New food4Rhino webinars (May 2021): Procedural CS, Monoceros, Point Clouds for Rhino, and Notilus Nautical
Tuesday, 11 May 2021 07:22

We are happy to announce new food4Rhino webinars in May 2021:

May 12 - 17:30h CEST 

Procedural CS is a cloud platform for using computational resources. The system is tailored for handling multiphysics simulation jobs used in the AEC industry. Compute is developed to seamlessly integrate with Grasshopper to keep the simulation workflow as efficient as possible.

In this webinar, we show you how to run daylight simulations in the cloud from within Revit. Learn how to scale your simulations beyond your laptop using Rhino.Inside.

May 19 - 16:00h CEST

Monoceros is a plugin for Rhino / Grasshopper created at Subdigital for computational design using the Wave Function Collapse algorithm. It is used for optimally occupying an envelope with discrete modules, where the spatial relationship between those modules can be constrained by a set of user-defined rules. Using the Wave Function Collapse algorithm provides an innovative and fast solution to the emerging architectural problem of discrete aggregation for design, architecture, and urban planning.

The webinar will introduce the plugin available for free at food4Rhino and demonstrate the possibilities of advanced discrete assembly.

May 20 - 16:00h CEST
Point Clouds for Rhino

3D scans hold a wealth of data and opportunity for Rhino usersif only they could easily make use of massive point cloud files in their design workflows.

Join us to discover how Veesus is helping Rhino users in a range of industries work effortlessly with point cloud data. We’ll discuss some of the common challenges faced by designers when working with 3D scan dataand we’ll see a demo of the Veesus Point Clouds for Rhino plugin, which enables Rhino users to edit and manipulate point clouds of any size natively. Also, a brief look into future technologies that can help with point cloud sharing and collaboration.

May 26 - 16:00h CEST

PAZ - Archicad + Grasshopper (Beginner)
Tuesday, 11 May 2021 00:49

PAZ Academy (Parametric Academy Zurich)
May 13, 2021 | 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM CET

Join this 3-hour workshop if you are a beginner and want to be an Archicad user or if you are curious about parametric design and the Archicad-Grasshopper Live Connection. The skill level of the workshop is beginner.

During these three hours, you will receive a brief introduction to Rhino, Grasshopper, and of course, Archicad-Grasshopper Live Connection. During the workshop, you will develop a case study based on a useful daily design issue.

After understanding the basics and gaining some hands-on experience, Andrés and Nora from Paz Academy will answer some specific questions, building the community while having a cold beer!

Also, join them in a Private 3H Workshop. You can select your ideal date, time, and language (English, Spanish, German, or Hungarian).

Monoceros Online Workshop - May 27-30, 2021
Monday, 10 May 2021 08:21

Monoceros is a suite of tools for computational design using the Wave Function Collapse algorithm. It is used for optimally occupying an envelope with discrete modules, where a set of user-defined rules can constrain the spatial relationship between those modules. Using the Wave Function Collapse algorithm provides an innovative and fast solution to the emerging architectural problem of discrete aggregation for design, architecture, and urban planning. 

Monoceros is a plugin for Rhino / Grasshopper created at Subdigital and is available to download for free on food4Rhino

You can learn more from the Book of Project Monoceros.

With Monoceros you can
  • Design discrete aggregates in Grasshopper
  • Distribute modules in a meaningful way
  • Fill envelopes without gaps
  • Automatically set up your project
  • Design by showing examples
  • Have full control of data and assembly
  • Interfere with the solver
  • Analyze the result in realtime
  • Combine Monoceros with other plugins

Monoceros Online Workshop
brought to you by arx.ace on May 27-30, 2021

In four days of lectures and hands-on exercises, you will be introduced to a broad architectural context, explained the basics, guided through real-life examples, and revealed advanced concepts of a controlled discrete assembly.

Into the Wild - design competitions by Non Architecture
Monday, 10 May 2021 08:05

Nature is the designer of this world. Since ancient history, we have always imagined and represented nature in a great many ways across history, painting it and worshipping it. Today we ended up undervaluing it.

Architects and designers have control over our built environment; by designing cities and buildings to empower rather than disconnect from ecosystems, we can change our proximity to the environment and change our physical relationship to it. Rekindling our relationship with nature is a task that architecture and urban design are well suited to tackle. Recognizing and making decisions based on nature’s value will be essential for building a better world.

Bringing nature back into our cities and enhancing existing ecological zones can deliver a truly impressive array of benefits, ranging from health and well-being to climate change adaptation and mitigation. However, reconciling cities with nature requires more than just a scientific approach.

Into the Wild is a compilation of design challenges that aim to approach the element of nature from different perspectives.

In this scenario, Rhino software presents itself as a powerful creative tool to design and develop the most innovative proposal to submit on this series of competitions.

Teaching engineering students to use pencil and paper alongside digital design
