Scripting in Rhino 2012



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.
