Previous version was a bit slow, there are few items that has fixed in new version to improve the performance: Mesh had being generated several times when you choose a surface type from drop down menu or after editing explicit presentation.
Grasshooper component Attractor I Have my component, a rhomboid it has a offset and a fillet to it. I am goint to attach it to a surface, i would however like to add an attractor that affects the offset amount of the component relative to the attractors position, for example the suns path affect the componets offset openings allowing me to argue the benifits of an intelligent facade system. Similar to the image attached by Zaha HadidAny help would be greatly appreciated.
In this video, we cover the Spring Force within Kangaroo in a simple case. In this video, we give an introduction to the paneling tools within the LunchBox plugin for Grasshopper. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A new version of Grasshopper has been released. It has been over 6 months since... In this video, we give an introduction of Kangaroo, a plugin for Grasshopper developed by Daniel Piker.
Cellular Automata Building Propotional studies of a building facade. These videos shows an animation how to use the generative design methods in architecture and design. Methods: Synthesis, Celluar Automata, zelluläre Automaten, Parametrics There are different initial cells at the bottom.
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. With the help of a little bit of Data Tree / Data List manipulation, this should open up some new possibilities for iterative process modeling. The loop can be stopped at any point either by the user or automatically
Toni Österlund an architecture student at University of Oulu (Finland) ,revised my code and made some improvements,the script now supports non planar polygons for creating the cushion cladding system, the problem that the code originally had, was that I used a “planar surface” command to create the primary surface to extract the centroid point ,needed to create the cushion surfaces , these new version instead uses a “patch” command , that makes possible working with non planar polygons, the whole code has also been cleaned up and simplified. I also included here a simple Grasshopper definition that creates a honeycomb cladding which can be used to create the polygons for the panels, just one of the many tools you can use for design testing and integration into your workflow. Have fun and don´t forget to send your feed back.
You get the idea… Specify uniform vertical (N = iNside) spacing and radial (T = ouTside) sections for perpendicular cut planes. User defined vertical spacing and radial angles.
More as a scripting experiment, when i was mucking about trying to make the delaunay triangulation work in grasshopper i somehow found the wonderfully complex qhull library which i promptly set to push and pull to get it to work with grasshopper. As advised on their website, the best way to do it is to call it as an external program, which is exactly what i’ve done: no files are written or read, no dos windows pop up, everything’s smooth. Given that you don’t have many complex operations in grasshopper after the solution is generated, you’ll be able to handle quite an impressive amount of points (say 200 on my three-year old toplap) in real time. If you add the simple planarSrf operation, then say 60-70 and it gets sloppy. What you’ll need to do to get things rolling:
