DESIGN & PARAMETRIC FABRICATION V Edition
Guest instructors last editions:
Giancarlo di Marco, author of the book for modeling in Rhino "Simplified Complexity".
The course is organized in an intensive way so any student without previous knowledge in 3D modeling or Rhino, may get a solid base for going into parametric design. For that, we use Grasshopper, a free graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. It is used at most famous architecture offices like Zaha Hadid or Norman Foster, as engineering teams as the one of Sagrada Familia (Barcelona), one of the most technological advanced buildings in the world.
Students not only learn how to model and render, but also will implement various strategies to obtain structures of complex models, analyze, calculate, interact with the physical environment etc. with the chance of manufacture different models with CNC technology, like cutting laser Trotec and 3D printers The final goal is to create, design and 3D model a cool object, prototype or sculpture using Rhino and Grasshopper, get a fast render with V-Ray and make it real with the digital machines we have.
The course is scheduled in 5 units along 4 weeks:
UNIT 1: 3D MODELING with RHINOCEROS / 18 hours
UNIT 2: PARAMETRIC DESIGN with GRASSHOPPER I / 30 HOURS
UNIT 3: RENDER Introduction to V-Ray for RHINO 6 Hours.
UNIT 4: PARAMETRIC DESIGN with GRASSHOPPER - II / 18 HOURS.
UNIT 5: DIGITAL FABRICATION / 29 HoursI / 28 HOURS
WE HAVE COMPUTERS WITH LAB LICENSES, SO NO NEED TO BRING YOUR LAPTOP TO THE COURSE!
