RhinoFabStudio

Design + Optimization + Fabrication

RhinoFabStudio

Objectives:
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

Grasshopper tutorial: Weave Pattern


In this 10-minute Grasshopper tutorial, Parametric House shows you how to use Mesh+ and Weaverbird to model a weaving pattern on a NURBS surface.

First, you model a Surface in Rhino using Sweep1 and then use Mesh+ to model the pattern. Finally, the tutorial shows how to use Weaverbird to smooth the results and make the weaving pattern.

This is just one of a series of courses by Parametric House that you can enroll in.

Rob|Arch 2020 at Beijing: Call for Workshops

September 2020
Beijing, China

In September 2020, the Rob|Arch 2020 Conference on Robotic Fabrication in Architecture, Art, and Design takes place in Beijing, China, and you are invited to present a workshop.

Rob|Arch 2020 is cohosted by Tsinghua University, in cooperation with the Beijing Design Week.

Rob|Arch is looking for high-end, hands-on workshops that appeal to both experienced robot users as well as interested beginners from a variety of backgrounds. The workshop should lead the participants along the entire fabrication workflow, from design to production.
 
Workshops can involve any kind of robots, from robotic arms to drones, autonomous vehicles, and completely new machines.

The three-day workshops are selected by a committee of the local hosts and the Association for Robots in Architecture.

Submission deadline: September 15, 2019

MAGIX-LOCK, the magic closure system


The MAGIX-LOCK closure system is a patented innovation taking advantage of the power of magnets. Instead of the normal attraction of magnets, the magnets are reversed and repel each other forcing the object to lock in place. Once the female and the male parts of the closure system are joined and locked, they can be released by applying force on the male part to unlock the system.

The preliminary design concept served as the first step in the production process of the prototypes. The analog sketches were transferred to the digital space and constructed precisely in 3D by using Rhinoceros. The first generation of prototypes in different variations was 3D printed based on the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) and manually assembled with efficient Neodymium magnets. Based on the result of the first generation prototypes, the 3D models were further optimized in material thickness and fabrication tolerances in Rhinoceros. 


The second generation of the improved prototypes was cast using the Lost-wax technique, which better reflected the precise feel of the final materials and appearance. 

The current third generation of the prototypes has been completely re-engineered, improved in functionality, and constructed to be produced entirely with CNC milling, which is focusing on mass production. Rhinoceros has been an integral part of the design and construction process which served as a direct output for the final fabrication process (sketch-construction-production).

This simplicity of the MAGIX-LOCK functional design opens up a whole new line of closure systems, ranging from watches, jewelry, bags, helmets, and many more.
