Are you interested in gaining Parametric competency to push your design skills to the next level?
Are you ready to learn a very exciting and powerful tool that will take your ideas and concepts to a whole new realm?
This Parametric Design Workshop will provide you with the necessary knowledge and ability to use Grasshopper, a free visual programming plugin in Rhinoceros. The workshop will also include a hands on parametric project.
If you already know Grasshopper and would like to uplift your parametric knowledge, then you can choose option 2.
Option 1: General Workshop for Beginners - 16 hours: Start 17.11.2018
The Participants will be given optional (but highly recommended) weekly assignments to practice their skills.
The Digital Fabrication Project will be a “Parametric Vase” that the participants will design and fabricate. Participants will choose 1 out of 5 types of parametric families (1- Wavy, 2- Twist, 3- Cellular, 4- Flat, 5- Organic), then they will develop their design into a complete Grasshopper Definition and fabricate it using FabLab’s facilities (3D Printing, Laser Cutting or CNC Milling).
The instructor will support the participants to make sure their projects will be realized on time.
