Material Intelligence has an “Intensive Design and Prototyping Workshop” scheduled for August 16-20th in Queens, NY.
Judging from the sponsors: Robert McNeel & Associates, makers of Rhino3D and CAM, plug-in developers for CAM, position and rendering of objects in Rhino, along with several architecture firms, this might be more aimed at architects as opposed to IDs… But you know, materials and fabrication knows no boundaries. And hey, they have toys:
Participants will develop projects through iterative workflows with an emphasis placed on material prototyping as a vehicle for design innovation. The workshop will be conducted in a fast-paced and hands-on studio environment where participants will have access to digital fabrication equipment including an industrial CNC 3-axis Mill and CNC High-Force Cutter.
