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.
VisualARQ, Flexible BIM and Digital fabrication
- May 14th 2019, 12h-13.30h and 17h-18.30h
- Showroom McNeel Europe. c/Roger de Flor 32-34 bajos, Barcelona
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 email@example.com to book your place.
- May 8th 2019, 9:30 am-12:30 pm
- Simply Rhino Training Centre in Bethnal Green
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: 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.
Symposium für digitale Methoden in der Architektur 2019
Hochschule Düsseldorf (Germany)
April 5-6, 2019
Come join one of the 6 workshops at the new “Symposium für digitale Methoden in der Architektur” in Düsseldorf, including Grasshopper and VisualARQ.
The VisualARQ workshop will take place on April 6th, from 10h-16.30h and it will focus on BIM workflows in Rhino and Grasshopper. See the full workshop description here.
An overview of Lands Design will be also presented during this workshop.
McNeel Europe will also show the new developments in Rhino WIP, including Sub-D, Compute and Inside.
The following video shows how to create a parametric truss with the beam object in VisualARQ. This beam object uses a style generated from a Grasshopper definition (also called a “Grasshopper style”).
Once the new beam style is created, it can also be referenced inside Grasshopper using the VisualARQ Grasshopper components, so it can be integrated into a new definition that generates a parametric design (the video shows as example an array of trusses, aimed at covering a roof for an industrial plant or a pavilion.) The values of that referenced beam style (the truss) can be also modified inside Grasshopper, as shown in the video.
This is an example of the power to combine Grasshopper definitions with VisualARQ objects back and forth. In the Grasshopper file, you define which parameters you wish to edit and how many details you want to put in the object. Once the VisualARQ style is created from that definition, it is just another parametric VisualARQ object in the list, and from that point no Grasshopper knowledge is required.
You can see other examples of VisualARQ objects created as Grasshopper styles here.
