One Click LCA for COP26 - free for Rhino users until the end of 2021

Early design stages have the biggest influence on embodied carbon reductions.

Carbon saving potential reduces dramatically throughout the life of a project. But during those critical early phases, it can be hard to assess the impact of design decisions due to a lack of detailed information.

The One Click LCA and Rhino integration enables designers and architects to measure and compare the embodied carbon impact of different options, right from concept design stage. Making it possible to identify the best material options to slash the embodied carbon of your designs.

One Click LCA is offering Rhino users a free carbon assessment tool until the end of 2021. The tool is fully integrated with Rhino.

Perpetual Mechanisms V1.0 webinar by DesignMorphine (November 27, 2021)

Perpetual Mechanisms V1.0 webinar by DesignMorphine
November 27, 2021

Perpetual Mechanisms V1.0 will build a looping parametric animation from the ground up with Grasshopper. Participants will learn how to plan out the steps of an animation and how to make multiple sub-animations happening at once in correlation or successively based on a single number slider controlling time. This course will also look at how to handle automated camera movements to trick the perspective of a general motion, making the impossible seem possible with animation moments that could only occur at certain camera angles. Once the model is completed, there will be many parameters for you to tweak and adjust to create a various satisfying animations, without the need for any manual adjustments. Afterward, the animations will be rendered with V-Ray 5 for Rhino locally and on the cloud. Grasshopper will also be used to apply textures and set up simple lights parametrically so they a coherent and coordinated with the animated system. At the very end, rendered frames will be compiled into GIFs and MP4s directly from Grasshopper to produce professional-quality seamless perpetual loop animations.

Grasshopper: A Modeling Software Redefining The Design Process (by Parametric Architecture)

"Grasshopper was created in a perspective to extend in those area where Rhino could not! It is a versatile plugin that takes design complexities to a new-found level by exceeding the limit beyond Rhino. Although, Rhino is a strong software tool in itself that has the capability of editing, analysing, and dealing with some of the most intense of architectural design and detailing."

DesignMorphine Masters Y22/23 Degree

Master of Science in Computational and Advanced Design (MSc CAD)
University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy (Online)
September 2022-June 2023

Everything humanity has designed so far is limited and based on how our bodies are designed and work, the way they experience reality around us. However, in this age and time, we have reached the crossroads where technology can and will eventually shape not only our minds but our body, as well. 

In this sense, designing the future entails, first and foremost, designing the body that will live that future. Challenges inevitably arise and demand innovators and pioneers to overcome them; new tools and new technologies are required to materialize the answer; limits and boundaries will be crossed, and the equilibrium will change. In this journey, the compass will be a scalable notion of the human condition. Housing, transit systems, and the ways one moves around in the city and the whole structure of the city itself, are essential aspects one must consider when designing for this new reality. 

By changing the unit the whole world is built around, the human body, we are no longer concerned with just designing parts of the world we live in. We are designing the whole world we live in. It’s not a mere design process; it’s cosmogony.

Webinar: Kuwait International Airport (October 21, 2021)

Webinar: Kuwait International Airport
The overall finite element model and the importance of Open BIM
October 21, 2021

Take part in Sofistik's upcoming webinar in collaboration with Werner Sobek AG. Matteo Brunetti of Werner Sobek AG will present one of their most ambitious projects--Kuwait International Airport.

Kuwait's international airport will be expanded in 2022 by a new terminal building (Terminal 2) based on a design by Foster + Partners. Despite an edge length of 1.2 km and a roof area of more than 320,000 m², the building was planned without expansion joints. The main structure consists of curved pre-stressed concrete parts with a maximum span of 145m. Overall, the size of the building, the complex interaction between the various components, and the innovative systems render this project an extraordinary one.

Matteo Brunetti will give you an overview of the demanding project focusing on the overall finite element model. Using Grasshopper and the SOFiSTiK Rhinoceros Interface, a seamless Open BIM workflow was implemented and formed an essential part of the project.

xNURBS Rhino plugin API Package (C, RhinoCommon, Rhinoscript and Grasshopper)

xNURBS announces the availability of API Package. Users can now run xNURBS inside the code they develop or run xNURBS without showing the xNURBS UI. The API package includes the C/C++ APIs and the .NET APIs (i.e., RhinoCommon, Rhino.Python, Rhinoscript, and Grasshopper). The APIs are a subset of the fully-fledged APIs from XN Kernel.

The API package is freely available to customers with a xNURBS Rhino plugin license key.

Key features of xNURBS:

  • Unlimited capacities for solving NURBS: Its optimization algorithm can solve virtually any NURBS surface in a matter of milliseconds (regardless of how complex the constraints are).
  • High-quality surfaces: For a given set of constraints, xNURBS’ optimization algorithm uses an energy-minimization method to generate the smoothest NURBS surface among all possible solutions. The generated surface quality is outstanding.
  • xNURBS is one super powerful NURBS tool that fixes virtually all surfacing issues for existing CAD software.
  • Easy-to-use: It uses one straightforward UI for all kinds of NURBS modeling.
  • Super robust: xNURBS is rock solid and works flawlessly.
  • Native CAD surfaces: xNURBS is based on NURBS, i.e., the native CAD surfaces, which can be directly used for any CAD modeling operations without any geometry translation.
