This webinar we are discussing spherene™ metamaterial and its design tool integration in Rhino3D. spherene metamaterial is revolutionizing design and manufacturing. It mimics bulk material properties, drastically cutting design time. spherene is the industry’s only isotropic minimal surface, versatile and inherently resilient. spherene’s Adaptive Density Minimal Surfaces (ADMS) are printable on any 3D printer in any material. The Rhino3D integration allows easy, best in class design, saving a lot of engineering time.

After an introduction about spherene metamaterial features we dive into a demonstration of the workflow and make an important announcement.


Christian Waldvogel is the founder of spherene, a Zurich-based company developing autonomous design software. He holds a Master’s degree in architecture from ETHZ, made his first 3D print in 1999, and spent most part of the 21st century as a conceptual artist. His work, which aims to reflect humanity as a species, on a planet and in the universe, was published and exhibited worldwide, and has directly led to the discovery of the spherene geometry in 2012.

Daniel Bachmann, the Chief Innovation Officer at spherene, brings a background in electronics engineering and a successful track record in 3D production, having owned two companies. His interdisciplinary skills extends to rapid prototyping, usability and interaction design. Prior to spherene, he spent eight years sharing his knowledge of various manufacturing techniques, including woodworking, plaster and concrete casting, CNC, additive manufacturing, and laser cutting, as a lecturer for model building and design and as workshop deputy at ETH Zurich’s Rapid Architectural Prototyping Laboratory.
