Parametric Furniture Design with Grasshopper and Rhino workshop
19-21 August, 9:30 to 18:00
Exhibition Center Flora
Parametric Furniture Design with Grasshopper and Rhino is an intense course combining algorithmic methods for 3D modeling with digital fabrication of furniture. The purpose is to produce furniture through using parametric design with geometries in a way that allows materialization.
The course will go through the processes of constructing a shape algorithm, customization, 3D printing and fabrication. Participants will be introduced to parametric modeling tools in Rhinoceros and Grasshopper, which will allow them to create and visualize unique custom designs. For this purpose, 3D printers will be available on the site for all experimental needs. Participants will have the opportunity to get their designs manufactured and learn about all the aspects of the fabrication process. In the end, participants will have their prototype 3D printed.
What you will learn
- Intro to Grasshopper, creation and customization of various shapes through parametric modeling
- 3D printing prototypes
- Visualization with Keyshot
Bring your computer with Rhino 5, Grasshopper and Keyshot installed. (Trial versions can be found on each software company’s website.) DesignMorphine will send participants links to the required software, trials, and plug-ins to download. Please have the software installed before the start of the workshop. If you have issues installing software, DesignMorphine may be able to help you during the workshop.
No previous software experience required.
There will be 3D printers on site for fabrication.
All participants who complete the intensive course will receive a certificate of completion.
Drinks and lunch snacks are provided.
Please note that places are very limited on a first pay first serve basis!
Early registration until 31 July, 2016.
