Data Driven Design

10:15:00 AM -  05:00:00 PM

Data Driven Design is for exploring new shapes using generative algorithms. Grasshopper® is a graphical editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. No knowledge of programming needed, but allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. A form created by a series of mathematical operations, instead of conventional commands. Anyone attending the shop […]

Exploring the Fourth Dimension

10:15:00 AM -  05:00:00 PM

Two and three axis CNC machining on flat-bed routers is pretty common these days. The addition of a 4th or rotary axis can open the door to producing parts “in the round” even when those parts are completely organic and asymmetrical. Join the UMN DesignFab team as they explore the fourth dimension with Rhino, Grasshopper, […]

Seven at the Center: the 2016 Windgate ITE Fellows Collaboration Laboratory Presentation

10:15:00 AM -  3:30:00 PM

The seven ITE artists awarded residencies by the Center for Art in Wood each have a variety of skills and techniques that they employ in their work. They will be sharing these with one another and with visitors to their studio. Anyone attending the shop demos must wear closed toed shoes and safety glasses. Flip […]

Surface Design

10:15:00 AM -  05:00:00 PM

The surface design area will be ongoing throughout the conference. It is a place where people can hang out, swap ideas, use a new paint, or try their hand at a finishing technique of interest. Participants in the conference are encouraged to bring samples they’d like to show off or finishing techniques and materials they […]
