Two Rhino.Inside.Revit online workshops, June 28–29, June 30–July 1, McNeel Europe




Two Rhino.Inside.Revit online workshops
Tutors: Junghwo Park, Long Nguyen
Host: McNeel Europe (Barcelona)
Online workshop 1 for users: June 28 – June 29, 10am–5pm CEST
Online workshop 2 for developers: June 30 – July 1st, 10am–5pm CEST

Since 2009, many third-party plug-ins have been developed to enable the interoperability between Autodesk’s BIM software Revit and McNeel’s Rhino/Grasshopper to various degrees of success, in terms of ease of use, performance (speed) and extendibility. With the recent release of Rhino 7 and the new technology known as Rhino.Inside, Revit and Rhino/Grasshopper can now work together more seamlessly than ever before. This has not only opened up a variety of opportunities to combine the strengths of both platforms in a flexible, efficient and responsive way, but also means that almost the entire existing ecosystem of third-party plugins for Rhino/Grasshopper can be used in a shared workflow with Revit much more conveniently. Additionally, the Rhino.Inside technology also allows (third-party) developers to further push the limits by creating custom their own Grasshopper components (via C#, and even Python) that can access the Revit API directly in the same runtime environment.

In this context, Long Nguyen, Computational Design Researcher and Software Developer, and Junghwo Park, BIM Specialist,at Umdasch Group Ventures, will teach two Rhino.Inside.Revit online workshops at McNeel Europe.

Online workshop 1 (2 days): 

The first workshop is taught by Junghwo and is dedicated to Revit users who want to learn about Rhino and Grasshopper or Rhino and Grasshopper users who want to learn about Rhino.Inside for Revit. Further, it is aimed at BIM creators, coordinators and managers who are interested in parametric BIM workflows. 
Participants will get a basic understanding on how to use Rhino.Inside, will learn about BIM Management use-cases using Rhino.Inside, and BIM workflows using Rhino.Inside and useful Grasshopper plugins for parametric BIM Design.
Course requirements: Basic knowledge of Rhino, Grasshopper and Revit.

Online workshop 2 (2 days): 
In the second workshop is taught by Long is dedicated to developers, Revit or Rhino users who want to learn about the Revit and the Rhino APIs, and BIM experts with basic programming skills. The workshop will introduce how to make a custom Grasshopper component that relies on the Rhino.Inside framework to access the Revit API. The goal is to foster a better understanding why Rhino.Inside makes the interoperability between different software applications much easier from a developer perspective (write and test code), to create C# scripts and custom Grasshopper components that access the Revit API, and ultimately to use the existing McNeel’s open software development framework for Rhino.Inside.Revit to makewriting code easier.
Course requirements: As the workshop is largely based on the C# programming language, a basic level of C# and plugin development for Grasshopper is required. To familiarized yourself with C# scripting and plugin development for Grasshopper, it is possible to self-learn using a free 3-day online course https://developer.rhino3d.com/videos/ (please scroll down a bit until you see “C# Scripting and Plugin Development for Grasshopper”). Even though this course is a 3-day course, watching the first 1.5 day should be sufficient to attend the second part of this workshop.

Online course fees:
Online Workshop 1 for users: EUR 250,- (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers get a 50% discount (proof of status required).

Online Workshop 2 for developers: EUR 250,- (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers get a 50% discount (proof of status required).

Special offer for both online workshops: EUR 480,- (+VAT)

Please note, your seat is confirmed only after payment has cleared.

Max. number of participants for each course: 25. If there is no quorum, the course will be cancelled 15 days before.

Course language: English

INTO THE WILD – design competitions by Non Architecture


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


Architects and designers have control over our built environment; by changing the way cities and buildings are designed 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 city 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.

AA Visiting School Khartoum

 

AA Visiting School Khartoum
@aaKhartoum
A Blue Dilemma (Dec-2021)

The AA Visiting School Khartoum takes place at the confluence of the Blue Nile and White Nile (the elephant trunk); a meeting node between Africa and Arabia. Khartoum will be the first stop where the Architectural Association School of Architecture will exhibit the School’s output. 

A Blue Dilemma (Dec-2021) looks at the often-neglected relationship between the unpredictability of altered passages of water and the erasure of heritage.
The School’s agenda explores the intersection of climate change and heritage whilst reflecting on new modes of representation. The continuous reshaping of the flow of rivers is both a cause and effect of human patterns of behaviour that have reshaped settlements at its shoreline throughout history. Today the course of the Nile is being altered once more through new urban developments and climate change posing a threat to sites adjacent to its riverbed. The School studies the challenges posed by climate change through the chosen site at Meroe and the ongoing alterations of water passages. Participants will engage with invited anthropologists, architects, artists, bioarchaeologist, community initiatives, and historians through lectures, seminars, studios and workshops.

The School is structured around three modules:
  • First module: explores various aspects of mapping climate change.
  • Second module: delves into the intersection of climate change and heritage at the site to draw lessons from historical cycles of environmental challenges.
  • Third module: is oriented towards the production of models and drawings that explore the materiality of the site.
Rhino and Grasshopper will be used during the latter module.

