Rhinoceros – Modeling Tools for Designers and Architects
McNeel Europe & icreatia.es, Barcelona
Feb 9, 2016 – 10-12hAn introduction to Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, food4Rhino, VisualARQ and Felix 3D printers. Since its first release in 1998, Rhinoceros®, or Rhino®, has become one of the standard 3D modeling tools for designers and architects. With more than 350,000 commercial users and more than 10,000 schools, Rhinoceros allows to quickly develop your designs and accurately communicate them to everyone in the product research, development, marketing, and manufacturing or construction process. Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, scan data, or only an idea—Rhino provides the tools to accurately model and document your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing or construction. Its accuracy and flexibility makes it possible to students to explore and build their ideas without having to spend much time learning “CAD”. Also, any geometry created in Rhino can be exported to laser cutters, milling machines or 3D printers (like Felix 3D), and this is really what makes Rhino different from general 3D modelling tools based in polygons, where you can create great images, but without manufacturing precision. Rhino’s open architecture allows using also Rhino as a development platform: a free SDK, Grasshopper and a series of scripting methods (RhinoScript, RhinoPython) allow programmers of any level of expertise customize and automate Rhino and extend its capabilities. Today, at food4Rhino there are dozens of commercial plug-ins for Rhino for nesting, terrain creation, parametric architecture (like VisualARQ), rendering, animation, CAM, subdivision modelling, etc.
