Intro to CAD 3d modeling with Rhino, render, parametric design and digital fabrication to develop designs, models and prototypes.
Hybrid edition with live sessions. Online and/or onsite.
Before starting the workshop, we will give you access to our online platform, where you can find documentation and link to the Zoom sessions. Sessions will be recorded.
*Important note: The course is live online, but the last two sessions the participants can attend onsite at our fablab in Madrid to discover the main features of our digital tool
Find out the main features of the last Rhino 7 version!
Rhino is a 3D software to model objects and projects with a high level of precision, ready for rendering, animation, drafting, analysis or fabrication. In this course we can start with a sketch, CAD file, real object or just an idea.
> FIRST PART. Rhino 3d
The most important and with more training hours. Students learn basic concepts of 3D modeling, interface and how to start creating and editing simple objects. Next we will jump into the generation of complex surfaces with different modeling strategies and how to obtain certain information for digital fabrication. Although the basis of Rhino is using NURBS we will play and compare with other important geometric entities as SubD for organic modeling and meshes.
> SECOND PART. Rendering
Showing the most interesting tools for animation, 2d drawing, captures…together with the Rhino render, really improved in the last versions. In a basic manner, it is covered how to assign materials, textures and simple lighting options.
> THIRD PART. Parametric Design
Brief introduction to the plugin GRASSHOPPER for Rhino, a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. The idea is to compare Rhino and Grasshopper workflows and connections, and also discover the power of this tool for advanced design.
> FOURTH PART. Digital Fabrication
We will cover most useful tools and machines for digital fabrication through videos and exercises. The goal is to know the main advantages, differences and how to organise files and information for each system for works in prototyping, architectural models, mock-ups, etc. Particulary, we will talk about 3d printers, CNC milling machines, laser cutting, robots..
