generative modeling for Rhino
SAT 9th - TUES 12th June 2012
GRASSHOPPER | METAL | ROBOTS
The RoboFold Facade Design and Build is a four day intensive workshop, exploring the RoboFold fabrication process for 1:1 components and assemblies. The event will be held in London at the RoboFold factory/studio from June 9th-12th. Workshop participants will investigate the design of facade forms in paper and card, and transfer these to Rhino's Grasshopper plugin to simulate folding and robotics. Using the in-house CNC vinyl cutter and CNC router, various scale prototypes will be folded by hand and by robot. The final 1:1 facade will be formed using 6-axis industrial robots.
