Workshop: introduction to Rhino 6 & Grasshopper by McNeel Europe
No need to register, just join at the given times! (workshops also on Thursday 8 November, 13:30-16:30)
Within this workshop we invite you to join UGent’s Industrial Design students for introducing Rhino & Grasshopper. Learn to use the software, understand how it works and apply Rhino’s and Grasshopper’s tools to your work.
Whatever industrial design branch you’re specialized in, it’s a good way to start to understand the best practice approaches to modelling in Rhino and use parametric procedures in Grasshopper.
Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor and requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.
New Rhino and Grasshopper users, industrial designers with some previous knowledge of other 3D modeling tools.
After this workshop you should be able to:
- Utilize the new features of the Rhino user interface
- Understand the basic concepts
- Define a modelling strategy
- Understand the key features of parametric design
- Describe a design problem parametrically
- Create flexible models for industrial design
- Use the basic components (Grasshopper)
Requires Window skills and other 3D modeling softwares knowledge as desire. Laptop with Rhino 6 already installed ( www.rhino3d.com/download ).
3 hours divided in 3 modules that combine theory and practice.
