Student Feedback

The cad course was excellent thank you.

 

Jack was very good and it was a great insight into the learnings of Rhino and what it entails. I really enjoyed it too which was great, so thank you for organising the course.

1-Day Introduction to CAD Rhino

for Jewellery Design

The course with Jack went very well. 

I think Jack was an excellent tutor, his experience meant that he made interesting suggestions and that he was able to figure out some technical details that I had not drawn in detail.

I have an idea now of all the information that I will need to include in my future designs when outsourcing CAD.

I would rate this course 5* Excellent
