Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project

It aligns with the "show me your screens" motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design. Directed by Jose Sanchez Contact me at : Bio: Jose Sanchez is an Architect / Programmer / Game Designer based in Los Angeles, California. Tutorial 6 - Brick wall. Introduction Result of this tutorial This tutorial will be about creating a curved brick wall using a 'stretcher bond' brick pattern that consists of bricks of the same size laid from the mid of each bricks above and below.

Tutorial 6 - Brick wall

In this tutorial you will you will use mathematical functions to generate the wall and will use the dispatch function to achieve the 'stretcher bond' pattern. The Design As said before, the task of this tutorial is to make a curve brick will with a 'stretcher bond' brick pattern. The wall height the wall lenght the brick dimensions the vertical and horizontal distances between the bricks Step 1 - Creating a cosine curve. Antonio Turiello. WooJae's Blog.

Interactive Prototyping is a process which strives to empower the designer – giving them the ability to build and prototype ideas in a more fluid and cost effective manner.

About this Workshop: It is without a doubt that the design process encompasses many things. From ideation, 3D modeling, programming, and manufacturing to material testing, marketing, life cycle assessment, and cost analysis; the designer is often confronted with many challenges. Prototypes give the designer the ability to test or simulate how a given set of parameters will affect a particular design. Prototyping is inherently iterative in nature and we’re constantly searching for faster more powerful ways to build better prototypes. Introduction to Grasshopper: Math, Logic, and Lists.

Clusterizer This definition groups indexes of connected points into separate clusters. It requires Sandbox & Anemone plugins. Grasshopper tools in C# PhD Thesis – Modelled on Software Engineering: Flexible Parametric Models in the Practice of Architecture. In my PhD thesis I explore the relationship between software engineering and the design of flexible parametric models.

Template:Grasshopper Data Tree editing. Introduction Data Tree Grasshopper uses, in contrast to a programming environment, no object names to define an object.

Template:Grasshopper Data Tree editing

This may sound trivial but it one of the most fundamental differences from a traditional modelling environment. In Grasshopper the object or objects are placed in a list. The different lists of data are organized in a data tree structure where every branch and data content of the branch have an index number. Data tree structure Multiple data will be stored in a data tree. Grasshopper. For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools.


Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. ModeLab. Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project. ARCH794 Parametric Thinking & Non-Linear Design. Beginnings: P2 – Fractal Screen At the beginning of the quarter I was interested in using parametric programs to design architecture with fractal properties.

ARCH794 Parametric Thinking & Non-Linear Design

Choosing where and when to repeat the fractal pattern, I could create areas of greater or less density to control light, visual access or even express load transfers in a structure. For our first project, a three-layer screen, I chose to go with a simple branching pattern using the “interactive split” and “triangulate” tools in Maya. P3 – Light Column Even though I deviated from the fractal patterns for the final project, I still wanted to continue to work with the idea of a pattern with various levels of density and transparency in order to control light.

The first precedent comes from designer Pierre Poussin and his Mitosis Courtyard in downtown Toronto. Massive Grasshopper Attack! Create Tool Paths for CNC Routing - Fabrication.

Click image above 2 watch video Autodesk is developing a new program, ‘Vasari’, which allows for quick and efficient wind and heat gain analysis.

Visari to Grasshopper

A common problem is pulling information across from these types of programs, like EcoTect, into a designers environment like Rhino and Grasshopper or 3D Studio. Without a proper SDK, or the understanding thereof, it is a frustrating and irritating process. In the academic environment this is an important part of any software package, the ability to jump between software. After one of our students asked how it could be done, I came up with this method (more like a cheat). The trick is to see the Visari animation as color data, the Reds, Greens and Blues.

Generative Algorithms: Lindenmayer-System (L-System) An L-system or Lindenmayer system is a parallel rewriting system, namely a variant of a formal grammar (a set of rules and symbols), most famously used to model the growth processes of plant development, but also able to model the morphology of a variety of organisms.

Generative Algorithms: Lindenmayer-System (L-System)

L-systems can also be used to generate self-similar fractals such as iterated function systems. L-systems were introduced and developed in 1968 by the Hungarian theoretical biologist and botanist from the University of Utrecht, Aristid Lindenmayer (1925–1989).

Grasshopper: Parametric CurvesThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves along with common grasshopper methods for evaluating and dividing curves. ARCH 598 Summer 2011information >> n-formations FABRICS // LATTICES // FIELDSThis course is designed to introduce and explore computational design, algorithmic thinking, and digital manufacturing–both: the larger ramifications that emerging digital technologies and ideas are having architectural theory via readings, discussions, presentations; and the practical application of these ideas and tools through a series of hands-on, iterative modeling and fabrication assignments.

TV. Grasshopper « Geometricmind. This grasshopper definition is to create a Hyperbolic tower with helix partition. 01 concept There are two features in this definition, first one is to use ‘function’ component to create geometry. The concept is explained in the image above. Basically, there are doughnut like floors through the whole tower, each has the same area. This was enabled by ‘function 2′ component that inputs are the area of the outer circles and the floor area you want. Enjoy grasshoppering. LaN / LIVE ARCHITECTURE NETWORK » Grasshopper Definitions. Digitaltoolbox. Tools. TUTORIALES. Grasshopper Modules - Proxy Wiki. From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book.

Grasshopper is an exciting and evolving modeling platform - the following examples attempt to develop a range of geometric examples to explore its form-making potentials. Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. You should have this handy for reference. Helpful Modules.
