Rhino Macro

Research

The initial design statement for these digital images was aimed at generating complex graphic representations of potential skin or structural systems using simple and easily reproducible methodologies.

In order to achieve these goals Rhinoceros 3D Modeling was used to generate macros from which curve, surface, and solid geometry was manipulated. The developed macros utilize four simple tools with identical parameter sets – copy, twist, move and rotate. These commands were then repeated until the generated geometries presents the desired model.

Through the use of these tools, I am able to create complex + unique designs which can be applied to a full range of scales and products. This exercise also helped further develop basic skills in Rhinoscripting and acts as an excellent introduction into the potentials for computation to build controllable complexity.
