Habitação em Marte

O projeto HASSELL para um Habitat em Marte chegou aos 10 finalistas do Desafio do Centenário de Impressão 3D da NASA. Esta competição buscou perspectivas, fora da indústria aeroespacial tradicional, para explorar como um habitat humano poderia ser projetado e executado em Marte usando tecnologias de impressão 3D autônomas. A HASSELL fez uma parceria com Eckersley O’Callaghan para projetar a concha externa, que poderia ser construída inteiramente por robôs autônomos, usando o regolito natural de Marte.

CityEngine in VFX: CGA vai acabar com a arquitetura urbana?

In this seven hour lecture, Matthias Buehler discusses the creation of procedural digital film sets. He focuses on a practical approach towards efficiently translating concept art into a procedurally generated set, addressing the important topics of directability and designing the modeling procedures for a specific, shot based application. He continues with introductions to Esri CityEngine and NextLimit’s Maxwell Render. Further on, he presents an example of a near-futuristic Dubai-esque set in CityEngine, then continues to show how to create a second, similar set from scratch. Using a proposed scripted render pipeline that allows rapid design iterations, he ports all geometries to Maya to render the scene in Maxwell Render, using the automatically referenced final shaders. Finally, he steps through a custom PhotoShop action, to retouch each rendering to final quality.

Science we published the virtualcitySUITE 3.0 in March we took our 3D map applications to a new level. Now you are able to get access to your city model on all current devices. This has become possible by our new WebGL-based rendering technology based on CesiumJS. CesiumJS an open source project to create plugin free web-based globes and 3d map applications. The power of WebGL make it possible to explore 3d city models on the PC, tablet or smartphone. The Berlin Economic Atlas, which is based on our new vir

UFMG – Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais – Qual é o papel das universidades no planejamento da Grande BH?

Como incluir as universidades no planejamento da Região Metropolitana? A partir desta questão, o mestrando em Arquitetura e Urbanismo, Eduardo Memória, desenvolve sua dissertação na UFMG. Hoje, a coluna de Questões Metropolitanas traz as linhas gerais desse trabalho, que pode nortear os próximos passos do planejamento da Grande BH. A coluna traz, além do pesquisador do Centro de Desenvolvimento e Planejamento Regional da UFMG (Cedeplar), Roberto Monte-mór, os professores Rogério Palhares e Renato César Ferreira, além do pesquisador Eduardo Memória.

The ArcGIS 360 VR app allows you to quickly immerse yourself into 3D city models by teleporting to static viewpoints and comparing different urban design scenarios. These VR experiences can be easily created with CityEngine and are hosted on ArcGIS Online, the cloud platform of the global smart mapping leader, Esri. Rather than relying on high-performance graphics computers and cumbersome wired VR accessories, a simple smartphone paired with an affordable wireless headset are all that is required to be immersed in a 360 VR Experience. The app is available for the Samsung Gear VR headset. You can get the app on the Oculus platform by getting a promo code from us.
