Webinar: Flexible BIM workflow with Rhino, VisualARQ and Grasshopper

Flexible BIM workflow with Rhino, VisualARQ and Grasshopper
Wednesday, May 15th, 11am PDT

Sign up for this free webinar organized by Novedge to get to know an overview of VisualARQ “Flexible BIM” features it adds to Rhino and Grasshopper.

You will learn:

  • How to work with smart architectural objects and create new custom parametric objects with Grasshopper.
  • How to automate design workflows using BIM elements with the VisualARQ Grasshopper components.
  • How to generate dynamic 2D drawings from a 3D model.
  • How to exchange models between Rhino and other AEC software with the IFC import and export features.
  • How to add custom data to geometry, generate BIM reports and export this data as IFC Properties.

MIAUHAUS Workshops | Grasshopper for Architectural Projects and Project Workflows (COAM, Madrid)


Grasshopper for Architectural Projects | May 6-9, 2019

Project Workflows | June 3-4 and June 10-11, 2019

MIAUHAUS and COAM are organizing two workshops to explore different types of workflow for the research, realization, and presentation of Architectural Projects.

VisualARQ will take part of the tools used in these workshops, mostly for its capabilities to export Rhino models to Revit through IFC.

Join Sergio del Castillo Tello, architect, computational designer, MIAUHAUS member and Authorized Rhino Trainer and learn how to use Rhinoceros and Grasshopper to improve your current workflow.

Free seminar of Flexible BIM and digital fabrication in Barcelona

VisualARQ, Flexible BIM and Digital fabrication

Asuni and icreatia will show the process to develop a BIM model and bring it into a 3D physical model printed with a 3D printer.

Day to day architects have a higher need to generate more complex and detailed 3D models. The traditional techniques have been always too slow and expensive.
The goal of this seminar is to show how to model a project of architecture using the “Flexible BIM” technology with Rhino, VisualARQ and Grasshopper, and bring it into a 3D physical model with the Felix Pro 3D printer.

The seminar is aimed at architects, engineers, students and professionals of construction. It will be held in two identical sessions, at 12h and 17h, of 90 minutes of duration.

These sessions will take place within the “Setmana de l’arquitectura 2019” (Architecture week 2019) event in Barcelona.
This event, organized by Barcelona City Council, the Catalan Architects’ Association (COAC) and the Mies van der Rohe Foundation with Barcelona Building Construmat and ArquinFAD, is a joint initiative that will be taking place at several venues across the city of Barcelona from 9 to 19 May 2019.

During those days, Barcelona will become the center of a wide range of activities relating to the world of architecture and the city, beyond disciplinary and territorial boundaries. On the hundred-year anniversary of the foundation of the Bauhaus school of design and architecture, this year’s edition will emphasize the legacy of a variety of early 20th-century architectural movements to stimulate reflection on the built environments of cities and their value by disseminating architectural activities, knowledge, experience and discussion.

The seminar is free but seats are limited. Please write to fsalla@asuni.com to book your place.

“BIM workflow in Rhino with VisualARQ and Grasshopper” workshop in London

VisualARQ Workshop banner. BIM Workflow with Rhino, VisualARQ and Grasshopper

Workshop: BIM workflow in Rhino with VisualARQ and Grasshopper

Simply Rhino UK organizes a free of charge workshop, using Rhino for BIM Model Creation.

This 3-hour workshop will introduce you to the main tools VisualARQ adds to Rhino for developing an architectural project inside Rhino, producing the 2D documentation drawings and delivering a BIM model for other AEC applications.
Francesc Salla, VisualARQ’s product manager, will be the trainer of this workshop.

You will learn:

  • How to work with parametric architectural objects
  • The Level and Section manager that let you work and organize the model at different levels and sections
  • How to produce 2D drawings from the 3D model
  • How to generate dynamic BIM objects driven by Grasshopper (also known as “VisualARQ Grasshopper styles”) with unlimited options of design
  • How to automate many modelling tasks through the VisualARQ components built for Grasshopper 3D
  • How to add custom data to geometry and list in schedules
  • How to deliver BIM models and collaborate with other tools through the IFC import / export capabilities

BIM Software Contest #2 in Rome

BIM Software Contest #2: Ville Savoye

Casa dell’Architettura-Piazza Manfredo Fanti 47, Roma
April 4, 2019, 2.00 pm – 7.40 pm

The Ordine Architetti P.P.C. di Roma e Provincia and the scientific coordiators, Arch. Marco Capobianchi, Arch. Marco Amadio and tutor Arch. Nives Barranca, organize the 2nd edition of the BIM Software Contest in Rome.

Giuseppe Massoni (McNeel Europe) and Ramón Cárceles (Asuni) will introduce Rhino, Grasshopper and VisualARQ at 4.20 pm session, showing their potential to develop the Ville Savoye project.

The BIM Software Contest events are born with the aim of providing architects with a clear overview of the differences and potentialities of the individual programs. The professional will thus be able to understand the philosophy of the products and choose the most suitable instrument for his work, his objectives and his budget.

Each event has an organizational structure that assigns all the software the same space and the same theme to be developed live: the Ville Savoye by Le Corbusier. In particular, from each software the following tasks will be developed:

  • Architectural and structural modeling
  • Extraction of quantities and schedules
  • Modeling verification (model check, code check)
  • Output and pagination (views, sections and rendering)

The Ville Savoye project was actually selected by Asuni as a good example to learn VisualARQ and you can find the full video tutorial here.
