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.

We would like to invite you to join us for a Kangaroo Physics Workshop, led by the award winning plug-in developer Daniel Piker himself. The workshop will take place on May 17-19 at our European office in Barcelona.

Daniel will introduce Kangaroo Physics, an interactive physics/constraint solver for designers and one of the most successful Grasshopper plug-ins. The program works as a physics engine performing interactive simulation, form-finding, optimization, and constraint solving in real time.

Course layout:
Day 1

• Introduction - principles of form-finding and dynamic relaxation
• Catenary arches and vaults
• Linkages
• Tensile membranes
• Bending rods and gridshells

Day 2

• Collisions/packing/distribution
• Rigid bodies and mechanisms
• Bending shells and origami
• Meshing for simulation

Day 3

• Panels and grids for architecture
• Introduction to using the Kangaroo library via C# scripting
• Individual project development

Course Fee: EUR 795 (+VAT); students and university teachers will get a 50% discount (proof of status required)
Max. Number of Participants: 8-10
Language: English

Seats are limited. Sign up now by contacting Rodrigo Bárcena!
