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

AA DLAB London - September 1-18, 2022

AA DLAB London
September 1-18, 2022

In its 17th year, DLAB is a three-week programme taking place at the AA London HQ’s unique atmosphere.

DLAB experiments with the integration of advanced computational design, analysis, and large-scale prototyping techniques. The programme continues to build on its expertise on complex architectural design and fabrication processes, relying heavily on materiality and performance. DLAB brings together a range of experts – tutors and lecturers – from internationally acclaimed academic institutions and practices, Architectural Association, Zaha Hadid Architects, amongst others.

The research generated at DLAB has been published in international media – ArchDaily, Archinect, Bustler – and peer-reviewed conference papers, including SimAUD (Simulation in Architecture and Urban Design), eCAADe (Education and research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe).

DLAB investigates on the correlations between form, material, and structure through the rigorous implementation of computational methods for design, analysis, and fabrication, coupled with analog modes of physical experimentation and prototype making. Each cycle of the programme devises custom-made architectural processes through the creation of novel associations between conventional and contemporary design and fabrication techniques. The research culminates in the design and fabrication of a one-to-one scale prototype realized by the use of robotic fabrication techniques, with the aim of integrating of form-finding, material computation, and structural performance.

The programme is structured in two stages:

PART 1 – participants are introduced to core concepts of material processes, computational methods and digital fabrication techniques. Basic and advanced tutorials on computational design and analysis tools are provided. The programme performs as a team-based workshop promoting collaboration, research and ‘learning-by-experimentation’.

PART 2 – participants propose design interventions based on the skills and knowledge gained during phase 1 and supported by scaled study models and prototypes. The fabrication and assembly of a full-scale architectural intervention with the use of robotic fabrication techniques will then unify the design goals of the programme.

Veris supercharges digital construction workflows with Veesus Point Clouds for Rhino

Veris has to deliver the very highest quality 3D models and point cloud data to clients. When a crucial point cloud tool was discontinued, Veris partnered with Veesus to overhaul their reality capture tools and digital construction workflows using Veesus Point Clouds for Rhino. Now, they’re delivering better results than ever before for clients, using the Veesus plug-in to work with point cloud data natively in Rhino.

Fologram augmented vision workshop, September 7-9, Barcelona (McNeel Europe)


Fologram augmented vision workshop: 
September 7-9, 2022
McNeel Europe offices, Barcelona, Spain

The Fologram augmented vision workshop is a 3-day in-person course led by the Fologram team Gwyllim Jahn, Cameron Newnham, and Nick van den Berg. Participants will learn how to create custom mixed reality applications for design and fabrication using Rhino, the Grasshopper and Fologram toolkits, and the HoloLens 2. Furthermore, 1:1 prototypes will be used as demonstrators to gain awareness of the unique advantages of mixed reality for fabrication of complex design models. Thus, participants will come away from the workshop with a better understanding of the new fabrication capabilities and how these might impact the feasibility of certain designs. During the workshop, the HoloLens 2/ research mode and internal builds of the Fologram software will be made available to experiment with features not yet available in public apps. 
The workshop is aimed at educators, researchers, and design practitioners looking at mixed reality application development in Rhino and Grasshopper to integrate new tools, and processes into the existing digital fabrication curricula or workflows. 

Day 1: Event-Based Parametric Modelling
  • Introductory lecture on mixed reality fabrication/ state of the art
  • HoloLens and Setup, calibration and best practices, gestures, menus and Apps, device streaming
  • Fologram installation, connecting and viewing models
  • Fologram for Grasshopper, syncing geometry and parameters, tracking hands, devices and gestures, detecting device state, selectively running parts of Grasshopper definitions using state, getting and setting global variables
  • Example applications
Day 2: Sensor Feedback Guidance
  • Discussion and preparation of individual projects
  • Discussion of sensor data (tracking markers and 3D scans)
  • Feedback with marker tracking, tracking QR codes and aruco markers, smoothing marker data, tracking physical objects with mounted codes, comparing marker positions to target positions
  • Feedback with depth scans, enabling Research Mode, installing Twinbuild Research, preparing models for depth scanning
  • Prototype Design, Introduction to Chromodoris for voxelization and isosurfacing, example design systems and models
  • Design exercise, discussion, review and design selection, rationalization and preparation for fabrication
Day 3: Mixed Reality Fabrication
  • Environment setup, material setup, demonstration of techniques
  • Fabrication, completing the prototype, post-build 3D scan
  • Review and discussion of prototype results as well as implications and applications

Course requirements: Basic Rhino and/or Grasshopper skills are required. HoloLens 2 headsets will be provided.

Course fees: EUR 795,- (+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: 15. If there is no quorum, the course will be canceled 15 days before.

Course language: English

Educational seats are limited. Sign up now by contacting McNeel Europe!
