In this global emergency time, many designer-makers are working hard to help the community. What has emerged is that everyone must do their own part. At this stage, valve prototypes (for compassionate care) and the design of the protective mask templates and related workflow for prototyping are being tested from home and in the Fablab. […]
These days I’m really regretting the good old flux.io and I really hope that soon returns in other guises. However, I have systematized a simple workflow that allows me to perform some practical interoperability operations (not live connections) between Revit+Dynamo and Rhino+Grasshopper. On the one hand for research purposes, on the other for personal curiosity, […]
In this short article, I would like to share with the Linkedin community part of the methodology that I experimented to solve some critical issues regarding the realization of the pilot LAB of the Apple iOS Developer Academy of Naples (University of Naples “Federico II”). Cultural background Today we live a Digital Age in […]
Even if Halloween has just passed, I would like to propose a tutorial on how to shape a pumpkin if you’re curious, take a look at this video as well: http://bit.ly/ParametricHalloween
Scripting as creative expression of the Design. Workflow developed to generate the Apple iOS Developer Academy “Wordcloud” (window-frame of the Main Classroom). The need to create an ad hoc script arose from the need to adapt
Development of a single interface for displaying metadesign suggestions guides simultaneously to the visual outputs of user feedback. A result that sets the basis for a post-employment analysis to be explored in a specific research.
This research describes the author’s experience in the design of the collaborative spaces of the Apple iOS Developer Academy (Naples). The intent is to explore the new frontiers of BIM using algorithmic tools to manage the formal and informative features of the project.
Procedure to make chairs positioning easy (and the scheme printing too).
main problem was preserving chairs orientation, to reach that condition I had to provide the exact position of the anchor points (4 pts for each chair – 200 chairs). At the end, by a very simple “hack”, I optimized the printing procedure splitting the draws printing layouts with ref. (plotter A0 roll – A0 max dimension fixed).
Positioning of Main Classroom chairs by a cross-platform algorithms (Grasshopper+Dynamo by flux.io. Designer needs just drawing a line to position and to orient all MC chairs.
Modelling a façade adaptive component by Grasshopper+Dynamo algorithms. Use of the two most popular visual scripting platforms in BIM and free form modelling.
Algorithms Aided design approach. Extracting garden contours by Grasshopper definition (by Kangaroo plugin), then importing polylines as DWG format into Revit model of polo Scientifico “Federico II” – San Giovanni a Teduccio (Apple iOS Developer Academy).
Model shared between designer (thesis’ author) and manufacturing company. By web application, Modelo, it’s easier than in the past sharing data model (and exploring it
Nell’ambito della progettazione architettonica ed urbana ricorrere ad un approccio algoritmico consente di migliorare il flusso di lavoro del progettista quando si affrontano problematiche da discretizzate in termini numerici e di indici/indicatori prestazionali e, più in generale, se la proposta di intervento deve rispondere a specifici benchmark progettuali da valutare e verificare. «La progettazione parametrica assume valore […]
