Modeling a scroll with Rhino

In this Rhinoceros video tutorial you'll learn to model a simple scroll form like those you might see in fine woodwork or on jewelry. The v5 beta of Rhino is used in this video and can be downloaded from using your v4 license.

Great to see this. I've had students model violins, etc., and the scroll portions are always exceedingly challenging. This issue with the tangency and trim problems is very good to know about. Thanks for posting!

Hi George,

I'm glad it was a useful tip. Let me know if you have any other areas that cause common questions in student models.

Great tutorial! After following it twice, I'm still stuck on the 'show edges' part - my interior edges aren't sealed. Do you have any troubleshooting tips? Thanks a million!

Apologies for the super delayed response Bob. I would check to make sure the curves used to construct the surfaces touched. If you are still having similar issues, please email the 3dm file to and we'll take a look.
