UNIC Architecture invited by McNeel Europe to present a User Webinar on resent research and student projects in the Metaverse
The Department of Architecture of the University of Nicosia is happy to be presenting a User Webinar on resent research and student projects in the Metaverse, further to an invitation by McNeel Europe.
The webinar will focus on the use of Rhinoceros 3D and Grasshopper for the creation of metaverse content. The presentation will include a brief introduction to the metaverse and research projects illustrating the creative process. Three distinct pipelines (the “Voxel”, the “Polygon” and the “Game Engine”) will be presented and explained to demonstrate the various steps involved in realizing the workflows.
