Controlmad's summer workshop in Design & Parametric Fabrication (Madrid) - June 17-July 9 or July 8-30, 2020


Controlmad's summer workshop in Design & Parametric Fabrication (Madrid), is organized so that any student without previous knowledge in 3D modeling or Rhino, may get a solid base for going into parametric design. For that, the workshop uses Grasshopper, a free graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. It is used at many famous architecture offices like Zaha Hadid or Norman Foster and at the Sagrada Familia (Barcelona), one of the most technologically advanced buildings in the world.

Students not only learn how to model and render but also will implement various strategies to obtain structures of complex models, analyze, calculate, interact with the physical environment etc. with the chance to manufacture different models with CNC technology, like cutting laser Trotec and 3D printers. The final goal is to create, design and 3D model a cool object, prototype or sculpture using Rhino and Grasshopper, get a fast render with V-Ray, and make it real with digital machines.

The course is scheduled in five units along four weeks.


1st edition: June 17-July 9, 2020
2nd edition: July 8-30, 2020
