ALGORITHMIC ACCESSORIES V1.0
ALGORITHMIC ACCESSORIES V1.0 is a workshop that combines algorithmic methods for 3D modeling with the digital fabrication of jewelries. The purpose is to produce various shapes through the use of parametric design and apply them on accessories in a way that allows their materialization. The workshop will go through the processes of constructing a shape algorithm, customization, 3D printing and fabrication .
Participants will be introduced to parametric modeling tools in Rhinoceros and Grasshopper, which will allow them to create and visualize unique custom designs and learn how to materialize them in a specially equipped Fablab. For this purpose, FDM/STL 3D printer will be available on site for all experimental needs. Further detailing and metal fabrication of the accessories will be also available. Participants will have the opportunity to get their designs manufactured and learn about all the aspects of the fabrication process.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Introduction to Grasshopper and algorithmic geometry
Creation and customization of complex geometries through parametric modelling
- Fabrication tools
Participants should provide their own laptops with the following software installed. If you do not have the software, trial versions and discount student licences are available on the companies’ websites.
- Grasshopper (All plug-ins will be announced closer to workshop date)
Algorithmic Accessories Workshop will last 3 days, from 15 to 17 April, 2016.
Daily meetings will take place from 10:00 to 18:00 at Hotel am Brillantengrund, Vienna, Austria.
For attending the workshop there is no previous software or fabrication tools experience required.
All projects will be published and fabricated,exhibition will be organized at the end of the workshop.
Participants need to bring their own laptops or workstations.
Drinks and lunch snacks will be provided.
I spent a large part of my childhood in a jewellery workshop, this is where i first enjoyed the creative process so much so that it later branched into illustration, painting, and eventually computer graphics.
After graduating in graphic design, I freelanced in a cross-section of disciplines, from graphics to multimedia, only in my late twenties i joined the family business for the first time.
We are using 3D modeling and rapid prototyping techniques alongside traditional hand crafted methods to realise some of the most unique pieces we have designed.
