• LaN + SOLIDO hands-on workshop //  Rhino-to-Rhinocam / 3 & 5 axis CNC Milling / 3d Scanning
  • 4 evening sessions & 2 weekend day sessions  with on-site equipment
  • This workshop is intended to suit a range of levels– those with no Rhinoceros modeling or CNC machining experience will gain experience working with between modeled geometeries and designing tool-paths for production. Those with previous experience will have hands-on access to taking their understanding further. Sessions are co-instructed by Solido Founder Filippo Moroni & LaN Co-director Monika Wittig.

  • Workshop will focus on the potential to design in parallel with CNC fabrication technologies.  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.


  • ///////////  INSTRUCTED SOFTWARE / HARDWARE

  • All instructed software is available for free trial downloads – instructions will be sent to registered participants
  • Rhinoceros
  • Use & brief instruction in the workshop will focus on modeling for fabrication – precision, control of free-form surfaces, file organization for machining & iterative design explorations of tool-paths greatly affecting the 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. It comes with hundreds of free post-processors as well as a post-processor generator to create user definable post-processors)
