Vertical Variables V2.0 Workshop by DesignMorphine
24 February – 01 March 2018
VERTICAL VARIABLES 2.0 is a workshop supported by the Union of the Architects in Bulgaria that will focus on the applications of various computational strategies in the design of high rise buildings. As a new architectural paradigm emerges with the development of the new technologies, parametric tools are becoming more essential and particularly applicable for the modern skyscraper design. In this regard, the participants will be introduced to computational design techniques which will lead to form finding and optimization through various parameters.
The workshop will begin with introduction to Rhino 3D and Grasshopper, which are going to be the main tools to carry out studies of the final design. Participants will be guided through the writing of parametric definitions in Grasshopper and the applications of various plug-ins, mainly Kangaroo, WeaverBird, Lunchbox, FabTools, MeshTools, Ladybug, and Keyshot.
Do you want to share your Rhino design and get feedback from others?
PureWeb Cast recently released a beta plugin to the public to help you.
The plugin captures the view of your Rhino model and broadcasts it into a browser. Broadcast and share your CAD designs directly from Rhino. No more screenshots or PowerPoints to share your CAD designs.
You can communicate via built-in audio conferencing. And you can make changes to the model that will be viewed in the browser immediately.
During the beta period, PureWeb Cast for Rhino is free. You are welcome and encouraged to submit feedback on your thoughts and experience.
Grasshopper UK User Group Meeting
Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Time: 18:30 - 20:30
Heatherwick Studio: 356-364 Gray's Inn Road, London, WC1X 8BH (Map)
Simply Rhino UK is hosting another Grasshopper UK User Group Meeting in London. This edition will be hosted at Heatherwick Studio.
Heatherwick Studio will present two projects covering the topic of designing, making and collaborating through computational tools. Heatherwick’s Geometry and Computational Design team will go through the computational processes behind design and making in the studio. They will concentrate on two projects, Vessel in New York with a focus on driving the geometry and Al Fayah Park in Abu Dhabi with a focus on form finding and working with collaborative tools.
Another presentation will be offered by AKT II, who have extensive experience in collaborative computational design. They have developed a suite of tools which allow them to react to client changes more efficiently and have a complete control of database tracking, allowing optimisation of structural performance and cost.
AKT II's presentation will explore a series of examples where this new approach experimented with, tested, and improved the Al Fayah Park in collaboration with Heatherwick studio and the 2016 serpentine Pavillion with BIG, and more.
The Grasshopper UK User Group Meeting is free to attend but you must register for your place as space is limited.
LastElf is a 3D digital last design software based on Rhinoceros. Not only for mass production, it can also be used for small quantities and a variety of designs.
Register for a 3D Jewelry introductory workshop focusing on the development, control and feasibility of complex geometries for jewelry in Brazil!
Attendees will learn how to generate infinite variations of their ideas in 3D using Grasshopper for Rhino and how to bring them to the real world in a resin model.
This course is intended for jewelry designers and anyone interested in parametric modeling tools.
Date: November 27 - December 1, 2017
Time: 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil
Fee: 800 Brazilian reais
What is a RhinoFabStudio? A RhinoFabStudio™ (fabrication studio) is a small-scale digital workshop, certified by McNeel, with an array of Rhino and Rhino compatible software and computer controlled tools and training. These tools cover the various leading-edge industrial methods and materials needed to design, analyze, and fabricate almost anything.
