Rhinoforyou, resellers of VisualARQ in France, is exhibiting at the BIM WORLD 2020 trade fair on October 7 and 8 at Paris Expo – Porte de Versailles in the BIM village (space J20).
The Rhinoforyou team will show you the latest news on the Rhino.Inside.Revit technology, which lets you run Rhino, Grasshopper, and VisualARQ inside Revit, and provides live interoperability of 3D models between Rhino and Revit.
Rhino and Revit users have been waiting for years for a reliable and fast solution. In this sneak preview video you can see how it works also with VisualARQ.
The integration of Rhino in environments like Revit®, BricsCAD®, AutoCAD® … allows a new workflow between Design and AEC (BIM) or other software. Using Grasshopper, users can create parametric models in Revit® as well as in other software without the need to learn another parametric or generative design tool.
Rhinoforyou is pleased to offer you your free badge. Contact .email@example.com for more details.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to work with VisualARQ railings in Grasshopper, how its components work, you will get to know some useful tips, and how to implement the railing with a single click on a given example. The video also covers how to create your own custom railing style in Grasshopper and how to parametrically control it.
This video has been created by How to Rhino, a YouTube channel specialized in tutorials for architects using Rhino, Grasshopper and other related plug-ins.
This tutorial (in Spanish) shows the main features of VisualARQ for modeling the Barcelona Pavilion, designed by Mies van der Rohe in Rhino.
In less than an hour, you will learn how to use the parametric architectural objects, and how to generate floor plans and sections of the project. In addition, you will see how to generate lists and opening elevations.
Even though VisualARQ adds BIM features to Rhino aimed at architectural projects, some of its features can be useful for the marine and ship design industry. These are some of the features that we would like to highlight:
Free-form parametric objects
The option to work with parametric objects, can be useful for some ship and yacht design models, where you can usually need to create curved beams, railings or walls that need to be trimmed or extended to Rhino polysurfaces.
The Grasshopper styles
The Grasshopper styles are those VisualARQ objects driven by Grasshopper definitions. This feature lets you create custom parametric elements. Watch in the video below an example of how a single Grasshopper definition is used to create a parametric seat through a Furniture object style, that can get multiple variations of dimensions in the model.
Since it is possible to create custom parameters and assign it to any piece of geometry, any data stored in a marine design project can be reported in VisualARQ tables. And the parameters of objects driven by Grasshopper definitions can also be listed.
With the VisualARQ section attributes, line-weights, hatch patterns, and fill colors can be assigned to any kind of geometry in Rhino when the model is shown in section. And this applies also to ship and yacht design models. In addition, the VisualARQ Section Manager and Level Manager helps you to show the model in plan or section view, and using the Hidden display mode, get the model ready to be printed to vector output and generate the project 2D drawings.
VisualARQ 2.8 is now available for download.
This new service release includes some new features and fixes most of the issues reported by users:
- Cloud Zoo support
- Overhead attributes. (Watch video tutorial)
- Plan cut elevation to show objects above or below cut plane
- Bottom control arrow to extend walls and curtain walls
See the complete list in What’s new.
This is a free service release for all VisualARQ users and works on Rhino 5 and Rhino 6.
- VisualARQ online webinar
- 19 May 2020
- 10.30h GMT+2
Cadesign base, main VisualARQ resellers in Denmark, organizes this webinar within the 3D Days Online event, where you will see an overview of the “Flexible BIM” features VisualARQ adds to Rhino.
You will see how to work with architectural objects in Rhino, how to produce 2D drawings and quantity takeoffs, how to exchange Rhino models with other BIM applications through IFC, and how everything can be automated in Grasshopper.
The webinar is free but registration is required.
To register, fill the form “Sign up for 3D Days Online right here” and choose the VisualARQ webinar option.
