Event Description

This course will provide an overview of the theory and practice of designing custom surface components with the grid-based modeling plug-in, PanelingTools.


About This Online Course:

Students will learn intuitive techniques, inspired by paper folding, for the design, analysis, and fabrication of complex surfaces. Additionally, the principles and rationale behind NURBS will be covered, shedding light on how this particular type of geometry may impact the various design decisions you will face when paneling surfaces.

The course will last 2.5 hours including multiple open Q & A sessions. With two instructors offering guided curriculum and continuous support, it is our goal to provide you with an in-depth and personal learning experience. A video of the webinar as well as instructor files will be uploaded after the broadcast – all participants will have unlimited access to this webinar content online. Registration can be found below. We look forward to your participation!


  • Introduction to grid-based modeling with PanelingTools
  • Moving from paper folding inspiration to digital model
  • Paneling surfaces with custom components
