As algorithms increasingly impact our world, designers must learn how to use and create design computing programs. Structured around a series of fundamental design problems, this course will show you Python code, its rules and syntax, and teach you what we can do with Python in its application and design.
By the end of this online course, you’ll know the fundamentals of Python and RhinoScript and also understand them through the lens of their applications in geometrically focused design lessons and exercises. This course is designed for any students and practitioners who use Rhinoceros and want to design more complex geometric forms by structuring and implementing coding logic.
This course will help designers (architectural, industrial, product, web, furniture), artists (multimedia, digital, sculpture), and programmers. By completing the course, students can decide if they’d like to study more advanced computing topics through further education, such as recursion, agents, and complex generative systems.
You will need access to Rhino. Download a free 90-day trial for Windows and Mac. The evaluation is fully functional for the first 90 days. After 90 days a purchased license will be required to save files or use plug-ins. The instructor will walk you through how to install Rhino in the course.
