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.

News about Rhino and Digital Fabrication

The Generation Game - Emerging tools in AEC

From the article: Digital rendering of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, designed by Frank Gehry

AEC Magazine provides a little AEC history and thought in this article: How design and documentation are changing. How 3D and digital fabrication play into our current software. How we are entering a disruptive phase. Where the AEC industry is headed.

Creative Robotics Workshop in Mexico

Join Karl Singline, Luis Pacheco and Andres Gonzalez at Creative Robotics Workshop in León, Mexico.  

Creative Robotics workshops aim to investigate the state-of-the-art application of robotics at various scales. Students will be introduced to emergent technologies and methodologies such as parametric design and control of a KUKA industrial robotic arm using tools such as Rhino, Grasshopper and KUKA|prc.

Andres Gonzalez, RhinoFabStudio's worldwide director, will be doing a presentation on Rhino and a sneak peek on Rhino 7 WIP on Monday, January 13, 2020, at 11:00 am, followed by robotics and parametric design presentations that will take place in this intensive five-day workshop.

Date: January 13 - 17, 2020
Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm 
Place: Parque Tecnológico CIEN
Av. Eugenio Garza Sada, León, México
Cost:  Mex$ 8,500 -Early bird price until November 30th, 2019
          Mex$ 12,000  -After November 30th, 2019

What is RhinoFabStudio? RhinoFabStudio (fabrication studio) is a small-scale digital workshop, certified by McNeel, with an array of Rhino and Rhino compatible software and computer-controlled tools and training. These tools cover the various leading-edge industrial methods and materials needed to design, analyze, and fabricate almost anything.

Programmed Deformation V2.0 Workshop in Bucharest 29 February to 04 March, 2020

A complex articulated equilibrium in the form of tridimensional curvature patterns is delineated through the interaction between two divergent material behaviors. On one hand, the stored elastic energy of stretched textiles, on the other hand, the stiffness of a thermoplastic polymer distributed heterogeneously through 3d printed algorithmically generated patterns. The two material components form a hybrid system with a smooth aesthetic appearance, inherent material efficiency, and structural stability.

The underlying concept behind tension-active structures is to store energy in the textile material prior to 3D printing and then release that energy to affect the form and function of the hybrid system. A flat pre-tensioned fabric sheet is being 3d printed onto. Upon release, a tridimensional highly dynamic shape emerges.

Through the use of digital material behavior simulations as well as large scale prototyping the workshop will bridge the gap between digital and physical and will provide participants with insights into the behavior of tension-active structures.

The workshop will be introducing the principles behind tension-active structures in a fabrication-oriented fashion. The participants will learn how to digitally simulate the behavior in the GrasshopperKangaroo Plugin. The participants will then fabricate their designs on a large Delta Wasp 3MT 3D printer with a maximum build volume of 1m x 1m x 1m and receive real-world feedback for their designs.

What you will learn:

  • Tension-active structures behavior simulation
  • Real-world fabric and tension simulations
  • 3d printing with a large format Delta Wasp
  • Large scale 3d Printing on Stretched Textiles
  • Robotic 3d printing designing with Grasshopper 3d
  • Physics simulations with Grasshopper 3d
