algorithmic modeling for Rhino
SCRIPTED DESIGN: Introduction to Python for Rhino w/ Skylar Tibbits | 2012 June 09-10
This two-day intensive Scripted Design workshop will introduce participants to the Fundamental Concepts for designing with programs in Python for Rhinoceros. As the next installment in the coLab Series, we are excited to welcome Skylar Tibbits | SJET to modeLab as the lead instructor for this workshop. In a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment, participants will be introduced to concepts such as Syntax, Data Types, and Variables as well as the creation and manipulation of Computational Geometry through the Rhinoscript/RhinoCommon libraries. Workshop curriculum will additionally cover techniques for Storing and Retrieving Multi-Dimensional Data, as well as Controlling the Flow of Scripts via Functions, Conditional Statements, Iteration, and Recursion.
SCRIPTED DESIGN will focus on IronPython for Rhino5.Beta and will consist of a series of instructional lectures, open work sessions, and guided exercises. This workshop is particularly suited for Rhino users new to scripting, Rhinoscript (VB) users looking to convert to Python, or Python users interested in learning 3D modeling in Rhino. As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning.
Attendance will be limited to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors.
