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.

Ladybug Tools online course, October 16-19 (McNeel Europe)


Ladybug Tools online workshop
October 16-19, 2022
Hosted by McNeel Europe (Zoom)

Ladybug Tools is a collection of free computer applications that support environmental design. Ladybug Tools connects 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) interfaces to a selection of validated simulation engines. The 3-day course taught by the cofounders of Dosta Tec, Adrian Krężlik and Mateo Barbero, introduces Ladybug tools and the fundamentals of building energy performance to architects and engineers. The course covers topics such as climate change and its impact on construction, climate-based energy and thermal comfort, and daylight modelling.

Participants will learn about both theory and practice of energy modelling concepts. Parametric models in Grasshopper will be developed to simulate energy intensity, indoor thermal comfort, and daylight autonomy, to integrate standards such as LEED and BREEAM, and lastly, to adjust rural climate models to urban valley conditions.

Day 1

  • Introduction to climate modelling in AEC
  • Introduction to the Ladybug Tools (LBT) UI
  • Climate modelling
  • Energy Modelling in LBT: Rural vs urban weather model
  • IPCC on building challenges; BREEAM and LEED
  • Introduction to Heat Flow

Day 2

  • Example of a simple energy model
  • Energy Intensity and End-use. Carbon Intensity of energy sources
  • Detailed Energy Model: Systems, Program & People
  • Adjusting the Energy Model: Materials & their properties
  • Introduction to Thermal Comfort
  • Thermal Comfort Modelling

Day 3

  • Daylight Physics, Sun Position, Radiation Rose, Local Daylight Conditions
  • Sunlight hours on the façade. Introduction to Daylight Modelling
  • Simple Daylight Autonomy Modelling
  • Adjusting the Daylight Model: Materials & Physics
  • Annual Sunlight Exposure

Course requirements: Basic knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper.

Online course fees: EUR 395,- (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers get a 50% discount (proof of status required). Please note that we will confirm your seat after your payment has cleared.

Max. number of participants: 25. If there is no quorum, the course will be canceled two weeks before.

Course language: English
