Design + Optimization + Fabrication


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.

Download the New Orca3D 1.4 WIP

A new Orca3D Work-in-Progress (WIP) is now available. This new version (1.4 WIP 2014-04-15) will expire on August 5th, 2014.

Please note that this release no longer supports Rhino 4. 
This and future Orca3D WIP releases require Rhino 5.

This release includes:
  • A new hull assistant for creating developable surface models. This assistant takes a new approach to the developable surface problem and is based on a composition of conic and cylindrical surface patches that guarantees to form a mathematically developable surface model. See the Orca3D Help File for a detailed discussion of the new developable surface functionality.
  • Fixed a bug in the Orca tree view which caused a crash in Rhino 5.
  • Fixed some error condition message handling in Orca3D hydrostatics.
  • Addressed a units and persistence issue related to overriding the initial plane height for free float hydrostatics in the Orca3D design condition.
