As mobile phones and head mounted displays (such as the Microsoft HoloLens 2) become increasingly capable of accurately mapping and interpreting our physical world, traditional paper and screen-based media for communicating design and construction information will become superseded by precise, contextualised, shared and interactive mixed reality experiences. We are already witnessing this transformation occur within industry, as contractors seek to reduce the time, cost and risk of construction by working from mixed reality instructions that eliminate inefficiencies, redundancies, impracticalities and complexity of building from 2D information. Generating holographic fabrication instructions directly from design models opens up significant opportunities for design experimentation, as structures with complex spatial relationships or significant variation in form, structure, pattern, material and so on become more readily described in mixed reality. This workshop will introduce participants to our platform for creating real-time mixed reality experiences within Rhino and Grasshopper using mobile phones and the HoloLens 2 in order to explore these implications and share insights into immediate use cases for mixed reality in AEC.

Workshop Objectives and Outcomes 

The workshop aims to give all participants a strong foundation in developing mixed reality applications within Rhino and Grasshopper in order to explore and prototype mixed reality design tools, workflows, fabrication approaches and construction logistics. After completing the workshop, participants should have a clear technical understanding of event based modelling in Grasshopper, how to leverage combinations of screen based and head-mounted mixed reality platforms and the advantages and limitations of mixed reality approaches to design and construction. Specifically all participants can expect to learn to:

  • Translate parametric design models directly to holographic construction information.
  • Build mixed reality user interfaces to control parametric models, customize design workflows and streamline sequences of fabrication tasks.
  • Create and detect QR codes for part identification, placement and tracking
  • Develop multi-user collaborative applications with cross platform support
  • Implement best practice for a mixed-reality-first approach to design and construction 
  • Brainstorm use-cases for mixed reality in AEC

Applications built by participants during the workshop will be discussed in short presentations at the conclusion of the workshop.

Rhino Level 1 - Jewellery Design | Certified and Official 3 x Day Training Class
 


About the CAD Course

This comprehensive 3-day jewellery CAD training course is intended for those who currently work professionally, or who wish to work professionally, in fine jewellery design and manufacturing, but who are new or nearly new to Rhino NURBS modelling software. 

While this course contains most of the same concepts as the Rhino Level 1 class, the emphasis in this course has been reoriented towards working within a jewellery design and manufacturing context, so the exercises and emphasis on choice of tools and problem-solving strategies have been adjusted accordingly.

All trainees receive an Official Certificate on completion and all courses are delivered by the most experienced Rhino trainers in the UK.


What Subjects Does the Class Cover?

The course starts with an introduction to the Rhino interface before moving on to the fundamentals of 2D curve construction and their use in creating cross sections for solid modelling. 

We then introduce the key tools of solid creation in Rhino one by one in the context of common jewellery forms—solitaire rings, eternity rings, bezel settings, claw settings, rubover settings, rex settings, pearl settings, and pinched shanks. 

Throughout these exercises, we will discuss important tolerance considerations for 3D printing models to use in precious metals casting. 

We will also discuss creating STL files for rapid prototyping (such as 3D printing). Various presentation and rendering processes will also be considered.
 

For full course outline and objectives please download the Simply Rhino Level 1 - Jewellery Design course guide by clicking here.


Who this Class is For?
  • Absolute beginners to CAD design are welcome on this course as well as those already familiar with the basics of 3D computer-based design using other software
  • This class is designed for users of both Mac and Windows versions of Rhino
  • Although the class follows a clearly defined structure there will be scope for trainees to discuss with the tutor how to approach individual work projects of their own

Our Classroom
  • This course is taught at our Certified Rhino training centre in London
  • Mac users are welcome to bring along their MacBooks should they wish, otherwise you are trained in a fully equipped PC classroom
  • To ensure each individual gets optimal attention and support, class sizes are never larger than 8 trainees

Simply Rhino Grasshopper Level Two Training

Grasshopper - Level 2

7 Week Certified Evening Class

'Advancing your Parametric Knowledge Data trees, Form-Finding and Meshes'
 

Objectives
  • The aim of this course is to provide you with an in-depth understanding of Grasshopper3D and two of its main plugins, Kangaroo and Weaverbird, giving you a full grasp of parametric modelling, form finding and mesh manipulation. Throughout the course, we will look at the underlying logic behind Grasshopper, including its complex data tree structure, irregular surface paneling, meshes modelling and genetic algorithm. We will also look at physics simulation and optimisation through Kangaroo, including planarization, form-finding and bending forces to reproduce material behaviour within the parametric model and create construction-aware geometry. We will look at mesh subdivision with Weaverbird to model tree-like structures. We will also show you how to develop your own set of tools through user objects. 
     
Your Class
  • Although the class is based on a pre-defined schedule, each class is always different depending on the audience and requests happening throughout. We will make sure that the class matches your expectation and ambitions with the software. Most importantly, we want you to leave the class inspired and ready to use and create with the software at all stages of design.
     
Class Prerequisites
  • The class is aimed at people who have already undertaken our Grasshopper level 1 course or use Grasshopper in their work on a daily basis. It is also preferable to have an intermediate level in Rhinoceros. Although Grasshopper is mostly used for design, the class is about parametric thinking and workflow and therefore is not addressed at a specific profession. Over the past several years of delivering GHL2 we have had architects, engineers, industrial designers, jewellery designers, contractors, project managers and artists attending the class.
