Scripting in Rhino 2011



To be an effective designer today, you need tools to quickly develop your designs and accurately communicate them to everyone in the product research, development, marketing, and manufacturing or construction process.

Scripting in Rhino is based on a view of scripting or programming as a tool to extend the horizon of available design possibilities. The goal is to provide participants with the conceptual and technical tools to decide when one can apply scripting to a given architectural problem.

What participants can expect to learn?

Participants will be introduced to a set of strategies that designers can use in order to establish a productive dialogue with a computational medium in order to achieve particular design objectives.

The workshop will focus on Rhino Script language as the medium for this dialogue, and the participants will explore its possibilities through a series of guided exercises.

At the end of the workshop the participants will be able to visually convey computationally generated design ideas.

Workshop presenter

Khaled Abd El Gawad a MSc. In Information Technology from Institute of Graduate Studies and Researches, Alexandria University in 2010. In his thesis, two of the most reliable and widely used visibility culling algorithms–potentially visible set (PVS) and partitioning algorithms-are implemented into two different urban patterns – well planned and non structured areas. He had proposed a new software tool that helps in calculating 2D offline visibility for virtual environments. Prior to having his Master degree, he received a full 9 months scholarship to study multimedia in Information Technology Institute after his graduation from faculty of Engineering, Architecture department in 2004.
