ON-LINE live sessions

After more than ten years teaching this course on-site, we offer an on-line live workshop in Rhino 3D CAD modeling, rendering and digital fabrication strategies for developing designs, models and prototypes.

Dates: January 14, 15, 16,  21, 22 and 23

Timetable: Friday 4 - 7 pm. Saturday and Sunday 4 - 8,30 pm (Madrid, CET)

Place: On-line live sessions, using our platform online.controlmad.com

There, you can access to the live sessions with Zoom, download files and program.

Course code: RH-DESIGN


Level  > Basic - Intermediate

Instruction Language > Spanish 

Who is it for  > Aimed to professionals or students in engineering, architecture, art, design (interior, industrial, product, jewelry, furniture...) and backgrounds related

Requirements  >  Zoom app and Rhino 6 or 7 for Windows or Mac*. We will provide you with files and information before starting the workshop.

                           If you do not have Rhino, there is an evaluation version for 90 days HERE (please check the system requirements)

                         * For Mac users, it is possible to take the course, although some tools might be slightly different or not compatible.

Sessions Before the starting of the course we will give access to our online platform, where you can find the files needed, documentation and join the Zoom sessions. During the session you can ask questions, share your screen or, later on, go to the discussion panels for further inquiries.

Sessions are live but will be recorded and only available until the starting of next session.

Minimum number of students : 7


> FIRST PART. Rhino 3d

The most important and with more training hours. Students learn basic concepts of 3D modeling, interface and how to start creating and editing simple objects. Next we will jump into the generation of complex surfaces with different modeling strategies and how to obtain certain information for digital fabrication. Although the basis of Rhino is using NURBS we will play and compare with other important geometric entities as SubD for organic modeling and meshes.

Rhino can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces, and solids with no limits on complexity, degree, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes and point clouds. It offers uninhibited free-form 3-D modeling. Tools like these are available only in softwares much more expensive. Extreme precision, design, prototype, engineering, analyze, document, and manufacture anything of any size no matter how small or how large. 

> SECOND PART. Digital Fabrication

We will cover most useful tools and machines for digital fabrication through videos and exercises. The goal is to know the main advantages, differences and how to organise files and information for each system for works in prototyping, architectural models, mock-ups, etc.  Particulary, we will talk about 3d printers, CNC milling machines, laser cutting, robots...

> THIRD PART. Parametric Design

Brief introduction to the plugin GRASSHOPPER for Rhino, a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. The idea is to compare Rhino and Grasshopper workflows and connections, and also discover the power of this tool for advanced design.

> FOURTH PART. Visual and render tools

Last part is aimed for rendering, 2d drawing, advanced screenshots, animation... Rhino render has been improved in the last versions and we will see how to control basic settings for materials, textures and lighting.

Is previous knowledge in Rhino required?

No previous knowledge of Rhino is required. We do recommend some background in basic 2D CAD (AutoCAD, Sketchup, Freecad...)

Are sessions recorded?

Sessions are live. Due to time difference or particular situations we will RECORD the sessions, but available only for next 24 hours in order to follow the course pace.

How can I access the sessions?

You will access to the course platform. There you can download documentation, download files, go to the Zoom sessions and comment or ask questions using the panel discussions
