McNeel welcomes Gwyllim​ ​Jahn and Cameron​ ​Newnham, co-founders of Fologram, for a 3-day Augmented Reality Workshop for Rhino and Grasshopper users at McNeel Europe in Barcelona.

With augmented​ ​reality​ ​(AR)​ ​environments​ ​designers​ ​can visualize 3D​ ​models​ ​within​ ​physical environments​ ​and​ ​at​ ​scale.​ ​​This training​ introduces new​ ​tools​ ​and​ ​workflows​ ​that​ ​allow​ ​3D models​ ​to​ ​be​ ​dynamic,​ ​leverage​ ​headset​ ​data​ ​(position ​​and ​​orientation, ​​gaze, ​​and​ ​gesture)​ ​and​ ​​to​ ​build​ ​new​ ​applications​ ​directly​ ​within​ ​Grasshopper.​ ​

Participants​ ​will​ ​form​ ​teams​ ​and​ ​collaborate​ ​closely​ ​with​ ​workshop​ ​leaders​ ​to develop​ ​projects​ ​with​ ​immediate​ ​use​ ​cases​ ​and​ ​based​ ​around​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​following​ ​themes:

  • Proximity​ ​feedback​ ​for​ ​measurement​ ​and​ ​interaction​
  • Responsive​ ​environments​
  • Interactive​ ​holographic modeling
  • Interactive​ ​design​ ​markup
  • Interactive​ ​simulation​ ​and​ ​analysis​

​Participants​ ​will​ ​build​ ​prototypical​ ​projects​ ​with immediate​ ​use​ ​cases​ ​in​ ​industry​ ​and​ ​gain​ ​confidence​ ​in​ ​developing​ ​further​ ​applications​ ​for​ ​mixed reality​ ​environments.​ ​All​ ​participants​ ​will​ ​work​ ​directly​ ​with​ ​Microsoft​ ​Hololens​ ​headsets​ ​through​ ​all phases​ ​of​ ​the​ ​workshop.

Day 1 ​(AR​​ Visualization)​

  • Introduction
  • Use​ ​of​ ​holographic​ ​software​ ​to​ ​stream​ ​CAD ​models​ ​to​ ​the​ ​HoloLens
  • Use​ ​of​ ​generative​ ​design​ ​approaches​ ​and​ ​holographic​ ​models​ ​using Rhino,​ ​Grasshopper​ ​and​ ​custom​ ​plugins
  • Group work with brief presentations: Production of ​digital​ ​prototypes​ ​and​ ​test​ ​on​ ​mixed reality​ ​headsets, revise​ ​digital​ ​design​ ​in​ ​response

Day 2

  • Working with 3D scan data
  • Working with visual tracking models for 6dof object interaction
  • Parametric schematics for interactivity (capturing gestures and building event-based models)
  • Project development

Day 3

  • ​Supervised​ ​personal​ ​project​ ​development
  • Discussion and​ ​feedback
