    The webinar will cover the BIM features VisualARQ 1.9 adds to Rhino based on the following points:

    • Work with parametric architectural objects.
    • Generate 2D plans and section drawings linked with the 3D model.
    • IFC Import & Export to exchange models between Rhino and other AEC software.

  • KaAdLab shows a parametric house created with VisualARQ Grasshopper Components

     

    In this video KaAdLab architects show the use of VisualARQ Grasshopper components to build a parametric house completely in Grasshopper.

    They have used Rhino for the project site plan and the basic curves for the house contour and element paths.

    In the Grasshopper definition they can play with dimensions, heights and position of different VisualARQ objects such as walls, openings, slabs, stairs, etc, until they find the most convenient result.

    KaAdLab is a young enthusiastic architectural company leaded by Jana Kasper and Alex Adam, located in the region of Saar-Lor-Lux-Rheinland-Pfalz-Wallonien.

    You can see more videos by KaAdLab on their YouTube channel.

  • Advanced Rhino training summer course for architecture in China

    McNeel Asia course
    McNeel Asia and Shaper 3D are organizing this summer course that will cover the basics of advanced techniques on surface modeling with Rhino for the building industry.
    The goal of the course is to train the students in surface modeling techniques and how they integrate into the building modeling.

    The course will run over 10 days, full time schedule (eight hours per day). Students should bring their own laptops. The organizers will provide the necessary software and learning material to follow the course.

    In one the course sessions there will be an introduction to VisualARQ for students, who will learn all the BIM features VisualARQ adds to Rhino.

  • Rhino 5 for Mac available

    Rhino for Mac available

    Rhino 5 for Mac is now available!

    There is a limited-time introductory price (US$/€ 295) until 15-Sept-2015.

    This first commercial release is not the same as Rhino 5 for Windows, and it still doesn't support third party plug-ins, including VisualARQ. When Rhino for Mac is 100% developed and has the same features as the Rhino 5 for Windows version, our development team will be able to determine how much work/time we need for adapting VisualARQ to the OSX system.

    A few additional details:

  • Discover an astute seduction with Rhino Architecture

    VisualARQ analyzes a Rhino design: Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum

    VisualARQ analyzes a Rhino design: Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum

    VisualARQ visits an architectural project designed with Rhino by Trahan Architects for the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum.

    Pleated metal panels, evoking the shutters of the plantation houses of Louisiana, cover the outer skin of the building. This austere appearance does not even suggest the interior architecture. We enter into a succession of dynamic and sculptural curves, forming a winding path through the interior of the facilities. The inspiration is the river, which bends and excavates the ground before emptying into the nearby CaneRiverLake.

    The result of this architectural work was awarded with the prize of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to the "Technology in Architectural Practice" BIM.
