Rhinoscripting Workshop in the Hyperbody Studio at the TU Delft – day03

9 03 2010

In a 3rd day of the workshop we focused on developing computational techniques for digital fabrication. Students were were writing different scripts for unfolding and numbering processes and creating rib-structures out of any possible surface. The purpose of this session was to prepare students for making final prototypes of their msc3 studio design proposals. At the end all the participants could consult their studio project with all the tutors in terms of possible applications of Rhinoscripting.

Rhinoscripting Workshop in the Hyperbody Studio at the TU Delft – day01/day02

5 03 2010

In the beginning of March (01.03.2010-05.03.2010) WF’s Agata Kycia and Krzysztof Gornicki (with Han Feng) tutored a rhinoscripting/grasshopper workshop in the Hyperody Studio at the TU Delft. The workshop was a part of Msc3 master program and its purpose was to introduce generative techniques to the students. Thus during first days we started with a theoretical introduction to parametric/generative design and introduction to Visual Basic syntax. Next we worked on examples of generative processes which can be applied for architecure and design.





‘Parametric Modeling and CAM Technologies’ – final project 02

26 02 2010

This lamp is a second project from ‘Parametric Modeling and CAM Technologies’ seminar which was finally fabricated and assembled. The idea of the design proposal was to create a lamp which starts from two double-curved surfaces. For this reason Generative Components scripts takes two double curved surfaces as an input and transforms them into mesh with special cuttings and joints in between. Final form was laser-cut out of 1mm semi-transparent plexiglass.
The project was done by: M.Brzeski, A. Rokicka, M. Rudnicki, D. Pędrakowski, P. Michalak under tutorship of Workshop Factory.





‘Parametric Modeling and CAM Technologies’ – final project 01

24 02 2010

At the end of February one of the projects done during ‘Parametric Modeling and CAM Technologies’ seminar was finally assembled and installed in the main hall of the building of Warsaw University of Technology (WAPW). It is a result of a fall semester master course seminar at the WAPW, which was tutored by Workshops Factory. Fabricated project was designed by J. Bartos, M.Piotrowska, J. Soltyk and A. Zajkowski.

On the 26th February (Friday) at 12.00 at the Warsaw University of Technology / Architecture Faculty (ul. Koszykowa 55, Warsaw) final review of the seminar and projects exhibition will take place. You are welcome to join if You are around.

Video presents fabrication and assembling process of the project. The overall geometry of the design proposal was designed by using Bentley’s Generative Components, which allows controlling form by a set of parameters.





‘Parametric Modeling and CAM technologies’ – fabrication process

22 02 2010

One of the student projects done during ‘Parametric Modeling and CAM Technologies’ seminar was finally chosen for fabrication in 1:1 scale (group 01: J.Bartos, M.Piotrowska, J. Soltyk, A. Zajkowski). 2 axis CNC milling machine was used to cut all the elements of the design proposal. Because of its lightness and rigidity PCV was chosen as the best material for the manufacturing.

We would like to thank NC.art for their colaboration in fabrication process.





‘Parameteric Modeling and CAM technologies’ – seminar at the Warsaw University of Technology

20 02 2010

‘Parametric Modeling and CAM Technologies’ was a seminar run during a master course at the Warsaw University of Technology (WAPW). Its aim was to introduce parametric software and the CNC manufacturing processes to the students. Thus the classes started with the theoretical introduction to computational processes in architecture and Bentley’s Generative Components tutorials. Later on the students were divided into four groups of 3-4 people working separately on their designs. The subject of the studio project was a design of a three dimensional installation in the space of the main staircase at the WAPW building. One of the main objectives of the studio was to fabricate one or two of the installations using a 2-axis milling machine or laser cutter.

GROUP 01 (students: J.Bartos, M. Piotrowska, J.Soltyk, A. Zajkowski)

The idea of the project was to separate certain part of the staircase area from its overall space. Thus the shape of the project starts from a simple rectangle and the gradually offers semi closed space at its lower level. Both global shape of the design and its local components details are parametrically driven by a set of parameters. The project is going to be fabricated (in collaboration with NC.art company) and installed in the main hall of Warsaw University of Technology.

The video presents the process of generating geometry of the project in Bentley’s Genertive Components and the way of controlling specific dimensions by certain parameters.

GROUP 02 (students: B. Cyruchin, M. Strzala, L. Maleszewski, P. Pachowski)

The concept of the design proposal was to design a lamp, which would follow the shape of the handrail, and would be parametrically controlled by the ammount of light it produces. And so the main curve represents the border of the enlighten area, and then the form adjusts to its requirments. Furthermore all the structural parts are parametrically controlled by a set of sliders.

GROUP 03 (students: K. Graczuk, L. Wawrzenczyk, M. Szulc)

The design proposes a parametric wall which can work for different types of exhibition (phtotos, architectural projects, drawings, etc). It is driven by a set of parameters like the overall shape of the wall, possible openings in between, sizes of the modules or thickness of the material.

GROUP 04 (students: A. Rokicka, P. Michalak, M. Brzeski, M. Rudnicki, D. Pedrakowski)

The idea of the project was to create a lamp which starts from two double-curved surfaces. For this reason GC script has been developed as a tool for conversion of two double-curved surfaces in two meshes made of triangles, that are interconnected to ensure stability of construction. Depending on version base geometry may be imported from external file or be generated inside the script. Three different iterations of the project are going to be fabricated in 1:1 scale.

We would like thank to WAPW (Pracownia Projektowania Architektonicznego Wspomaganego Komputerem – Katedra Projektowania Architektonicznego, kierownik katedry: J. Slyk) for their help in organizing the class and to all the students participating in the course for their effort. More information about final results of the seminar will be posted soon.





Workshops Factory tutoring at OSSA’09

20 10 2009

Workshops Factory was invited by OSSA to tutor one section of the workshop taking place in Poznań from October 17th to 23rd . Our subject was to rethink the relation between the last floor of Collegium Altum building and the eerie feeling associate with the space. After participants developed the idea they started generating a 3D model using Rhinoscripting. When the model is finished we will prepare PLT files and fabricate using 2-axis CNC milling machine. The result will be presented on Friday the 23rd at “Stara Drukarnia” in Poznań, Poland.
