Technical Specifications and Instructions
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS FOR ONLINE COURSES
To watch the videos you need:
- web browser Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, or Internet Explorer, updated to the most recent version or at least the previous one
- broadband Internet connection (ADSL or Fiber optics)
Most smartphone and tablet browsers are compatible too, but it is recommended to test before purchasing. Always use them connected via Wi-Fi to a broadband connection, using the 3G or 4G may not work or will consume your data plan very fast.
To know for sure if a device or browser is compatible, check the course's free lesson. If you can watch it without problems you should have no issues with the other lessons since they are all based on the same platform.
To do the exercises you need a computer with Rhinoceros version 4.0 or 5.0. If you don't have a license yet you can use the evaluation version that is downloadable from the McNeel site:
To be able to properly use Rhinoceros it is recommended a computer with at least the following configuration:
- Intel i5 CPU or equivalent
- 1Gb graphic card
- 15" screen
- 3-button mouse (with scroll wheel)
To log in to the site click on the "Login" link in the upper right corner and type username and password of your account (provided during the purchase process if you don't have one). Once logged in, you'll see a box in the right sidebar with the "My Courses" link. Click on the link to access your personal courses page, where you'll find all courses you purchased. Click on the course name to access the lessons. Click on the lesson name to open a new browser tab or window where you can watch the video and download the lesson files.
If the video halts frequently or reproduction is unstable, it could be that your connection is slow or temporarily overloaded. In this case please try again later or in other times of the day.
If you have already downloaded the lesson files and don't need to read the notes anymore, you can have a better experience watching the video in full screen mode. Click on the four-arrows button that you find on the right-lowermost corner (next to the "HD" letters) to activate the full screen. You can return to normal mode anytime by clicking the button again or pressing ESC.
