LaN invites professionals and students alike to attend a 4 day workshop (evenings + Saturday) <b>Digital Fabrication: from intro to advanced</b>.  Workshop will instruct on the use of RHINO as it pertains to digital fabrication (ie: rationalizing complex surfaces, preparing 3-d surfaces for various 2-d fabrication methods, creating solid models in Rhino for use with 3-d printing technology, among others). Valuable  plug-ins (i.e. RhinoCAM & Grasshopper) will also be introduced and explored.

The workshop is sponsored by Sweet Onion Creations.  Participants will be privileged to learn of valuable tips from 3d printing industry professionals.

Workshop further will feature daily lectures pertaining to a range of digital fabrication aspects– machining processes, CNC equipment, precedents, parametric thinking, parametric modeling,  advanced geometry & collaborative design platforms.

This workshop is intended for all levels– those with no Rhino experience will gain a working understanding of the program and a vast overview of its compatibility and potential to design in parallel with CNC technologies. Those with prior RHINO experience will be able to take their understanding far beyond basics of modeling to precision modeling, integration with CAM, parametric realms, real world examples, & output to 3dprinting / CNC milling.  All will realize how to instrumentally drive design intentions via congruence with machining processes.
