The ALGORITHMIC ACCESSORIES workshop combines algorithmic methods for 3D modeling with the digital fabrication of jewelry. The purpose is to produce various shapes through parametric design and apply them on accessories in a way that allows their materialization. The workshop will go through the processes of constructing a shape algorithm, customization, 3D printing, and fabrication.
Parametric modeling tools in Rhino and Grasshopper will be introduced. You can then create and visualize unique custom designs and learn how to materialize them in a specially equipped Fablab. A FDM/STL 3D printer will be on site for all experimental needs. Further detailing and metal fabrication of the accessories will also be available. You will have the opportunity to get your designs manufactured and learn about all the aspects of the fabrication process.
What you will learn
- Introduction to Grasshopper and algorithmic geometry
- Creation and customization of complex geometries through parametric modelling
- Fabrication tools
