VisualARQ at the BIM World 2017 in Paris

BIMWORLDPARIS
BIM World 2017

Espace Grande Arche
Paris La Défense
Rhinoforyou stand (219 A)
March 29-30, 2017
9:00am - 6:00pm

Rhinoforyou will be exhibiting at BIM World 2017 in Paris, from March 29 to March 30 (stand 219 A).

Rhinoforyou will be presenting the BIM software solution RhinoArchitecture, an innovative and economically affordable solution that integrates consistently Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and VisualARQ. Winner of the PTNB 2016 (category "Building envelope"), RhinoArchitecture is the first solution to see the convergence of design and parametric design with BIM.

Rhinoforyou will also be presenting its Geometry Gym connectors (direct or via IFC) for CAD software (Revit, Tekla, Rhino...) and for calculation software.

Experts Francesc Salla, VisualARQ product manager, and Jon Mirtschin from Geometry Gym Ltd. will also be present at the stand.

Basilica Gospe od Otoka in Solin, Croatia

basilica_Solin_Vyonyx_10 fusion 600
The stunning design and subsequent construction of the Basilica Gospe od Otoka (Solin, Croatia) can be attributed to Vyonyx Architecture, an architectural design and research office based in the UK, Croatia, and France.

Vyonyx used Rhinoceros and VisualARQ to realise this non-standard design and maintain BIM data throughout the process. VisualARQ objects were especially useful in creating the curved walls of the Basilica, enabling the designers to freely explore window positions and dimensions without needing to reconstruct the model repeatedly, all the while automatically generating the 2D documentation of every iteration.

The project is currently under construction.

See more pictures of this project at the VisualARQ's gallery.

You can see more details at the Vyonyx website.

GIS Bucharest 2016
International Architecture Expo Conference
22-23th March 2016
Radisson Blu Hotel, Bucharest

GIS- the most important interior architecture forum in Eastern Europe is organized in Bucharest on 22-23 March 2016, with the participation of architects from 15 countries and of the European Council of Interior Architects, at Radisson Blu Hotel.

GIS brings up for debate the role of architecture and interior design in improving the quality of life and the way in which this can influence social and cultural environments and also learning and working environments.

Romsym Data, Rhino resellers in Romania, will be at the booth A7 during the two days of the event showing Rhino and VisualARQ to anyone interested.

New Rhino & Grasshopper book includes VisualARQ exercises

Grasshopper para Rhino e Impresion 3D

"Grasshopper para Rhinoceros e Impresión 3D"

This new book shows how to design new parameteric shapes using the power of algorithmic modeling in Grasshopper, through 50 guided exercises, including examples of VisualARQ and Weaverbird.

There is also a chapter for 3D printing.

The authors are Sergio Gómez González and Jordi Torner Ribé, (both professors at the UPC, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).

The book is already available in Spanish.

VisualARQ to Revit via Flux.io

VisualARQ to Revit via Fluxio

VisualARQ 1.9.4 includes features which expand the already stable IFC import / export capabilities of the program.  This means that through VisualARQ, you can import an IFC file into Rhinoceros generated in other BIM software such as ArchiCAD, or Revit, or export VisualARQ and Rhinoceros objects to programs which import IFC.  But are there any other options for interoperability between BIM programs?

In the Rhinoceros / Grasshopper Ecosystem, there are several third-party options for ‘real -time’ interoperability with Revit including Lyrebird, Hummingbird, and Grevit. These systems allow for the creation of a workflow pipeline whereas the changes made to a model in Rhinoceros / Grasshopper are reflected in Revit in near real-time, essentially automating the file export / import process.

Recently we’ve been watching the developments over at Flux.io, a startup born out of Google[x] with ambitions to become the defacto way we exchange building information data.  Flux.io began as a sort of ‘smart city’ web platform, facilitating collaboration between stakeholders of urban projects.  Now we find a different objective, focused on data exchange and collaboration. Flux.io offers data exchange plugins for Grasshopper, Excel, and Dynamo. The idea is that you can push or pull data to the Flux.io cloud, your new repository for design related data. With this workflow, you could design freeform building elements with VisualARQ and Grasshopper, send this information to the Flux.io repository, and pull it to Revit via Dynamo. Let’s take a look at how to do this:
