generative modeling for Rhino
Parametric Modelling and Digital Fabrication Workshop for Fashion and Jewellery Designers
Fabricating Patterns is an intense 2-day workshop focused on the computational design and digital fabrication of surface patterns through parametric manipulation in Grasshopper, Rhino’s parametric modelling plug-in. The workshop will introduce basic 3D modelling skills in Rhino, and will familiarise participants with the concepts of algorithmic design and associative modelling through focused design exercises, investigating possibilities of emergent patterns through the differentiation of simple geometries with Grasshopper. In addition to understanding the preparation of leathers and other materials for digital fabrication, each student will have the opportunity to create their own design in a number of materials with the use of our CNC laser cutter. Objects produced will have the opportunity to be developed further and showcased on the online jewellery and product design shop cyberth.com. The design-based workshop will be supported by a series of presentations related to the workshop content.
The workshop is open to both students and professionals in fashion, jewellery design, industrial design, and any other related fields. To ensure maximum time with tutors, the workshop is limited to 8 students. No prior knowledge of Rhino or digital prototyping is required.
