for the RoboFold interior panelling system

Book for 1 or 2 days.

The RoboFold Folding Simulation and Design workshop is a two day intensive workshop, exploring the new KingKong plugin for Grasshopper. The software simuates curved folding, and offers simple attractor functions to modulate an array of folded panels on a surface. The focus will be on building simulations of folding inspired by physical folding, and the comtrol of complex arrangements of panels, which will be realised with the CraftROBO vinyl cutter.

Day 1 - AM: Material Computation - intuitive techniques for designing shapes foldable by robots

Day 2 - PM: Folding Design - digitise fold patterns and use the KingKong plugin to simulate folding, design arrangements of panels with the attractor system, using differnet grid types, using different surface types, fill/empty feature, live baking feature

Day 3 - AM: Fabrication Data - refining the design for fabrication, outputing data

Day 4 - PM: Panel Assembly - cutting on the CraftROBO vinyl cutter, assembly of components

Two more dates in April and May.
