This workshop is aimed at learning 3d modeling with Rhino and parametric design with Grasshopper, getting physical results with the construction of a parametric prototype as the final exercise using digital fabrication tools.

This edition will be in a hybrid format: PART I will be with live online sessions. PART II (optional) can be followed online or onsite.

The course is organized intensively so any student without previous knowledge in 3D modeling or Rhino, may get a solid base for going into parametric design. For that, we use Grasshopper, a free 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. It is used at most famous architecture offices like Zaha Hadid or Norman Foster, as engineering teams as the one of Sagrada Familia (Barcelona), one of the most technological advanced buildings in the world.

Last week, the work is more intensive to learn the different advantages of using digital fabrication systems.

Students not only learn how to 3D model, but also will implement various strategies to obtain structures of complex models, analyze, calculate, interact with the physical environment etc. with the chance of manufacturing different models with CNC technology, like cutting laser, milling machines and 3D printers. The final goal is to create, design, and 3D model a cool object, prototype, or sculpture using Rhino and Grasshopper and make it real with the digital machines we have.

Basic prototyping materials are included in the course fee.
