Parametric structural design online workshop using SOFiSTiK in Grasshopper
March 15–17, 2021
10 AM–5 PM CET
Hosted on Zoom by McNeel Europe
Today’s building industry is increasingly complex and specialized. Modern projects are highly driven by intensive collaboration between architects, structural engineers and other stakeholders. Especially in the digital era, architects and engineers are separated from the building site. Hence, digital models are required to ensure a three-dimensional understanding of the scope of work. The challenge is, the architectural model and the structural model are not exactly the same.
This workshop will give you an intro into parametric structural design using the connection between the powerful analysis software SOFiSTiK and the nearly endless parametric possibilities of the Rhino/Grasshopper world. An emphasis is on exploring methods of collaboration between architects and structural engineers. It is led by structural engineer and software developer Andrés von Breymann and Andreas Niggl from SOFiSTiK AG, along with BIM specialist Junghwo Park from Umdasch Group Ventures.
Participants will probably be structural engineers having basic experience with Grasshopper, but others of course also welcomed. You will expect to learn and achieve the following goals after the workshop:
Day 1- Get to know the SOFiSTiK Workflow
Day 2 - Dive deep into the SOFiSTiK GH World
Day 3 - Shall we dance?

We are excited to offer an online comprehensive Grasshopper Computational Design Course for Rhino 6 and 7 in English and Spanish!
For those interested in acquiring Grasshopper skills at your own pace, this online Computational Design with Grasshopper course is for you.
This course explores forms and design possibilities with Grasshopper’s tools and their relationship to Rhino. Watch a few of the projects you will be able to create after the completion of this course! The class will help you improve your workflow by covering modeling geometry, data structure, general concepts, data types, data matching, lists, trees, and of course, tons of creativity. It will provide you with a functional understanding of Grasshopper and parametric design thinking. Grasshopper’s preliminary design and concept development advantages come to life in numerous real-life examples throughout the course.
This online course is now available! It is free for teachers and students and offered at a discounted price for professionals using the following coupons:

DesignMorphine has announced new amazing webinars:
SimplyRhino UK has been kind enough to share three videos with the content covered at its last UK User Group Meeting in December.
Rhino 7 – SubD Modelling in Rhino for Mac
A quick look at the new SubD modelling metaphor in Rhino 7. This is shown in Rhino for Mac but is equally relevant to Rhino for Windows. In this video, Phil Cook from Simply Rhino looks at three areas where a SubD workflow could have advantages over NURBS.
Rhino 7 – Rendering, Denoiser and Physically Based Materials
In this short video, Phil Cook from Simply Rhino looks at Rendering improvements in Rhino 7. This includes the Cycles Raytrace Render and adding Denoiser elements with the new Package Manager in Rhino 7. Finally, the new Physically Based Materials are discussed.
Rhino 7 – QuadRemesh – a quick introduction
QuadRemesh is a great new tool in Rhino 7 for reverse engineering and mesh retopology. In this short introductory video, Phil Cook from Simply Rhino runs through the basics of QuadRemesh and shows an example of how this can be helpful in reverse engineering.
