New library of VisualARQ objects in food4Rhino

There is a new section in food4Rhino for uploading and downloading new VisualARQ object styles.

You can see in this tutorial how to upload and download them.

Most of these objects are Grasshopper styles (object styles created from Grasshopper definitions) so they are fully parametric. No Grasshopper knowledge is required to use these objects though.

We encourage you to share your object styles with other users!

Do you miss any particular object style?

Alan Gómez: “I came across VisualARQ looking for plugins that would help me integrate BIM with Rhinoceros”

Interview with the architect Alan Gómez

New Central Library, Calgary, Canada. – Collaboration between Snohetta, Stuart Olson, StructureCraft

His name is Alan Gómez, a design professional and graduate of Architecture at the prestigious Mexican university Univer. His academic training was his launching pad to begin discovering the world of 3D modelling for creating jewellery and, later, he began to take part in projects of creation, design and renovation of buildings.

Gómez defines himself as a professional with a very detailed style and, above all, focused on seeking architectural balance. His works have always been and continue being a challenge for him. With each one he tries to bring a touch of innovation and creativity to the world of design.

Today he works at StructureCraft, the well-known Canadian company that designs construction projects, pedestrian bridges, structures of heavy wood and wooden engineering. He is passionate about creative design and states that VisualARQ has become an essential tool for developing the construction documents successfully of projects of any kind, no matter how complex or extense they are. No doubt about it. Can you imagine why? Discover through this interview what his experience is with the software that has provided him with so many facilities.
