In the past, marine design with CFD was expensive, required the expertise of a specialist, and wasn’t practical on ordinary engineering computers. Now Orca3D Marine CFD has changed all of that, coupling the power and ease-of-use of Rhino, Orca3D, and Simerics MP with specially designed templates to allow naval architects to easily and affordably analyze the hydrodynamic performance of displacement and planing hull designs with confidence in the results. Both monohulls and multihulls can be explored, and the effects of local design features including steps, spray rails, lifting strakes, flaps, trim tabs, foils, and other appendages can be investigated with high fidelity. With Orca3D Marine CFD, it takes just minutes to set up and start an analysis, and it is practical to run on ordinary engineering laptops or desktops.
Previous webinars have presented the process of going from a hull model in Rhino/Orca3D to a completed CFD analysis (view the recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O40EqkyuQCk&feature=youtu.be). This next webinar will begin with a brief overview of that process and a presentation of benchmarks, as well as highlighting recent functionality and speed improvements to the software. Then we will move on to focus on how CFD can be used not just to analyze a design, but also improve it. Presenters will include our experts as well as a customer who will discuss his real-world experience with Orca3D Marine CFD. After a Q&A session, we will present the very affordable pricing options, and the steps to follow to get a free 30-day evaluation of the software, including technical support.

CosmoCaixa Barcelona is hosting the exhibition Mathematical Art, a group of iron and steel sculptures made by the Dutch artist and mathematician Rinus Roelofs. His pieces show different mathematical concepts: dual and stellar polyhedra (the first is obtained from another by turning each face into a vertex and vice versa, and the second by building a pyramid on each face), and operations of turns and translations on divisions that make 3D structures from 2D surfaces.

The exhibition can be seen until September 2019.

Rinus Roelofs uses Rhino and Grasshopper to build all his artistic models.



MecSoft Corporation has announced the latest version of MecSoft’s fully integrated CAM plugin for Rhinoceros 5 and 6, RhinoCAM 2019.

Release highlights include:
  • 2½ Axis – Improved feature-based machining, new drag knife cutting method, new cornering options in profile machining
  • 3 Axis – Improvements in flat area machining, new trochoidal entry motions for high-speed machining, improved cut connections and performance improvements
  • 4 Axis – Smoother motion outputs in the post-processor
  • 5 Axis – Nutating head support and local coordinate plane programming 
  • Simulation – Tool shank collision detection and early error detection
  • Free TURN module included in certain 2019 MILL configurations
  • Other productivity and user interface enhancements
  • NEST has been enhanced to add 3D object nesting

Given the positive feedback, Car Body Design has published the Introduction to Grasshopper Webinar that they hosted on December.

The webinar, presented by Marco Traverso, focuses on the possible applications in transportation design, product design and industrial design industries.


On the occasion of the 3rd Italian Design Day and of the Sydney DesignFestival 2019, the Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney (an official body of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs) has invited Arturo Tedeschi, architect and computational designer, as a guest speaker of the event Inside Italian Design: Beyond the Glossy Cover. Arturo Tedeschi,  based in Milano (Italy) and worldwide known for his avant-garde work and for the best seller AAD Algorithms Aided Design, promotes a new approach that merges innovative fabrication techniques, algorithms, virtual reality, and AI.

Arturo develops all his projects using Rhino and Grasshopper.
