Volatile Prototypes / hoopsnake: Iteration in Grasshopper

More info at Github HoopSnake, apart from a legendary creature, is a component for the Grasshopper™ 3D platform. What it does in principle is to create a copy of the data it receives at it's input upon user request and store it locally. This duplicate is made available through a standard Grasshopper parameter output. What this means in practice is that it is possible through the use of HoopSnake to send the output of a set of components back to it's input in a looping fashion. The loop can be stopped at any point either by the user or automatically by setting a termination condition (the third input of the component) to false. With the download file examples of various Hoopsnake configurations are included.

Weaverbird 0.5.20 NewYear

Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in reconstructs the shape, subdivides any mesh, even made by polylines, and helps preparing for fabrication. Weaverbird – No expiry. For Rhino 4/5 and Grasshopper 0.9. In wb toolbar. Please upgrade to this version if you are using any earlier releases. To install, right click, choose “save as…” and then double click the file to launch the setup.
