RHINO 3D WORKSHOP: Basic to Intermediate

Rhino Modelling
Pseudo Code Method
Grasshopper Script
Rhino Output
Overview:
Are you ready to embark on a creative journey into the world of 3D modeling with Rhino? Join us as we dive into the basics of Rhino, where you’ll be inspired to create stunning architectural designs and bring your ideas to life. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll take you straight into live modeling the iconic National Congress Building by Oscar Niemeyer, giving you a real-world project to work on. This is your chance to master the essential steps used in Rhino for architectural and design projects

FAQ

IS THERE ANY FOLLOW-UP OR ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AVAILABLE POST-WORKSHOP?
Yes, we have the facility to ask follow up questions for a period of one week to the instructor and you will receive a small e-book containing basic steps of an introduction to Rhino.
IS RHINO A PARAMETRIC DESIGN SOFTWARE?
Rhino is just a regular 3D modelling software, which offers high degree of precision. It has better layer organisation and can be customised to a greater degree than its closest competitor -SketchUp. Grasshopper (a plugin for Rhino) is the software that handles parametric modelling.
WHO CAN ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP?
It is open to anyone. In the past we have had first year under graduate students, M Arch students, entire professional studios as well as seasoned professionals attending. No Rhino experience is required. We do recommend that you have modelled in some sort of 3D software before.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF LEARNING RHINO OVER SKETCHUP?
Rhino offers some key benefits over sketchup i. It can model true curves as NURBs curves, whereas sketchup only creates curves by breaking them into many tiny straight lines ii. Rhino has parametric modelling capabilities built in which can vastly improve the modelling abilities you possess.
IS RHINO USEFUL FOR STUDENTS STUDYING AT THE UNDERGRADUATE (BACHELOR’S) LEVEL?
Yes! It is a very versatile software. It does the usual 3D modelling and rendering tasks very well but you would also be investing into learning a software package that can handle more challenging tasks -like organic product design, extraction of fabrication data, urban computation, building microclimate analysis.
HOW DO I GET RHINO?
Rhino 7 evaluation version – a fully featured 90 day trial, is available to download on Rhino – Rhinoceros 3D (rhino3d.com). Alternatively, discounted student version and regular version purchases are available on their website.
About the Instructor:
Ashwin Abraham
Ashwin is a computational designer with an M Arch from the Architectural Association (AA) in London. The masters program involved interrogating new synergies of architecture and ecology through the critical intersection of computational design and fabrication. Projects are pursued by multiple iterations through hypothesis, material and computational experimentation, robotic fabrication, and evaluation. A key outcome was the Re-Emerge pavilion constructed out of steam bent waste wood in collaboration with Hassell Studio.
Since graduation he has worked at Mamou – Mani Architects, Gensler and KOPE AI on projects of various scales from parametric curved wooden interior false ceilings, computational plugins for grasshopper to generative design for city masterplans.
