Learning to use Rhino - Tutorials Collection. All Development Tools Take a quick look at the new features and improvements in Rhinoceros 5. (25 minutes) RhinoScript RhinoScript is a scripting tool based on Microsoft's VBScript language.

With RhinoScript, you can quickly add functionality to Rhino, or automate repetitive tasks. Organicités Piraeus Tower. So far my project was more about the deformation process of the initial Piraeus Tower’s skin.

Even though – while looking at the project’s representation – the structure seems to be a very important part, I somehow neglected it so far. This led to a rather weak structural solution which rises a lot of problems and questions. As a next step I’ll try to find a more sophisticated engine driven solution for the tower’s structure. For that reason, I was researching in different structural optimisation processes. I haven’t yet chosen something for my project but it informs me what possibilities there are and what potential solutions I’d be able to create in the further development.

There are two main optimisation processes, which are the adaptive subdivision and the surface relaxation.

This paper is an abstract of our research that we made for the Design & Technical European Group in Arup.

We are now working on a second phase in which will be involved construction companies to test and validate the method. This study does not revolutionize the current paneling methods, but the approach is quite new. In the continuing research of complex and original architectural shapes, at certain point, in order to help the construction process and to maintain the costs on a reasonable level, we have to follow two different ways. The first approach is the geometry rationalization, by using primitive shapes that approximate the original architecture. In this way, we can obtain a simple and ordinary paneling of the building envelope, but we can lose the fidelity compared on the original shape and we fall short on client/architect expectations.

Hop between Grasshopper and Revit. No software does it all, which is why interoperability has become such a hot topic.

Hop between Grasshopper and Revit

In this How To, I’ll show you how the power of Grasshopper’s parametric modeling tools and customizability can be leveraged to get tons of information into Revit. Furthermore, we’ll put that information into Revit’s native language so we can use and manipulate it. Grasshopper – Revit User Group. 0095b6. [FORMul[a]RCH] Karamba 3d. Delaunay mesh. Grasshopper Exploration 1 – Spikes. I am interested in how simple geometric shapes like triangle could join together and form spikes.

Grasshopper Exploration 1 – Spikes

I started this exploration of forms by folding an origami of an interesting pattern I saw. From the paper model, I could play with the movements of the different spikes. I transferred the pattern into Grasshopper. Below is how the whole definition and pattern looks like. With this definition, I can edit the pattern by (1) adjust the height of the spikes, (2) adjust the size of the triangles and (3) increase or decrease the amount of tessellation. A brief explanation of my definition: Below are the steps involved: Attached below is the link for the definition in Grasshopper: Enjoy! Like this: Like Loading...

Grasshopper. “Fiery Lanterns” is an expression of sustainability and simplicity, in a modern consumerist world when simple ancient systems are taken for granted.


In the theme “Caravansary”, the installation aims to initiate a cultural exchange, encasing Burners and creating crossroads to connect world’s neighbourhoods. The installation shows the possibilities of analysing natural mathematical systems, which we commonly interact with in everyday life and reinterpreting them. Research to produce “Fiery Lanterns”, has allowed detailed prototyping of bending timber to create a memory structure. Testing it to destruction and pushing the understanding of its properties, utilising its strengths and minimalising its weaknesses. The installation takes inspiration from natural repeating phyllotaxis spirals in sunflower heads. “Fiery Lanterns” are made from four identical stitched panels, which are rotated around each lantern’s central axis.
