Due to strong demand, we are organizing a second session for this webinar. Times are more suited for North America and all applicants who could not register for the first webinar are welcome to join this one!
In the past few years, cloud features have taken a front seat within the CAD industry. The main actors (Dassault, Autodesk) are exploring cloud versions of their products, while other actors have appeared with native cloud technologies (OnShape, Vectary…). McNeel is developing a promising strategy with Rhino Compute and Rhino Inside, which makes Rhino a strong contender for CAD-based cloud applications.
In this workshop, we identify common design challenges and strategies for cloud-based parametric applications:
* Computational efficiency
* Lightweight solutions
* Data management
* Maximizing automation
Mastering these design principles in Grasshopper is the main goal of this workshop, which is targeting already experienced Grasshopper designers.
The participants first go through the process of creating and uploading a simple definition to ShapeDiver as a concrete example of how a cloud application based on Grasshopper gets started.
Afterwards, in parts 1-3 of the workshop, we provide advanced training for preparing and optimizing Grasshopper definitions for cloud applications. We make use of some popular tools of the Grasshopper ecosystem (Metahopper, Human, OpenNest, Squid, FabTools...) as well as tools included in the ShapeDiver plugin.
