VisualARQ presents a Rhino project: Kunsthaus in Graz, Austria
VisualARQ presents an extravagant building for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus museum that seems to float above Graz (Austria). In this Rhino project, Crab Studio has developed an innovative architectural design and a creative use of materials. The biomorphic building is covered by almost 1.300 blue translucent Plexiglas panels. The main façade contains a BIX installation, by Realities United, that allows to project videos and messages, acting as another exhibit space.
This remarkable building is physically linked to the one the most important old buildings of the city with a “needle”, a bridge and viewpoint, which connects traditional and contemporary architecture. (more…)

BIMobject® proudly presents the first BIMscript™ Hackathon event in Budapest, Hungary. Come and join us and learn to master BIMscript™ and the LENA solution for Rhino. The Hackathon will be lead by our core developers. You will have a unique occasion to learn from the masters.
This will open up vast opportunities for you to develop your own content for most of the BIM platforms with one single script.
There will be also an introduction of the BIM features VisualARQ adds to Rhino.
What is LENA?
BIMscript™ and LENA is a technology solution designed to streamline and speed up the process of BIM content creation. This delivers both an open and freely available scripting language as well as a BIM object authoring solution.
Powerful scripting language
BIMscript™ includes not only parametric behaviors but also calculations, product logic, level of detail (with several levels of complexity of geometry and geometry combinations) and includes a huge range of properties and attributes.
Import mechanical CAD geometry
LENA is an authoring app for the mechanical CAD system Rhino that will generate BIMscript™. It is a solution in which mechanical CAD geometry can be imported from most mechanical CAD systems, including industry leading products like CATIA, Solidworks, SolidEdge, IGES, NX, JT, Inventor and Pro E. Rhino is the host platform for BIMobject® LENA in which BIMscript™ is generated and works in combination with the modeling and optimization features of Rhino.
Generate native BIM objects
Operating in the cloud BIMscript™ generates intelligent, native BIM objects in a number of formats for the most popular BIM applications from Autodesk, Graphisoft, and Trimble -- and with the potential for more in the future. It also generates objects in commonly used formats such as IFC, 3DS, DWG and WebGL.
Connected to BIMobject® Cloud
BIMobject® LENA is directly connected to the BIMobject® Cloud providing a seamless workflow to publish objects. It includes a connection to the corresponding product information stored in property sets in the BIMobject Cloud.
Scalable and intelligent
The solution is scalable and can describe products as well as components in a very intelligent way, creating configurable objects with parametric variations and different levels of detail. BIMscript™ is a subset of the C programming language and enables smart objects to be created in BIMobject® LENA and then hosted and managed in the BIMobject® Cloud.
Easy to use
BIMobject® LENA requires the developer to have a commercial license of Rhino and an accreditation from BIMobject® before it is used. BIMobject® LENA is easy to use and within it all syntax controls, testing and creation of the generated BIMscript™ take place. The technology is freely available and will be enhanced continuously.
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.
