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

Neckar Footridge proposal in Heidelberg by SPANS Sterling Presser

A new architectural landmark in the Heidelberg landscape and history

The new cyclist and pedestrian bridge offers more than a supporting structure. It becomes a new vitalising infrastructure within Heidelberg, which creates a new sense of space and brings the coexisting areas into a new context. The 600m long infrastructure experiences a succession of urban situations: parks, side streets, short narrow passages and wide riverside promenades. The bridge acts as an "urban connector and unifier", creating an efficient and smooth connection between places to revitalise. The central location of the Gneisenaupark centralizes the movement, which extends in the direction of the Neckar and Südpark. Surrounded by the double-ramp, it creates a place that becomes a programmatic architecture "under the bridge". The "Neckar Arm" leads to a raised platform as a point of contemplation in the middle of the river.

The bridge is constructed as a monocoque, which flows. Its seamless and multifaceted form contributes to the abstraction of the entire design. The main geometry refers to Gothic elements from the Holy Spirit Church created multiple layers that peel. The ramps form branches created from the main trunk. The bridge becomes a sculpture that reflects its surroundings and is reflected in the water above the Neckar. It opens a new poetic dimension. The bright rose color reminds of the main lights and shadows of the city. The rhythm of the bows swings with the old bridge. Each "infrastructure instrument" plays its own music and stretches its own path.

Rhino and Grasshopper were extensively used in the modeling and projection.
