ControlMAD Master Course in Parametric Design (Madrid, Spain) - March-June 2020


ControlMAD Master Course in Parametric Design
March-June 2020

A unique study program in the world that introduces you to parametric design and digital manufacturing in the fields of Product Design, Architecture, Landscape, Digital Fabrication... through the creation of physical and digital parametric models using as main tools Grasshopper for Rhino and our CNC machines (Computer Numerical Control).

The course is divided into 5 groups with several units. The aim of every unit is that students can learn new parametric tools based on Grasshopper.

• GROUP I - NURBS modelling (Rhino, Grasshopper)
• GROUP II - Digital Fabrication (visits to parametric outstanding buildings)
• GROUP III - Mesh modelling (Grasshopper for organic design, structural analysis and form-finding)
• GROUP IV - Interoperability (Grasshopper and its connection with arduino, sensors, data from internet, Python...)
• GROUP V - Thesis (individual work on the main interests of the student based on the previous units + V-Ray for rendering)

Regarding Parametric Fabrication, we will use our CNC 3 axis milling machine large size, 3D printers FDM and Trotec Laser machine. Material prototyping is included in the course.
