Dream Flake V2.0
Come start your holiday season off by generating your very own ornaments! DREAM FLAKE V2.0 is a FREE webinar for designing 3d printable parametric holiday ornaments. The ornaments will be designed in Grasshopper for Rhinoceros, mainly using the Pufferfish plugin. A variety of ornaments will be created concentrating on the possibilities of shape changing. The main goal of the webinar will be the design of an ornament that is complex in geometry but 3d printable as well. Participants will learn to create a Grasshopper definition step by step and utilize the parameters they build. The webinar will be approx. 4 hours long with live Q&A’s.  The webinar will take place in a Private Facebook group via Facebook Live and video uploads. Participants will be able to ask questions by commenting on the videos, this gives the webinars a more interactive community environment. Each webinar part will be pre-recorded and uploaded at the time of the webinar to ensure optimal quality and to avoid issues of connectivity that can occur with live streaming. At the live stream time, the tutor will be live streaming to summarize the videos and answer questions. All videos will remain available, including the live streams, for your viewing as much as you like, even after the live stream.
