PROCEED TO LaN @ BOULDER / DENVER FALL 2011 WORKSHOPS >>

 


August 29-31 2011   LaN @ CLUB WORKSHOP DENVER

3 evening workshop on LIVE aspects of DIGITAL DESIGN & FABRICATION for DESIGNERS

3 evenings of  LaN instruction on Rhinoceros Modeling and Digital Fabrication Strategies.  Special interest will be placed on modeling for physical production through digital manufacturing techniques.  Participants will not only learn to model complex geometries, but also techniques of getting a design “out of the computer” through design-to-fabrication processes.  LaN asks you to abandon representation modes of design and practice LIVE.

  • Monday Aug 29:  6-10pm+
  • LECTURE : INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL FABRICATION
  • INSTRUCTIONAL : INTRODUCTION TO RHINOCEROS 3d MODELING
  • Learn the 3d modeling environment of Rhinoceros 4.0/5.0 as well as why LaN chooses to utilize this platform which has become surrounded by a large open-source community and ever-growing list of plug-ins to supplement Rhino basic functionality.
  • FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY: laser cutter
  • Tuesday Aug 30: 6-10pm+
  • INSTRUCTIONAL : RHINO FOR FABRICATION
  • Learn the 3d modeling environment of Rhinoceros through a fabrication focus. Emphasizing commands and strategies relevant to machining complex geometries… let us frame your modeling thinking back to design, materiality, and advanced geometry. Participants will gain a geometrical understanding of surface types and how they can be analyzed, categorized, and most importantly…constructed.
  • FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY: 3D printer
  • _
  • Wednesday Aug  31:  6-10:00pm+
  • LECTURE : FABRICATION TECHNOLOGIES
  • INSTRUCTIONAL: RHINOCAM
  • RhinoCAM leads us on an exploration of CNC milling–3axis, 5 axis, 7  etc. LaN walks participants through machinery & processes, technical aspects of Rhinocam & of course the design to production feedback loop–machining aspects that drive your design from initial phases. Output is no longer an afterthought. Rhinocam exercises include 2, 2.5, & 3D surfacing operations. Learn the process of simulating toolpaths in RhinoCAM to exporting for production via Club Workshop’s 3 axis cnc router. Hands-on equipment time will leave you with the basics of operating this machinery on your own.
  • FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY: 3 axis CNC router
  • FABRICATION HOSTED BY CLUB WORKSHOP~ DENVER
