• LaN + SOLIDO hands-on workshop
  • REVERSE ENGINEERING DESIGN 3d scanning < rapid prototyping < cnc milling
  • 2 evening sessions & 2 weekend day sessions with hands-on use of on-site equipment
  • This workshop is intended to suit a range of levels– those with no Rhinoceros modeling or digital fabrication experience will gain experience working with between modeled geometeries and fabrication possibilies. Those with previous experience will have hands-on access to taking their understanding further. Sessions are co-instructed by Solido Founder Filippo Moroni & LaN Director Monika Wittig.

  • Workshop will focus on the potential to design in parallel with CNC fabrication technologies. Technologies focused on:
  • RhinoCam will allow participants to simulate CNC milling effects in the friendly Rhinoceros environment. Instruction will encourage how to add design value without extending economies of time and material. Participants will be introduced to an array of real world examples where a clear understanding of production parameters has driven design potential.

  • Weekend session will be production-intensive utilizing Solido’s on-site Belotti 5 axis mill. Understand the difference and implications between 3 & 5 axis milling.

  • All instructed software is available for free trial downloads – instructions will be sent to registered participants
  • Instruction in English with Italian assistance as needed
  • Rhinoceros
  • Instruction in the workshop will focus on modeling for fabrication – specifically commands & techniques for producing clean 3d printing files, file preparation for CNC milling, and iterative design explorations of highlighting how production may greatly affect fabricated form.
  • RhinoCAM
  • “RhinoCAM is a Rhinoceros plug-in that runs completely inside of Rhino 4.0/5.0. Combining the free-form modeling power of Rhino and the legendary machining capabilities of VisualMILL, this plug-in offers an easy to use yet powerful general purpose machining program for the general machinist. RhinoCAM includes 2-1/2, 3, 4 & 5 axis milling and hole making operations.”
