Once a piece of jewelry has been designed and 3D-printed, whether it’s from one of our collections or a custom-made design, there’s still a lot left to do, like quality-checking, […] Read Article → Yesterday, Jesse and I took a hike in our local forest, the Middlesex Fells Reservation.

The Electronic Cocktail Napkin Project

Check out the Design Machine Group for exciting new projects! Authors Mark D. Gross Design Machine Group Department of Architecture University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195-5720 mdgross@u.washington.edu Ellen Yi-Luen Do Design Machine Group Department of Architecture University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195-5720 ellendo@u.washington.edu Project summary The Electronic Cocktail Napkin is a pen based drawing environment written in Macintosh Common Lisp.

Our goals are: (1) support designers making hand drawn diagrams and sketches, (2) support the management of drawings (notebooks, search, tracing) (3) support interpretation of drawings in context of the design domain Electronic Cocktail Napkin Topics Diagrams and Sketches in Design Trainable Recognition Parsing Diagrams Things that Paper Does Well Collaborative Design The Sketchbook Comments? NSO. Webinar: T-Splines and KeyShot. This webinar, "T-Splines and Keyshot: Modeling and rendering in minutes and seconds--instead of hours," was originally recorded on May 20, 2010, using T-Splines v2.3 and a sneak preview of KeyShot 2 BETA (the current shipping version of KeyShot is v1.9).

Webinar: T-Splines and KeyShot

The webinar was presented by Kyle Houchens, T-Splines trainer, and Thomas Teger, VP Marketing at Luxion (the makers of KeyShot). Free trials of both T-Splines and KeyShot are available.

Radiolaria lets you manipulate a web of connected cells to create a huge variety of biologically-inspired patterns.

Each object you create starts as a basic hexagonal mesh which you can change as much, or as little, as you want with a variety of tools. Choose a sharp, geometric look or a rounded, more organic style. Use attractive and repulsive forces to disrupt the pattern's initial symmetry, or give it a twist with spiraling forces. Click inside any cell to subdivide it into three smaller cells -- those smaller cells can even be further subdivided to add more intricate detail to your design. Your digital designs can be turned into real-world jewelry, housewares, or decorations made from steel, bamboo, or felt. O P E N S Y S T E M S. Generative Design. Geometry Gym.
