FACADES+INNOVATION Conference, Chicago (US)
October 11-12, 2012
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, knowledge of RhinoScript is advantageous.
EvoluteTools Pro is an advanced Rhino plug-in providing access to powerful paneling and geometry optimization tools with a user friendly interface. Participants will receive a 30-day evaluation license of EvoluteTools Pro to further explore its capabilities. Participants will also have a chance to preview new optimization tools and paneling technology.
