Grasshopper, Rhino, Kangaroo, V-Ray Media Lab Workshop
AA MEDIA LAB : DIGITAL WORKFLOWS 1 / Kasper Ax
Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Kangaroo, V-Ray
Mon 10th Nov - 10 - 6pm // No. 32 Second Floor Back
Digital Workflow sessions focus on workflows rather than a single application. Session 1, run by Kasper Ax, covers advanced modeling techniques in Rhino, plug-ins Grasshopper and Kangaroo, as well as visualisation techniques in V-ray. Free-form 3D modeling with nurbs and polygons will be introduced as a tool for simulating objects and environments in a 3D modeling software, as well as an introduction to performance based simulation, where a design can be tested in a given environment. The visualization tutorials focus on the representation of the modeled design and will aim for the invention and build up of a distinct visual language (photo real or non- photo real) using various rendering techniques. Students are welcome to bring their own studio work as a testing ground. (A basic knowledge of Rhino workspace is recommended)
NB: Its a laptop run course so students will need to bring/ borrow/share a laptop and preload Rhino 5 (90 day trial available or buy at a discount from the AA materials shop), V-Ray (free trial www.vray.com) plus Grasshopper and Kangaroo ( free from www.food4rhino.com).
Those with Macs will need to run a windows partition or Parallels as Grasshopper and Kangaroo are not available for Mac.
