Program

This workshop will explore the design implementation of vector force fields, a native functionality in Grasshopper plugin. Forcefields represent the interaction of different gravitational forces and their effect on particles in space. Forcefield can be used in different fields in design from 2d and 3d artworks, to product design, to architectural and urban design.

STRUCTURE

The workshop will be divided in three parts:

  • The first part will provide the basic understanding for using forcefields to create different 2d artworks.
  • The second part will introduce more advanced methods to use forcefields to create 3d geometries, both curve-based and mesh-based.
  • The third and final part will explore the possibilities of using forcefields to manipulate a base geometry and create interesting artifacts.

Throughout the workshops, participants will be introduced to advanced computational techniques and geometrical manipulation to generate intricate complex artwork and artifacts.

FAQ

  • Are sessions recorded?

Sessions are live. Due to time difference or particular situations we will RECORD the sessions, but they are available only during the next 24 hours in order to follow the course pace.

  • How can I access the sessions?

Some days before the course starts, you will access to the course platform. There you can download documentation, files, go to the Zoom sessions and comment or ask questions using the panel discussions. The recorded sessions will be available there too.

  • And Mac users?

Grasshopper is almost the same in Mac and Windows, so it will not a problem.
