Parametric design tools for automotive designers

16-17/12/2019

Paris, France

 

Forces v1.0 will focus on the application of computational design tools for industrial and automotive designers. As introduction to grasshopper and its powerful range of tools, participants will learn and explore texture "CELL" deployment over variable methodologies, learning parametric design thinking and shape analysis, deformations, form finding and penalization techniques.

Forces v1.0 workshop brings automotive / industrial designers the power of computational design and iterations as part of the future of design, creation of unique textures (CMF) and the freedom of design abilities never seen before.  

The workshop is tailor made for CREAPOLE automotive design students. Parametric design tools and approach can influence design strategy, style as well as fabrication.

Forces is a preliminary design design workshop preparing student for the annual "PEUGEOT design workshop" (4th year) held January 2020 with PSA automotive designer teams. 

 

DETAILS
A Pro-Beginner workshop introducing visual scripting with Grasshopper3D and Rhino3d, and parametric thinking for designers. Students will write and explore parametric definitions and will be engaging with multiple open-source plugins.
