To provide a better experience for athletes, companies from the apparel industry like Adidas, Nike, and New Balance have been researching metamaterials, addressing specific needs of movement, cushioning, stability and comfort to enable athletes to perform at their best. Through generative design and digital material behavior simulations, this workshop will investigate material distribution systems that fulfill both structural and functional requirements.
What you will learn:
- Structural analysis with Grasshopper and Millipede
- Robotic programming with Grasshopper and Robots IO & Pufferfish
- Robotic fabrication and printing with flexible materials
- Visualization techniques with KeyShot
