Workshop: Architectural Prototyping with Rhino 5

David Tracy from the Rockwell Group will teach you how to leverage Rhino’s tools to unravel complex geometry and develop drawings for laser cutting & 3d printing.

In this Level 2 course, you will work from pre-built models of Renzo Piano’s Modern Wing at the Art Institute to explore how to develop drawings in order to fabricate prototypes of your designs.

Building off of David’s Schematic & Conceptual Design in Rhino 5 course, you will develop an understanding of tools and techniques for modeling complex geometries. 

You’ll learn how to unravel these geometries so you can produce laser cut prototypes.  Then you will explore techniques for developing 3d prints of your models via Shapeways.

Finally, you’ll gain an understanding of how to use RhinoCAM in order to develop 4-axis printed prototypes of your model.
