In this 4- hour 'Live Academy Class', Alessandro will teach 'Blender', modeling software for designers. Alessandro will share his screen on Zoom, using Blender to developing a design with the attendees. Questions will be answered throughout the class.
The class will be recorded and shared with participants only. Based on the experience of the AAVS Dubai 2019 organized by MEAL, this class will explore some of the crucial aspects in the design process of structurally efficient catenary membranes together with the studies of components tessellations according to the topology of the surface.
The catenary system can be simulated using Blender's cloth simulations, which is a non-destructive tool perfectly integrated with the Blender's mesh modeling workflow. Cloth simulations allow easy and flexible interaction with geometry making them a great tool for design and experimentation. Once the mesh of the surface has been defined, we will see how to use some more advanced features of Tissue's tessellation in order to create smooth components that interlock each other creating a collaborative and structural system.
18:00 - 22:00 (Dubai)
14:00 - 18:00 (GMT)
*The recording for this class will be available online for registered participants only. It will be available for 1 Month.
