Event Description

Karamba+Grasshopper 3D
with Robert Vierlinger and Matthew Tam
on 21-25 July 2015
in Bratislava, Slovakia

The upcoming rese arch LIVE workshop will investigate form finding and 3d rapid prototyping using state of the art material simulation and optimisation. Participants will be guided through methods of advanced structural analysis and evolutionary algorithms implemented in Grasshopper, Karamba and Octopus in a 5 day workshop taught by Robert Vierlinger and Matthew Tam within the premises of the Academy of Fine Arts & Design in Bratislava, Slovakia. The workshop will cover the basics of setting up a karamba definition and more advanced form finding techniques with beams and shells through to preparing files for 3d printing and 2d documentation. 

For the Grasshopper newcomers there is a preparatory crash course on 20 July 2015 taught by Ján Pernecký. The workshop will be held entirely in English.