SectionTools for Rhino7 – New Release

 

A new version of the SectionTools plugin for Rhino 7 for Windows is now available.  You can install using the PackageManager command in Rhino (then search for and install SectionTools). New in this version:

  • Added stExtractSections to extract sections’ curves, caps and slices.
  • Added stSaveSectionsView to save sections to NamedViews and NamedCPlanes.
  • Added stLockSections to lock all sections and hide their ClippingPlanes.
  • Added a new option to stViewSections called ClearOtherSections to remove other sections from the view.
  • Updated the stMake2D command to use the HiddenLineDrawing SDK functions to create parallel projections of sections and the background objects and organize in sublayers with the section name indicated. You can change the attributes of the layers, but need to keep the names to be able to replace content when rerunning the command on the same section to update the result.
  • Added support to sectioning the new SubD objects introduced in Rhino7.
  • Changed the Attribute option in stCreate command to be either “ByLayer” (use the section layer attributes) or “FromSource” (use source object attribute if assigned by object, or the source layer attributes if assigned by layer).
  • The LoadFromFile option is now a one-shot option in stCreate command.
  • The stCreate preview for the section line placement now shows a line with an arrow to indicate the up direction of sections.
  • Added options to stNestLayout command to place the tags inside or outside the layout and to use either a Dot or Text for the label.
  • Whenever sections need to be selected, it is now possible to press “Enter” to select all sections instead of using the UI to select all.
  • Added support to stViewSections to select the active viewport when pressing Enter, instead of requiring to select a view.
  • Fixed a bug when sectioning with tight BoundingBox and that sometimes resulted in incomplete intersections.
  • Updated the menu and toolbars to include the new commands (toolbars installed with the plugin and should be accessible through the Toolbar command)
  • Updated the SectionTools Primer with the new changes.

AAG 2020 has published its online conference schedule. Each keynote presentation will be streamed live on the WorkAdventure platform for about 30-40 minutes, followed by discussion in a moderated virtual session room.

Keynote Lectures April 27-29

  • Design Philosophy, Process and Transformation. Stacy Eisenberg and Tristan Israël, AJN, will present how the collaboration between architects, engineers, and builders successfully transforms each strong project narrative into a challenging building due to the ingenuity of the architectural design process and the research and development in advanced fabrication technologies. Eisenberg and Israël will illustrate AJN’s expertise through three projects: The Louvre museum in Abu Dhabi, The Duo office towers in Paris and Matarazzo, The Torre Mata Atlantica tower in Sao Paulo.
  • Tri-Axial Weaving with Curved Strips to Generate Complex Structure. Tri-axial weaving has long been used to create curved structures from straight/flat ribbons. Weavers typically introduce discrete topological defects to produce 3D shapes, albeit with faceted surfaces. Pedro Reis, EPF, will show how, by tuning the ribbons’ in-plane curvature, the weave’s integrated Gaussian curvature can vary continuously, which is not feasible using traditional techniques. This geometry-driven nature of tri-axial weaving can be leveraged to design a set of ribbon profiles to weave various structures.
  • Advances in Architectural Origami. When we compress a sheet of paper, it self-organizes into repeated patterns similar to origami. In this talk, Tomohiro Tachi, Tokyo University, will talk about the geometry behind the art of origami that may lead to structural innovations. He will also showcase recent fun collaborations between art, science, engineering, and design. 
  • Roadmapping and Architectural Complexity. To achieve a net zero world with 600,000,000 existing buildings, we must automate. This talk by David Jason Gerber, USC, reflects on the opportunity for architectural geometry to accelerate the adoption of goal-driven computation to enable a net zero built environment.
  • Build Better Models! Fabian Scheurer, Design-to-Production, discusses why most of our digital building models are not ripe for digital fabrication but for disposal, how we need to re-think our methods to create usable digital twins and why the tail of the building process needs to take the lead and wag the dog.
  • BioSynthetic Architecture: Transdisciplinary Design Research. Jenny Sabin, Cornell University, will present ongoing trans-disciplinary research and design spanning across the fields of cell biology, materials science, physics, fiber science, fashion, mechanical and structural engineering, and architecture.
  • Geometry / Material / Labour. This keynote reflects on the relationship between geometry and materiality, geometry and economy (material, energy, and labour), geometry and know-how. Bernard Vaudeville, T/E/S/S, proposes to illustrate this using manufacturing processes and built projects. Notably, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, the Parc des Ateliers (Arch: F. Gehry) in Arles and the Euplectella, a curious serpentine metal tunnel.

See the full AAG 2020 Conference Programme.

Workshop seats are selling fast, with some already fully booked. Two featured workshops are:

  • WS 2 Complex Collapsible Structures by Viktoria Sandor and Matthew Tam (Karamba 3D). During this workshop, participants familiar with parametric design thinking will design and classify small-scale spatial elements by aggregating and optimizing a basic rigid foldable tubular module. More info.
  • WS 5 Collaborative Choreographies by Jan Philipp Drude (University of Hanover) and Andrea Rossi (University of Kassel). The workshop’s overall goal is to openly discuss the possibilities of collaborative design scenarios in architecture, as well as practically play them out within a VR design ecosystem. More info.

“Mastering Surfacing in Rhino” Webinar

Rhino3D.Education invites you to a webinar led by Alejandro Zapata, author of “Mastering Surfacing in Rhino.”


Join us to learn more about his book, written for anyone who wants to improve their surfacing skills and achieve curvature continuity surfaces.


Alejandro is an Authorized Rhino Trainer (ART), and a self-taught 3D artist specialized in inorganic modeling with years of visualization experience for architects, civil engineers, and industrial designers. Since his beginnings in CG was passionate about car modeling, always looking to excel in his technique. He couldn’t find information about it, so this reason drives him to work for years to provide quality material and position himself as a reference in the field of surface modeling, especially for the Spanish-speaking market. His book, “Mastering Surfacing in Rhino,” seeks to fill this void.


The webinar will be in English. 

You can purchase the book here!

Time: 12:30 pm (EST)
Open to the public with prior registration. You will receive an email with the webinar’s link on the day of the event.
