Math plug-in for Grasshopper. ARCH470 Fall 2009 » 2c – Parametric Process. To create this model, I used a system of two grids.

ARCH470 Fall 2009 » 2c – Parametric Process

The first grid has 4 sided polygons at all the centers. The second grid has x-coordinates that are shifted slightly and and y coordinates that are calculated by divide the centers of the first grid. The second grid has circles at the points and then they are extruded to the first grids centers. Here are images of small portions of the big model, to see more in detail the connections, the two separate systems, the shapes, and the way they change in dimension.

There’s images of of the way I envision layers of the two different systems to be laser cut and placed for the physical model. I have changed a few things. This time by adding a series of values generated from the original grid of circles (seen at the bottom in the first image) to the initial x, y, and z values, a new grid of circles is formed, offset in increments only to coincide with the original grid again. Dürer’s Rhombii. Here I’ve come across to a nice website about the short history of tilings and tessellations: I’m especially interested in the role of Albrecht Dürer, who seem to pioneer some of the concepts of today’s emerging field of architectural geometry.

Dürer’s Rhombii

In this website Kevin Jardine explains mathematical aspects of some of the ancient tilings in a very understandable format. Here is a phrase from his section about Dürer; Like Kepler, Dürer was fascinated with regular polygons and polyhedra, although more for their practical visual possibilities than as the basis for mathematical theories.A large section of the Painter’s Manual is dedicated to practical ways to construct various curves and regular polygons with a ruler and compass. Kepler goes over some of the same ground in the first book of Harmonices Mundi but only includes mathematically exact constructions. The more pragmatic Dürer also includes approximations, including one for the regular heptagon. Grasshopper Shell Structure Tessellation.

The definition creates one and also has the option to create a grid of such geometries as seen above. The definition employs the Minimal Surface plugin for Grasshopper by Robert Cervellione. This object is used to speed up the process of defining the composite surface for the module. The same result can be achieved with the stock Surface from Edge Curves object in Grasshopper, but the minimal surface plugin gives much faster results. Both are included in the definition.

UNL Arch 223: Assignment 02

This assignment was to "remix" Gothic geometry. Not much conceptual criteria beyond that as the focus of the course technical process. I wanted them to focus on creating modular design logic with an emphasis on technical modeling craft, and drawing quality. Small Object Design:                          Virtual To Reality Two. Industrial Designers, Jewelers Artist, and Architects, are some of the professions utilizing Grasshopper and Rhino in their projects.

Small Object Design:                          Virtual To Reality Two

My interest in Ceramics has expanded and opened new venues for me to explore. I wanted to overlap some of the knowledge I have in Architectural Ceramics and merge it with creating a 3D print. I can produce a unique object which I can make a mould from to create multiple copies. As an Industrial Designer, I can produce my proposed structure to small markers and businesses. Small Object Design:                          Virtual To Reality Two. Tutors. Three great BBC documentary films by Adam Curtis which help to understand our unit’s agenda: From Ayn Rand and Buckminster Fuller and the birth of the Californian Ideology, Ecology, Eco-Systems, Systems Theory and Cybernetics to George Price, Richard Dawkins and the Selfish Gene, see how the concept of “network” and “nature” has evolved as an ideology through modern times.

All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace is a series of film about how humans have been colonized by the machines they have built. Although we don’t realize it, the way we see everything in the world today is through the eyes of the computers. It claims that computers have failed to liberate us and instead havedistorted and simplified our view of the world around us. 1. Grasshopper. Progression of a Koch snowflake as it is described by a recursive definition I wrote in grasshopper Koch snowflake in Grasshopper Application of the same principle for a regular tetrahedron made through a recursive hrasshopper definition..


Koch tetrahedron Paper model for Koch tetrahedron Paper model Below are two videos made from the exercises shown at the DS10/Inter9 Grasshopper class at the Architectural Association. The first video shows the trail left by points constrained by springs, end points and gravity. The second video is a very simple example of recursion using Hoopsnake byVolatile Prototype for Grasshopper: A line rotates on another line and this new line becomes the currrent one on which the rotation is done and so one and so forth.

It has almost been already a year that Toby and I started tutoring DS10 at Westminster. To do so, they used Grasshopper and its numerous plugins provided by generous developers. The possibilities are numerous and pretty exciting results can occur. Grasshopper. Triply Periodic Minimal Surfaces Minimal surface is an area minimizing surface whose mean curvature at any point is zero, and is often represented by the shapes of soap bubbles that span wire frames. Some minimal surfaces have crystalline structures that repeat themselves periodically in three dimensions. Jeffrey Vaglio.

This week our assignment was to: “Write a program, or modify an existing program, to create a two dimensional pattern and use a laser cutter to turn it into a sheet of lace.

You are also welcome to then incorporate the lace into a larger design.” My main objective was to try to familiarize myself and learn more about Processing, and Grasshopper as computational tools to generate my designs. Grasshopper code. Grasshopper Definitions.
