Parametric Furniture Design with Grasshopper and Rhino workshop by DesignMorphine - Skopje (Republic of Macedonia)

January 27-29, 2017 from 9:30 to 18:00

SEEU Skopje Campus, South East European University
Skopje (Republic of Macedonia)

Parametric Furniture Design with Grasshopper and Rhino is an intense course combining algorithmic methods for 3D modeling with the digital fabrication of furniture. The purpose is to produce furniture using parametric design with geometries that allow materialization.

The course will go through the processes of constructing a shape algorithm, customization, 3D printing, and fabrication. Parametric modeling tools in Rhinoceros and Grasshopper will be introduced, so participants can create and visualize unique custom designs. Participants will have the opportunity to get their designs manufactured and learn about all aspects of the fabrication process. For this, 3D printers will be available on the site and, in the end, participants will have their prototypes 3D printed.

What you will learn
  • Intro to Grasshopper, creation, and customization of various shapes through parametric modeling
  • 3D printing prototypes
  • Visualization with KeyShot

Required software
Bring your computer with Rhino 5, Grasshopper, and KeyShot installed. (Trial versions can be found on each software company’s web site.) DesignMorphine will send participants the links to the required software, trials, and plugins to download. Please have the software installed before the start of the workshop. If you have issues installing software, DesignMorphine may be able to help you during the workshop.

No previous software experience required.
There will be 3D printers on-site for fabrication.
All participants who complete the intensive course will receive a certificate of completion.
Drinks and lunch snacks are provided.
Please note that places are very limited on a first pay first serve basis!

Early registration until November 27, 2016.
