AUTHORING 1 / Intro to Parametric Design & 3D-Printed Jewelry
Beginner’s Workshop using Rhino, Grasshopper, and Shapeways
Together we will create an extraordinarily meaningful and beautiful small object using parametric design and 3D-printing. We will begin with a simple piece of jewelry (Day 1), end with an advanced object of your choosing (Day 2), and then reconvene to share our real designs and receive invaluable feedback from some of NYC’s most creative designers (Day 3).
Despite the indirectness of the computers and robots at our service, we will learn how certain specialized tools can help us transcend everyday products and mere customization to become true visionaries of our individual and unique ideas, otherwise known as being an “auteur.”
