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

DR_SoM Design Research Series on Method

DR_SoM Digital Practice TU Graz Oct-24-27-2019
Design Research Series on Method
October 24 – 26 2019
Graz University of Technology, Austria

The seventh session of DR_SoM (Design Research Series on Method) will take place at Graz University of Technology. This event is also the 5th Annual Conference of the Architectural Research in Europe Network Association (ARENA). For the third time DR_SoM focuses on architectural research in practice, but for the first time with an emphasis on the digital. In particular, we want to hear about projects and practices that see digital technology as a new way to think and conceive of design. For more information on the theme, please read the go to the online announcement.

If you would like to participate in the session, please send a concise description of the work you want to present of no more than 200 words (and any additional graphics material, if required) to hirschberg@tugraz.at until 24 June 2019 for consideration by the panel.

Note that full papers are not required as we recognize work in progress. However, participants are invited to write an illustrated paper afterwards, for publication in a booklet dedicated to this DR_SoM session.

Form-finding through minimisation

The master MPDA in Parametric Design in Architecture is happy to announce that Daniel Piker will lecture and participate in the jury of Studio2 next Thursday, June the 20th, at 14.00h in ETSAV's Assembly Hall in Sant Cugat del Valles, Barcelona.

The course is focused on construction-aware design and concludes with the fabrication of 1:1 models based on novel and experimental building systems. This year students are designing and fabricating hybrid bending-active spherical GFRP elastic gridshells, with a high emphasis in the fabrication feasibility, and extensively relying on both physical and digital models made with Kangaroo and analyzed with K2e. The course has counted through several seminars and masterclasses with the participation of international field experts including Christoph Gengnagel, Riccardo La Magna and Cecilie Brandt.

Daniel Piker
Form-finding through minimisation

Daniel is involved in the design and realization of complex forms in architecture, through both research and practice. Formerly working at Arup's Advanced Geometry Unit, and currently, in the Specialist Modelling Group at Foster+Partners, he is also the developer of the form-finding tool 'Kangaroo' which enables a wide range of interactive physical simulation and optimization within the Rhino3d CAD software.
