This year's Chicago FACADES+INNOVATION Conference will include a day-long EvoluteTools PRO and Rhino workshop, on October 12, 2012, at the Illinois Institute of Technology Main Campus, Engineering Building One.
This workshop will focus on optimization of complex geometry envelopes for efficient and cost effective fabrication. We will cover all steps from design to optimization to detailing to generating fabrication information and how to parametrically link these steps to become an integrated workflow. Throughout the whole workshop EvoluteTools PRO 2.0 for Rhino will be used by the attendees for hands-on examples and exercises. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own designs to be rationalized. Experience in using Rhino and knowledge of RhinoScript is advantageous.
