Maria Chiara Virgili announced Maxwell Render Xpert

Tue, 2015-03-17 12:56
In her article on the Maxwell Render blog, Rhino trainer, Maria Chiara Virgili, explains how she used Rhino and Maxwell Render to recreate the interiors of a chain of pizzerias in Italy.  When asked why she uses Maxwell, she says, “Maxwell is the most realistic render machine I’ve ever used, the organization is simple and I don’t have to waste too much time guessing values – it is all very self-explanatory. It’s not difficult to create a material from scratch or specific textures, and the same goes for the lights, which are truly exceptional…The customers love to see projects in the most realistic, virtual way as with Maxwell, frequently confusing them with real photo shots. It is amazing to see their surprise when they discover that these are not photo shots!!”Read here the complete story...

Maxwell Render comes with the Rhino plug-in (for Windows)
Rhino for Mac users can already use Maxwell through the Maxwell Studio workflow

Unfold Moving Matter
Re-activating Milan's Ex-Industrial
7-12 April 2015

Milan's Design week is the most important event worldwide for design and innovation. In the past five years "Ventura-Lambrate" district has been the new platform where all the emerging designers, architects and visionaries took over the Ex-Industrial zone by the growing trend of industrial refurbishments. This year, the city of Milan will be hosting the "World Expo", one of the most vital events in Milan's contemporary history, integrating an era of modern development. The issue of Milan's unused and Ex-Industrial buildings remains in question.

The Unfold Moving Matter workshop aims to approach the regeneration of a forsaken warehouse, named 'SBODIO32', at the edge of Milan's new design district.

Creating a Guitar Body with RhinoCAM, new tutorial

Fri, 2015-03-06 21:35

Creating a Guitar Body with RhinoCAM with Taylor Hokanson
New course available on Lynda.com
Are you interested in making your own instruments? Do you want to see how computer-aided fabrication results in real-world products? This course is for you. Educator/DIY engineer Taylor Hokanson demonstrates how to use RhinoCAM to prepare a 3D model of an electric guitar body/neck for later fabrication on a CNC mill. This project covers a variety of techniques, including flip milling, profiling, pocketing, horizontal roughing, and parallel finishing, and shows how to adjust the model to account for third-party components like pickups.

Topics include:
  •  Setting up and editing the model
  • Adding bridges for flip milling
  • A variety of two-axis and three-axis machining operations
  • Simulating and troubleshooting multiple tool paths

Architectural Visualization Workshop in Barcelona

Wed, 2015-03-04 18:28

Architectural Visualization Workshop
April 16-17, 2015
Barcelona, Spain
The focus of this workshop is to provide all the necessary knowledge to make renderings inside the Rhino platform. We will use V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino to develop such renderings.

In these two intense days, participants will learn the workflow for rendering inside Rhino with the V-Ray plug-in. 

Day one starts as an introduction and ends with some advanced topics. Day two covers advanced settings and post production.

The course starts with rendering basics and then covers more advanced settings to end up with some tips for post-producing in Adobe Photoshop. Participants will develop typical case studies about rendering architectural visualizations, interior visualizations and product design among other basic case studies that use render as main representation technique. While developing those case studies, participants learn how to handle V-Ray parameters and how to create textures inside the normal workflow for rendering. 

Instructor: Matúš Nedecký from FlyingArchitecture
Language: English
Schedule: 16-17 April 2015 // 9.00-18.00
Organizers: icreatia, SMD, FlyingArchitecture
