Hands on Architecture&Urbanism
17 April 2016
ALGORITHMIC ACCESSORIES is a workshop that combines algorithmic methods for 3D modeling with the digital fabrication of jewelries. The purpose is to produce various shapes through the use of parametric design and apply them on accessories in a way that allows their materialization. The workshop will go through the processes of constructing a shape algorithm, customization, 3D printing and fabrication .
Participants will be introduced to parametric modeling tools in Rhinoceros and Grasshopper, which will allow them to create and visualize unique custom designs and learn how to materialize them in a specially equipped Fablab. For this purpose, FDM/STL 3D printer will be available on site for all experimental needs. Further detailing and metal fabrication of the accessories will be also available. Participants will have the opportunity to get their designs manufactured and learn about all the aspects of the fabrication process.
For more information and applications:
One of our participants will be served with a scholarship. After registration, please send your portfolio /3 pages A4, .pdf/ and your CV to
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
– Introduction to Grasshopper and algorithmic geometry
– Creation and customization of complex geometries through parametric modelling
– Fabrication tools
Participants should provide their own laptops with the following software installed. If you do not have the software, trial versions and discount student licences are available on the companies’ websites.
