Rhino User Webinar: Nuove soluzioni per il design dell’occhiale, by Riccardo Pietro Visentin (in Italian)


Rhino User Webinar
April 26, 2023, at 4:00 PM CEST

In questo webinar, tramite l’uso delle SubD e della modellazione parametrica con Grasshopper, vedremo come Rhino permette di migliorare il tradizionale flusso di lavoro nella progettazione dell’occhiale.
Affronteremo aspetti finalizzati sia alla fabbricazione digitale, sia alla virtualizzazione del prodotto.
Un particolare focus verrà riservato all’uso degli strumenti 2d e 3d di Rhino per la personalizzazione dell’occhiale, cioè per la realizzazione di modelli dal design personalizzato per forma, dimensioni, materiali,
colori, inserimento di dettagli, loghi, incisioni, fino a soluzioni uniche per la persona che lo indosserà. È il nuovo concetto di occhiale sartoriale, cioè di occhiale pensato come capo di sartoria, realizzato su misura,
per esprimere il gusto e lo stile delle persone che ricercano accessori moda esclusivi.
Sfruttando le potenzialità e le nuove funzioni di Rhino, verrà mostrato come gestire situazioni di progettazione complesse tra cui, per esempio, la creazione di raccordi per le parti critiche, l’incrocio delle superfici tra ponte e naselli, le forme ergonomiche dei terminali delle aste.

Riccardo Pietro Visentin é Creative Digital Designer: consulente, progettista 3d e formatore per l'innovazione digitale in più settori del design. Ha sviluppato una specifica competenza nel design di accessori moda e di componenti di arredo, affiancando e formando progettisti di aziende e di studi professionali. Nell’ambito del design dell’occhiale, ha creato percorsi formativi per introdurre e migliorare la progettazione e la fabbricazione digitale nelle aziende della filiera.

It is crafted to be accessible from all corners of the world and it aims to fulfill the demands of those who seek to exceed and lead in the field of multidisciplinary advanced and computational design. The Master of Science Degree is accredited by the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering, and Geodesy (UACEG) founded in 1942 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The program is also in partnership with The Microsoft Garage in New York, a hub for tech talent and community growth, driving innovation and inspiration.

In this age and time, we have reached a crossroads where technology can and will eventually shape not only our minds but our body. In this sense, designing the future entails, first and foremost, designing the body that will live in that future. Challenges inevitably arise and demand innovators and pioneers to overcome them; new tools and new technologies are required to materialize the answer; limits and boundaries will be crossed, and the equilibrium will change. In this journey, the compass will be a scalable notion of the human condition. Housing, transit systems, and the ways one moves around in the city, as well as the whole structure of the city itself, are essential aspects one has to consider when designing for this new reality. By changing the very unit the whole world is built around, the human body, we are no longer concerned with just designing parts of our world. Instead, we are designing the entire world we live in. It’s not a mere design process, it’s cosmogony.

Augmented Vision workshop results


Augmented Vision was a 3-day design-build workshop exploring mixed reality applications for design and fabrication using Rhino 7, Fologram, and the HoloLens 2. The workshop was an opportunity to test experimental features (depth camera streaming) on the HoloLens 2 and implement a method for fast and approximate forming of surfaces with arbitrarily complex topology and geometry by hand in augmented reality. This was achieved by streaming depth camera data from the HoloLens to mixed reality applications running on the HoloLens that can compare physical geometry represented by point clouds to target geometry represented as mesh models. This comparison was then used to describe changes necessary for fabricators to better approximate digital mesh models using physical material and assisted in particular with complex forming tasks that required multiple bends or twists in sheets of fragile and malleable material.
