Advances in Architectural Geometry 2016, Zurich

AAG 2016

AAG Workshops: September 9-11-2106
AAG Conference: September 11-13-2106
Location: ETH Hönggerberg - Wolfgang-Pauli-Strasse
8093 Zurich (Switzerland)

Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG) is a bi-annual symposium addressing the community of computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers and architects. It aims to connect academia and industry through presentations and discussions of innovation in geometric and computational applications in architecture.

The fifth edition of this biennial event will take place in Zurich, from Friday, September 9 to Tuesday, September 13.

The AAG2016 workshops will be offered by leading experts. The AAG workshops are a great opportunity for participants to encounter the latest design and fabrication tools as well as processes in architectural geometry.

In most of these workshops, participants will be using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper.

The AAG2016 conference will have Lord Norman Foster and Francis Aish, Werner Sobek, Erik Demaine and Urs B. Roth as keynote speakers. Their participation highlights the importance of AAG as a central platform for the exchange of ideas in architecture and engineering, mathematics and computer science.

Francesc Salla, VisualARQ's product manager, will also attend the conferences to discuss about the upcoming VisualARQ 2.0 version with anyone interested.

BIMscript™ Hackathon 2015

bimscript_lena_3

  • Dates: 1-4 September 2015
  • Place: Beton Studio, 1031 Budapest Emőd u. 10 Hungary

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.
