Generative Jewelry and Fashion Design are for designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper® is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.
Generative Jewelry and Fashion Design with Rhino are a new way to model where a design describes a change, it is the transition from entities to operations. A form is created by a series of mathematical operations, instead of being the outcome of applying a conventional command.
Generative Jewelry and Fashion Design are a "Must Have" complement for any professional applications or Rhino users.

Fluidic Expressions V1.0 will focus on presenting the fully manifested image of fluidity itself, its forms, and logic through Rhinoceros SubD's. The course will question whether fluidity is a material and spatial practice, how does fluidity form relations between spatial, social, material, and experiential forms? Viewing the fields of urbanism, architecture, and design as inherently interrelated with the fluid sensibility of the design impacting our perception of space will be explored and modeled with SubDs. Students will begin by learning the basics of SubD in Rhino and how to use them and how they differ from mesh and Nurbs topologies. From there we will use SubD to sculpt and manipulate form into beautiful fluid flowing architectures. Ideas about smooth connectivity, weighted gradient form manipulation, continuity of curvature, and model cleanliness will be explored. SubD is the surface representation of a spline in which they represent actual curvature, unlike mesh which is an approximation of curvature. Nurbs also represent curvature however they can be difficult to manipulate into complex freeform objects. SubD provides the real curvature advantages of Nurbs paired with the manipulation ease of a mesh.
