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.

TED: How to build a pop-up theater

For the 2014 TED Talks in Vancouver, BC, Canada, TED wanted a pop-up -- a temporary theater set erected inside a ballroom at the Vancouver Convention Center. A reusable 1,200 venue,  assembled in about a week.

The Rockwell Group took a little over a year to design the structure.

Rockwell Group. Michael Fischer and JT Bachman worked on the TED Theater. "While my role was more as project manager," Fischer says, "JT was the one who built and developed the Rhino model. Some of it was from my direction, given my theater experience, but in other ways it was from JT's initiative. We'd meet to review the model, and I'd go, 'Wow, where did that come from? That's really cool. Let's run with that."

Live Online Webinar: Introducing ARCHICAD – Rhino – Grasshopper Connection

October 6, 2015

A live online webinar on introducing GRAPHISOFT’s ARCHICAD – Rhino – Grasshopper Connection. This industry-first, bidirectional “real-time” connection lets architects and designers use their favorite algorithmic design tool (Grasshopper) combined with professional BIM software (ARCHICAD) through a best-in-class iterative design workflow.   

The Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection offers a unique design workflow, helping to explore many design variations, and create and fine-tune building details and structures using algorithms without exchanging files. It complements GRAPHISOFT’s native file format support for Rhino that enables designers to open and save Rhino project files of any size or complexity with ARCHICAD. By extending the existing natural link between Rhino and Grasshopper, the new tool empowers architects to start and modify their designs in any of the three design environments -- Rhino, Grasshopper or ARCHICAD.

Visit this site for further information, to register for the public beta and to gain access to the beta forum, PDF guides, video tutorials, and more!

Join us on October 6th to learn more about a unique design workflow that enables you to use the best-in-class design tools in the field of algorithmic design, free-form modeling and BIM. The webinar will present how these tools assist the design process using two new design workflows:

Rhino – ARCHICAD workflow. Designers can exchange models between Rhino and ARCHICAD
Grasshopper – ARCHICAD workflow. Architects can create algorithmic design in BIM environment
