Upcoming Workshop-Processing & Grasshopper

July 8th, 2013 § 1 comment § permalink



Architect & Professor Biayna Bogosian from Columbia University will be giving two workshops this coming weekend.

July 13/Crowd Simulation in PROCESSING: Originally developed for computational media design and interaction education, Processing platform is arguably the easiest programming language to learn and experiment code-based digital media design. This workshop will introduce focused use of Processing in order to simulate crowd behavior using real-time or simulated data.

July 14/Motion Tracking in GRASSHOPPER: Originally developed as a plug-in for Rhinoceros, one of the most versatile 3D NURBS modeling software in the market today, Grasshopper (GH) is a generative design tool that has been supported with a wide array of add-ons developed by an international community of programmers. During this workshop, students will have a quick introduction to the software environment of Rhino and GH and then we will focus quickly to specific add-ons developed for GH, such as Firefly to capture, translate and abstract movement using web-cam, smart-phones or Kinect into 3D geometry and visual images.

*20% discount if you sign up for both workshops. (400 rmb in total)

BioPrinting, a new wave?

June 10th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink


On June 22nd, XinCheJian & Swissnex China are bringing you:

Workshop and Panel Discussion on 3D Printing and BioMaterials


The new industrial revolution – 3D printing, is rapidly becoming accessible to anyone and everyone.  But with the growing revolution in 3D printing comes growing waste. How can we build integrated system solutions that favor recycling and sustainable, compostable materials (biomaterials) that still fulfill all the technical requirements to be used at the large-scale?

Join a diverse panel of experts to tackle questions of sustainability and ethics in the 3D printing revolution.

This event kicks off our forum on biomaterials and 3D printing. Discover innovations in 3D printing, biomimicry, and sustainable materials with experts and entrepreneurs, and interact with the creative makers and artists.
