2. Work through these six instructional tutorials

Next, work through these point-and-click instructional tutorials. You already completed the first tutorial, the remote control, in Step 2. These tutorials build on each other, each one introducing a couple of new commands, to give you a strong T-Splines foundation. Download the .3dm file to make your own model while watching the movie.
