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

New book: Advanced Numerical Simulation Methods

Advanced Numerical Simulation Methods: From CAD Data Directly to Simulation Results
Author: Gernot Beer

This book is about changing the paradigm of numerical simulation. Until now simulation required the generation of a mesh and this has meant a major effort and also a source of errors. In many cases an accurate description of the problem geometry is available as Computer Aided Design (CAD) data. 

This book will show how the generation of meshes can be avoided completely by using CAD technology. This includes using CAD data for the description of the geometry of the problem directly without approximation by a mesh and applying the functions that CAD programs use (non-uniform rational B-Splines or NURBS) to the description of the unknown. 

The book starts with an easy to follow introduction to NURBS and the standard data exchange format used by CAD programs. This is followed by an application to finite element shell analysis. For the modelling of solids the boundary element (BEM) is used since this is the only way mesh generation can be avoided. A computer program written in Octave/MATLAB, that has full 3-D capabilities, is introduced and used to demonstrate various steps in the analysis. Applications are in solid mechanics. Both linear and non-linear analyses are discussed and many practical examples are given. 

The book is designed to provide a starting point for scientists that want to work in this exciting new area of research and for practitioners to learn how the "pain" of numerical simulation can be eased.

DIVA Day 2015 London - registration now open

DIVA Day 2015_London, England
Co-hosted by the Architectural Association
Conference October 23
Training Courses October 22 + 24

DIVA Day is a full-day event of presentations and panel discussions for practitioners, students and educators about building performance and design using DIVA and associated building simulation tools. This year, in addition to going international, we are excited to be pairing up with the Architectural Association in London to bring you exciting new work in the field of building performance and design.



Resources for teaching Rhino to middle school students? 1 Reply

Hi everyone,I run a middle school fab lab, and am wrapping up our first year in operation. I've been using things like Tinkercad and 123D Design for 3D design for printing, and Inkscape for 2D design for laser / vinyl cutting. I've been a bit…Continue
