Generative Assemblies: Constraint-Based Component Design + Digital Fabrication


Dates:
Sat Mar 09, 2013 10:00 - Sun Mar 10, 2013

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

Discover beautiful, playful, and self-structuring forms using Grasshopper and Kangaroo.

About This Workshop:
Expanding on the capabilities of the parametric tool, Grasshopper, Kangaroo provides creative professionals with the ability to integrate physics-based simulation techniques into their workflow. In applications ranging from architectural to product design, this workshop will cover advanced techniques for modeling adaptable components using dynamic constraints and forces in a performance-oriented environment.

In a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment, you will learn techniques for using Parametric Design, Physics-Based Simulation, and Component Detailing for Digital Fabrication. Through guided exercises, group discussions, and one-on-one prototyping sessions, you will design and construct a series of component assemblies.

Takeaways:
  • Focused learning with Grasshopper and Kangaroo[/*]
  • Approaches to working with constraints, ranging from geometric to physical[/*]
  • Techniques for detailing geometry for Digital Fabrication[/*]
  • Hands-on experience with a large format CNC laser cutter[/*]
  • Assemble and take home a collection of Prototypes

Organic Modeling: Precision Sculpting with TSplines for Rhino


Dates:
Fri Mar 08, 2013 14:00 - Fri Mar 08, 2013

T-Splines gives Rhino users a way of exploring shapes easily and quickly in an intuitive way, closing the gap between design ideation and actual 3D model production.

About This Online Course:
The principles and rationale behind T-Splines will be covered, providing students with the resources to model shapes of any complexity as a single smooth, water-tight surface. Additionally, this intensive course will introduce techniques for working with polygonal and box modeling, direct surface editing, and local definition tools interchangeably.

Takeaways:
  • Introduction to the TSplines plug-in
    Creating and manipulating TSplines geometry[/*]
  • Coupling freeform and precision modeling techniques[/*]
  • Workflows for moving between TSplines and Rhino geometry[/*]
