Scaffolding grows out of the thickened ground, and its dimensions are derived from the ribs in the ground. Grasshopper to Catia Progress Update. We’re continuing progress with Dassault Systèmes on implementing Catia into architectural process.

Grasshopper to Catia Progress Update

Our first course of study aims at the Grasshopper/Catia workflow, and since our previous post, we’ve delved into Knowledgeware, the scripting platform for Catia. Our conclusion: Knowledgeware is awesome. In our previous post, we were using Power Copy to create a generative model. While this process worked, there were a lot of manual steps involved, and updating geometry involved deleting all previous geometry and then reimporting. We’ve had similar issues with importing geometry to other applications, but Knowledgeware fixes these issues in Catia. Of the candidates, we’ve taken a particular interest in composite materials, which would be lighter weight, easier to install, and last significantly longer.

The classic waffle structures , I think this kind of definitions are very useful specially to those starting in their way of parametric design and of course Grasshopper, they have a wide range of applications that can go from architectural projects to conceptual furniture like this quick example I made. RhinoFabLab - Design + Optimization + Fabrication. Unrolling Surfaces in Grasshopper. This Grasshopper definition is proof of concept for a VB component that unrolls developable surfaces to the XY plane.

Unrolling Surfaces in Grasshopper

To make the component, I’ve adapted a rhinoscript by Andrew Kudless (of Matsys) to run in VB, enlisting the help of CCA student Ripon DeLeon to write the code.This example uses the VB component to create unrolled surfaces from 4 curves that I have distorted using the cage edit command in rhino. To use the definition on your own projects, simply choose any 4 curves to loft between in sequential order. The blocks of components are grouped somewhat clearly (I hope) so you can add more curves by copy-pasting more blocks and making the few required re-connections to make it work. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. For the above definition, I’ve added tabs along the edges of the unrolled surfaces for ease of attachment. Rhino3D TV - Learn, Teach and Share.

Model of Parametric Bridge Conceptual Design

Here is a bridge that I designed and modeled in Grasshopper. Although this is only a special case, the idea behind it is to take a parametric approach in designing all kinds of bridges since they share a logical structure which is particularly suitable for parametric modeling. I also believe that this logical structure can be implemented with various software. I used clusters to build the model, and the definition can still be difficult to follow. Software.

How to build a Grasshopper component with Visual Studio in VB.Net. By Jonatan Schumacher: Jonatan[at]JSchumacher[dot]com This step-by-step tutorial showcases how to create a simple, but comprehensive Grasshopper component in VB.Net, using Visual Studio 2010 . It was created with the tutorials by David Rutten, which you can find in the help file for the Grasshopper SDK. David explains some of the actions in better detail, so I would suggest looking at his documentation simultaneously. This tutorial covers a few additional steps such as adding an icon and debugging the code. We will start all the way in the beginning with the project setup: Visari to Grasshopper. 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.
