2012 December 10-12 & 15 – 9:00-12:00 am CET / 9:00-12:00 am PST Lead instructor Giulio Piacentino – Assistant instructor Ilaria Giardiello
Through this 4-day introductory online class, we will explore the flexible and clear syntax of the new programming language of Rhinoceros 5.0 for Windows and Mac. Even without any previous programming knowledge you will be able to extend your Rhino and Grasshopper experience — learning how to script, automate and implement your design process. You will learn about variables, methods and functions and the potentials of iterative and recursive codes.
The class is taught completely online in 4 sessions of 3 hours each. The course is scheduled at 9:00 to 12:00 am for Central European Time (CET) and at 9:00 to 12:00 for Pacific Standard Time (PST). Please indicate on your registration form the time at which you would like to join us.
This class is suitable for scripting beginners: no previous scripting knowledge is required.
You will be able to ask questions in the class through a live chat designed to give participants support on theory and exercises developed during the course.
The course is tutored by geometrydepth.com and organized by Piacentino Consulenze Snc.

PointCrowdis a RhinoScripting workshop using the Python programming language that is available in the upcoming release of Rhino 5. In this three week mini-course, we will start with the basics of programming and move into the mathematics of space and Rhino's representation of geometry.
Automation:Increase your efficiency by programming Rhino to complete tedious drawing and modeling tasks.
Optimization: Create a better design product by testing and improving your models against physical conditions like light and circulation.
Generative Design: Work through complex geometric ideas using simple Python scripts.
Classes will be Monday and Thursday Evenings from 6:30-10pm in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
Please see some examples of student work from our sessions in January at MIT and June in Boston here.
Python is an easy and intuitive programming language which makes RhinoScripting easier than ever. This class will provide the high demand skills associated with computational design and architecture while maintaining focus on the principles of design.
