Material Matters workshop, May 12-13


Material Matters is a two-day intensive design, prototyping, and fabrication workshop to be held in New York City during the weekend of May 12-13.  The workshop will operate through a framework of computational and fabrication strategies that hinge on the peculiarities of material and the emergent set of knowledge associated with the work of the hand. In a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment, participants will develop digital and fabricated prototypes utilizing Grid-Based Modeling techniques via PanelingTools and Machining Strategies with RhinoCAMMore...

Topics include:

  • Computational Geometry: Introduction to Curves, Surfaces, Meshes in Rhinoceros
  • Grid-Based Modeling + Implicit History: Introduction to Paneling Tools
  • Pressures + Influencers: Proximity, Image Mapping, Curvature Strategies
  • Machining Strategies: Introduction to RhinoCAM
  • Fabrication: Prototyping Workflows with a 3-Axis CNC Router
