about WF

Workshops Factory (WF) is an association for spreading knowledge on digital paradigm in design and investigating possibilities that emerge from associative parametric CAD-CAM environments. WF is involved in experimentation with generative methodologies, parametric modeling and computer aided manufacturing, emphasizing their integrated use from conception to construction. WF is a flexible organization which aims to operate internationally.

Dear Monika Szawioła

I recently saw your parametric house designed in top solid. Very nice to see. I have been getting more and more interested in designing in a associative way. I have been hearing a lot about this top solid programme. I was wondering how you learned to use top solid? Are there any good tutorials? Which version of top solid would you recommend using? I have not been able to get a copy myself, maybe you can help me out. It would be great to hear form you to get some more information. My emailadress is siruge@hotmail.com
