rhinoceros 5 + grasshopper parametric plug-in + lasercut production

  • Rhinoceros to computer-controlled-fabrication   Perhaps the most critical emphasis of this workshop is to enable participants a hands-on eye-opening experience into automated machining to recognize the great opportunity to generate bottom-up strategies from the earliest design stages that feed off of production aspects. Ultimately fabrication know-how can wisely empower design creativity and enable an incredibly cyclical digital < > physical workflow negating the more typical linear progression from design to building.
  • Lasercut production  Participants will gain a full understanding of rationalizing a 3d design into geometries reconstructed through laser cut sheet material & file preparations.
  • Grasshopper  Described as a ‘visual programming for Rhino’… Grasshopper is a plug-in enabling a parametric design environment for designing relationships versus explicit objects or forms. Sessions will focus on the nature of information processing and how it can be used to manipulate data stream inputs from various sources and use data-feeds to inform geometry or data structures. Participants will learn basic functionality of this vast interface.
  • Suited for various experience levels   Those with no Rhino experience will quickly becoming adept through integrated exercises focused on modeling for fabrication; those with some prior Rhino experience will be able to take their understanding far beyond basics of modeling to a further precise & wider understanding of its compatibility to design using parametric features of Grasshopper. All will realize how to to instrumentally drive design intentions in congruence with machining processes.
  • Public Finale presentation  LaN will present on their current pursuits of their ‘LIVING FORCES’ focus (the accumulation of personal health data to drive architectural design) intermixed with critical points of digital design & manufacture.
  • Post-workshop digital distributions  Participants will receive online recommended texts + reference videos covering critical realms of: geometry, parametric nature, prototyping, participants will be invited to post online bios as part of our network of participants.
