Video: Subdivision Modeling and 3D Printing in FormZ 8

 

This is a great webinar by the folks at AutoDesSys showing the new capabilities of the subdivision surface tools in version 8 and how they can get you to organic 3d-printable objects pretty easily. 

AutoDesSys:

In this webinar we’ll show the power of form•Z’s subdivision modeling and 3D printing capabilities by walking you through a series of actual 3D printed projects modeled exclusively with subdivision tools and features.

In this session you’ll experience:

  • Powerful subdivision modeling and how it can be used in your project workflow.
  • Seamless conversion of subdivision models to NURBS or Quad Meshes.
  • How the inherent quad mesh personality of subdivision objects lends itself perfectly to 3D Printing.
  • How converting your subdivision models to NURBS adds an additional layer of flexibility to your design capabilities.
  • The advantage of minimal time involved with analyzing and prepping the model for 3D printing due to the subdivision personality.

 

Join me on a Google+ Hangout on Architectural Presentations

Novedge is hosting a Google+ Hangout on Wednesday, October 9th at 11am as part of their "How to Succeed in Architecture" series and I'll be one of the people presenting. You can RSVP on this page and join us. The whole thing will be streamed live on YouTube as well.

What it's about: 

Presenting your ideas to a prospective client is a crucial step towards gaining new business. In this episode of our Architecture Hangout Series, we will talk to three architects about their different approaches to pitching projects to new and current clients. From using an iPad, to creating renderings and 3D printed models, join us to learn how to be more effective in your interactions.

I'll be presenting some new ideas I'm exploring for upcoming presentations including augmented reality, 3d printing and realtime 3d visualization. I'm not the only presenter either - there's Marica McKeel and Emily Bello as well, so I'm hoping to pick up on their tips as well.

If you want to be more powerful and effective in your presentations, join us to learn new tips and techniques to better express your ideas and connect with your clients.
