Beschreibung des Events


Are you interested in gaining Parametric competency to push your design skills to the next level?
Are you ready to learn a very exciting and powerful tool that will take your ideas and concepts to a whole new realm?

This Parametric Design General Workshop will provide you with the necessary knowledge and ability to use Grasshopper, a free visual programming plugin in Rhinoceros. The workshop will also include a hands on parametric project.

. The Workshop starts on Sunday Feb 26th 2017

General Workshop Schedule

Total duration is 16 hours: 4 Sundays, 10:00-14:00

Unit 5 (2-hours): Intermediate + Digital Fabrication Project: Trees, Branching, Flattening, Grafting.

Unit 6 (2-hours): Intermediate + Digital Fabrication Project: Attractor Logic, Paneling, Geometry Morphing.

Sunday 19.03.2017:

Unit 7 (2-hours): Advanced + Digital Fabrication Project: Lunchbox, Paneling Tools, Weavebird, Orienting, Flattening.

Unit 8 (2-hours): Advanced + Digital Fabrication Project: Text Tagging, Dimensioning, STL Export for 3D Printing.

The Participants will be given optional (but highly recommended) weekly assignments to practice their skills.

The Digital Fabrication Project will be a “Parametric Vase” that the participants will design.
Participants will choose 1 out of 5 types of parametric families (1- Breathe, 2- Twist, 3- Cellular, 4- Flat, 5- Waffle), then they will develop their design into a complete Grasshopper Definition and fabricate it using FabLab’s amenities (3D Printing, Laser Cutting or CNC Milling).

Examples of Parametric Vase Family Types:

Type 1: Breathe

“Algorithms-Aided Design”, Arturo Tedeschi

Type 2: Twist

Martin Žampach for be3D

Type 3: Cellular

Nik Markellov

Type 4: Flat

Maak Mijn ldee

Type 5: Waffle

The instructor will support the participants to make sure their projects will be realized on time.

IMPORTANT: FabLab is very glad to provide the usage of the fabrication machines (3D Printers/Laser Cutters/CNC) to the workshop participants for FREE!

Public Exhibition of Participants‘ Projects at FabLab by the end of the Workshop:
