algorithmic modeling for Rhino
*RHINO + Grasshopper*
*Introductory & open session to generative modeling*
*Hosted by the Eugene Parametric Society for all students*
The intro session will be lead by William Robert Taylor who will lead you through the basic concepts of generative modeling in Rhino. Participants will learn how to create simple geometry based on parameters and be exposed to the general environment of Grasshopper for Rhino.
At 1pm we will have an open session to discuss generative modeling strategies and how they can be useful in a meaningful way in the design studio in addition to a show and tell of what EPS has been up to during the fall term thus far.
*WHERE + When*

*Eugene Parametric Society* was founded by Erik Hegre in the fall of 2009 and comprised of Nico Wright, Chris Nielsen, Will Krzymowski and Devin Saez. The group's mission is to explore appropriate and meaningful ways to utilize contemporary computing and CAD technologies for design and performance opportunities.
