More Info

This workshop typically lasts one and a half hours. This workshop is open to anyone interested in learning about digital design workflows and strategies for fabrication using Rhino. Participants will be introduced to the process of creating workflows useful in fabrication processes such as 3D printing, laser cutting, and CNC routing using the Rhino environment. Instruction and discussion will focus on the digital design process and how it relates to physical fabrication, thinking through prototyping, economies of time and tooling, geometric analysis, material selection, and generating production ready files while considering the strengths and limitations of various fabrication processes. This workshop will NOT cover machine operation of any kind. To learn how to operate equipment such as the laser cutter, 3D printers, CNC router or mill, you must sign up for one of the workshops that covers these operations. What to expect: This workshop will primarily focus on developing digital fabrication strategies and workflows using Rhino. While it will be based in Rhino, the topics covered can be employed using other CAD systems. Participants can expect to improve their understanding of the systems involved with designing production ready files that can be fabricated using a 3D printer, laser cutter, and/or CNC router at a general level. It assumes no prior knowledge of the fabrication technologies mentioned but any prior experience is advantageous. Participants can expect a hands-on and project based learning approach. Expected outcomes: - Feel comfortable working in the Rhino environment- Understand the basics of designing digital workflows and strategies for physical fabrication- Understand how to develop production ready files Pre-requisites: Beginner level experience with Rhino and a basic understanding of fabrication tools such as 3D printers and laser cutters. If you are completely new to the Rhino environment and would like more Rhino experience, please consider taking the "Getting Started with Rhino 3D" workshop. If you are familiar with other CAD packages such as Solidworks, Inventor, or Fusion360 you shouldn't have a problem following along. Participants are welcome but not required to bring a laptop running at least Windows 10 or Mac OS X and a preinstalled copy of Rhino (Free, 90 day trial available*). Instruction will be given on a machine running Windows. If you do not have a laptop, Inworks has laptops running Windows and the latest version of Rhino for use. * Rhino 5: This is the link to the evaluation version. Students can buy a discounted version with a valid student ID. https://www.rhino3d.com/download/rhino/5/latest Participants are required to read and sign the Inworks Terms of Use and General Safety Rules.  FAQs 1. Is there a minimum age requirement?Minors must be pre-approved and have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
