Car Design workshop in Barcelona

Fri, 2014-06-13 09:04

Car Design with Rhinoceros
Barcelona (Spain)
July 21-24, 2014

This course is oriented to designers and concept modelers who wish to interact with their creations in a friendly and enriching manner.

This 3-day workshop will provide the students with all the understanding needed to create and easily interact with their concepts using all the potential Rhino and VSR can offer. During this course, students will learn the main concepts regarding car design and how to implement them to improve their concepts into the 3-D environment. The participants will find how to generate, edit, and evaluate their models in a simplified manner. This will let them concentrate on the really important part of their creations: the design.

Instructor: Jorge Biosca
Language: English
Cost: Students 395€ + VAT / Professionals 495€ +VAT (early bird price until July 7)

AA Visiting School Madrid

Thu, 2014-06-12 11:37

AA Visiting School Madrid
Trans-Computational Membranes 2.0
Madrid, Spain
Sep 2-12, 2014

Trans-computational membranes will explore computational design methods through the use of digital-analogue experimentation. It will challenge the way we conceive flexibility within the context of spatial re-adaptation as a driver for social change. Time-based dynamic systems will transform the digital–analogue divide through networks of instantaneous spatial deployment creating a symbiotic spatial context that examines new-era demands.

How to get more views from your building

Wed, 2014-06-11 20:07

To show how to use digital tools in design, Andrew Heumann, designer and computation specialist for NBBJ, addresses a specific design problem in this video. In this 2-minute guide, he studies the views from a Seattle office tower. Through Grasshopper, Heumann orients the tower to take advantage of nearby views: the Space Needle, the Puget Sound, and Lake Union.

DESIGN by DATA workshop, Paris

Wed, 2014-06-11 17:49

Francesco Cingolani, computational designer and architecture teacher, launches DESIGN by DATA, an international design workshop in partnership with the renowed design studio Hugh Dutton Associates and the Parisian cultural center La Gâité Lyrique.
The workshop will take place in Paris from 18th to 20th of July and it aims to explore advanced computational design strategies at the blurring boundaries between art, architecture and engineering.
Participants will learn to use parametric design tools such as Grasshopper and plug-ins in order to design complex architectural features driven by environmental data and passive energy design approach.

Early birds fees are available until 16th of June.

Digital Bench event and RhinoGold training, London

Wed, 2014-06-11 17:29

Simply Rhino & The Goldsmiths Centre present:

The Digital Bench Event 
London (UK) 
9th July 2014 

Innovation moves on with pace, all while there remains no single solution to the trades' digital design and creative process together with any possible output requirement.

One young company has discovered a workflow, and mix of tools, that works extremely well for them.  Come along to hear their story, discuss the highs and lows of any move to digital, the general use of CAD and the associated innovations in rendering plus physical output, including Rapid Prototyping and CAM.

Presenting at the Digital Bench Event are:

  • TDM, the developers of RhinoGold, will present and demonstrate RhinoGold 4.0 which now includes Clayoo and Rhino Emboss.
  • Wax-Masters, residents at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, will explore the myriad of ways in which CAD and CAM can be used in the Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Smallworking, Jewellery and Horological industries, with demonstrations of technologies and explanation of the services offered by Wax-Masters.

Complete info and registration... 

Simply Rhino
RhinoGold 4.0 Complete Training
London (UK) 
10-11th July 2014 

This comprehensive two day class covers all aspects of RhinoGold 4.0 and the new tools within Rhino 5.0 and Clayoo for Rhino.

This course is aimed at jewellery professionals with a good basic knowledge of Rhino and trainees should have ideally completed the Level 1 training.

Starting with an overview and an introduction to the RhinoGold user interface, the class then progresses with a project based approach. Trainees will work through six separate jewellery projects each of which utilises a specific RhinoGold workflow.

Rhino, Grasshopper & VisualARQ workshops

Fri, 2014-06-06 23:06

LA-based design firm, SomewhereSomething, is conducting several Rhino and Rhino-related workshops this summer. From beginning to advanced, select the one that looks good to you. Sign up for one or all four.

Summer 2014 Schedule:
  • Advanced Rhino: Case Study - June 21-22Participants will use Rhino to model a residential project in detail. The model will then be “sliced” up to create a standard set of architectural drawings.
  • Intro to Grasshopper - June 28-29This 2-day introduction to Grasshopper will focus on an overview of the plug-in, geometry types, geometry construction and transformation, list and data tree management.
  • Rhino + VisualARQ for Architecture - July 19-20
    This session will focus on Rhino’s powerful drafting & layout tools. The plugin VisualARQ will be utilized to add architectural features and parametric architectural objects that generate and update 2D drawings in real-time.
  • Armed Forces - August 2-3
    Each participant will fabricate and assemble a small prototype of a multi-axis arm, controlled with a variety of sensory inputs. The project will be developed in Grasshopper and Firefly, using the Arduino microcontroller.
