Jevero - Footwear patterns in Rhino
Friday, 06 December 2019 06:50


Jevero is a plugin for Rhino 5 and 6 that enables pattern engineers to create shoe patterns fast and efficiently, expanding Rhino with a new set of entities and functionalities.

The plugin acts as the link connecting the designer’s work to the production of a shoe:
  • Import a great variety of files, including Autodesk Crispin
  • Create all the necessary entities for shoe production: notches, markers, margins, boundaries
  • Develop all the different sizes with the grading funciontalities, share and export grading data
  • Export to a great variety of cutting tables, in their proprietary files, creating the most fitting configuration for your table
  • Calculate costs and efficiency of the patterns, with reporting and cost calculation functions
  • Generate reports for customs clearance and efficiency reports
With Jevero sitting on the shoulder of Rhino, the pattern engineer will be able to access all the information of the shoe inside one single file, which will contain 3D and 2D data, making it easier to share information reducing compatibility issues.

Jevero aims at the most streamlined and efficient workflow for shoe production, shortening time-to-market and making the transition from design to production ready model smoother and faster.

Are you interested in gaining Parametric competency to push your design skills to the next level? Are you ready to learn an exciting and powerful tool that will take your ideas and concepts to a whole new realm?

This Parametric Design Workshop will provide you with the necessary knowledge and ability to use Grasshopper, a free visual programming plug-in in Rhinoceros. The workshop will also include a hands-on parametric project.

If you already know Grasshopper and would like to boost your parametric knowledge, then you can choose Option 2.


  • Option1: General Workshop for Beginners - 16 hours: Starts Jan 18, 2019
  • Option2: Intensive Workshop for Intermediates - 8 hours: Starts Jan 25, 2019






Robotic Construction v1.0 workshop by DataForm Lab - London (UK) - Feb 15 & 22, 2020
Wednesday, 04 December 2019 06:04


Robotic Construction v1.0
Plexal, Here East, London UK
February 15 and 22, 2020

Aiming to demystify industrial robotics for construction, DataForm Lab is organizing the first of an upcoming series of workshops on Robotic Construction, to bring professionals in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry closer to advanced fabrication technologies. 

During Robotic Construction v1.0 participants will be taught a full digital workflow from form generation of a complex facade, to the parametric control of the robot and the fabrication of the individual components. Robotic hot wire cutting will be used as the fabrication method and the constraints and possibilities of the process will be investigated to demonstrate the key relationships inherent to material, process and form. The workshop will be structured in two days of intensive teaching and robotic fabrication, complemented by a professional development evening event and a public presentation and networking event.
