We will model a simple solid 3d RSS icon using Rhinoceros. It’s fast and easy ;)


modeling rss icon

First draw a 5x5 square in top view. Use Snap feature for easy use.

Then fillet the corners using Fillet command with a radius of 1

Extrude the rounded square 1 unit in another view.

Use *FilletEdge *to fillet edges of this polysurface.

You can change fillet radius by clicking on CurrentRadius and then enter an appropriate radius. I used 0.2

Use tangent lines to trim large circles.

Complete the trim as seen above and then use  **Join **command to join closed curves.;

This way you will have closed polysurfaces instead of surfaces.

Without deselecting the curves use  **Extrude **command to extrude those curves one unit.

Use  **FilletEdge **again with a radius of 0.1 this time to fillet edges of those solids.
