RhinoFabStudio

Design + Optimization + Fabrication

RhinoFabStudio

Objectives:
Teach, learn and share different methods of fabrication for industrial designers, architects, and engineers where Rhinoceros is involved in any cycle of the manufacturing process.
This RhinoFabStudio community is a great place for sharing information about hardware used to fabricate your ideas, your digital models and your Grasshopper definitions.
RhinoFabStudio is open to everyone and welcomes any Rhinoceros compatible program that helps you accomplish your ideas.
RhinoFabStudio urges all Rhino ARTs and ARTCs to post your events, workshops and classes which pertain to fabrication methods and/or processes.

News about Rhino and Digital Fabrication

Two Grasshopper Workshops by David Rutten, Feb 18-19/ Feb 21-22 at McNeel Europe in Barcelona



Workshop I: February 18-19, 2019
Workshop II: February 21-22, 2019
10am-6pm
McNeel Europe S.L.
Roger de Flor, 32-34 bajos
08018 Barcelona (Spain)


David Rutten will be at our European office in Barcelona to teach two of his latest Grasshopper classes aimed at beginners and intermediate users. David founded Grasshopper in 2008, continually developing it and technically supporting the user community throughout all these years. Today Grasshopper is integrated in Rhino 6 for Windows and Rhino 5 for Mac.

His two-day class focuses on carefully selected exercises to achieve a deeper understanding on how visual programming works using Grasshopper and on optimization methods for your Grasshopper definition. 

Day 1: Foundational Concepts
  • Mathematics (starting from integer addition to evaluating complicated functions, a series of increasingly difficult exercises will introduce the core concepts of any Grasshopper algorithm; setting and inspecting values, learning about different data types, performing operations on data, and formatting data for human consumption)
  • Custom Shapes (most often the shape you need isn’t part of the standard shapes. This second part focused on how to create and bundle your own functionality.)
  • Structures of Shapes (creating complex structures from simple elements is an important skill, as is analyzing these complex structures. Building on the result of part (2), this exercise focuses on the creation and categorization of large amounts of data.)
  • Spaceframe (Sooner or later data management always rears its ugly head. Instead of worrying about the data itself, in this exercise we’ll worry instead about how data is organized.)
  • Analysis and Graphics (Presenting data in a human-centric fashion may sometimes involve the creation of visual feedback such as graphs and maps. This exercise aims to display data graphically which is either too numerous or too complicated to be read as a text.)

Day 2:  Algorithm and Workflow design 
Working on large projects often involves dealing with discontinuity, either because several people are involved or because a single person works on the project intermittently. It is therefore important to keep Grasshopper algorithms easy to understand regardless of whether the user is familiar with them. While good documentation of a file can go some way towards achieving this goal, it should be considered to be the last resort. Ideally, an algorithm is self-explanatory. To accomplish this, algorithms need to be both clean and small, and sadly neither property comes naturally to node-based editors such as Grasshopper. 

The entire day will be spent working on various aspects of a single, overarching project while keeping modularity, maintainability, and flexibility in mind.

Course Fee: EUR 495,- (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers will get a 50% discount (proof of status required). Please note your seat is only confirmed once payment has cleared. 

Max. Number of Participants:
10. If there is no quorum, the course will be canceled 15 days before.

Language: English 

Course Requirements: No knowledge of programming or scripting is required. To attend you only need your own computer and a copy of Rhino 6 on it.

Educational seats are limited. Sign up now by contacting McNeel Europe here!

Parametric Design Seminar in Oslo (Norway) - Feb 12, 2019


Parametric Design Seminar in Oslo (Norway)
Feb 12, 2019

For the second time in Norway, a seminar dedicated to parametric design and visual programming is specially arranged for the construction industry.

Several Norwegian and international speakers will show how they combine the different visual programming tools to solve challenging and time-consuming work in the design process. Such tools allow for completely new opportunities in design optimization of buildings and other constructions by adding rule-based relationship and logic, rather than doing it manually.

Now when you use standard software based on visual programming, and connect it to Building Information Models (BIM), it is also made available to everyone.

Lectures are by architects, engineers and industrial designers who use many different types of software to achieve their goals. The seminar aims to display a wide range of applications and possibilities with parametric design, regardless of the software providers. But there will be the opportunity to meet representatives from Robert McNeel & Associates, the creator of Rhino and Grasshopper.
