GH: OBJECT MANIPULATED MESH. This definition shapes meshes with objects 1.

GH: OBJECT MANIPULATED MESH

Start with some mesh (in this case a box)2. Create objects inside or outside the mesh to manipulate the mesh3. Octopus. New in v0.3: you can work single-objective problems by imposing diversity as a second objectiveyou can add preference selections that try to get close to the parametrization of that solution, compared to the older preference selection where the respective part of objective space is favouredyou can change the number of objectives during a search3d models of the solutions can be displayed in octpus' objective-space viewportconvergence, genetic distance, and hypervolume graphdifferent mutation operators [HypE, Polynomial, Alternative Polynomial]different reduction operators [Hypervolume Indicator, SPEA2] Octopus introduces multiple fitness values to the optimization.

Octopus

The best trade-offs between those objectives are searched, producing a set of possible optimum solutions that ideally reach from one extreme trade-off to the other. Marching Cubes: Curve Wrapping & More Metaballs. UPDATE: 30-Jan-2014 I have added breps as an input for wrapping geometry (it also can take lines now), as in the above definition.

Marching Cubes: Curve Wrapping & More Metaballs

It has been updated for some efficiencies...now you can taper a curve at both ends if you choose, you only need to feed one radius, although you can feed as many as you like (it acts like the longest list component). The definition uses kangaroo, weaverbird and nudibranch, although I ahve also included some internalized geometry...but I highly recommend playing with those! Cone.png (1600×993) Marching Cubes: Curve Wrapping & More Metaballs. GH to SVG – your graphics directly from grasshopper. We all know the value of data in computational design field.

GH to SVG – your graphics directly from grasshopper

Many times we need to inform our models with several flux of information and many times we need to show these information using dataviz or infoviz graphics. Co-de-iT decides to maximize the workflow speed in Grasshopper and code some components in order to expor realtime graphics in SVG format readable immediately in your favorite graphics software (Inkscape or Illustrator) or at live, dragging and dropping it in a new Chrome Browser tab. The components are actually released as grasshopper clusters (they are literally syntax parsers that transform GH data in SVG objects syntax) in order to let anyone to implement the components with other features.

Muscle 002. Downloads - Geometry Gym. Space Symmetry Structure. Dynamic Relaxation - fixed number of times. Performs dynamic relaxation on a network of lines - essentially smooths the network. Optionally the lines can be relaxed over a surface as well. GrassHopper Scripting 3: Hexagons on a surface. Archsim. Leaf Venation. Hi everyone,

: The plugins have been reprogrammed so to work with the new Facebook OAuth API. NEW Record Media plugin: Allows you to record social media information from the media components over time without duplicates. Might be complex for some to use at first. Check to example files included and it should be self explanatory, else send me a msg and i will try to help Flickr: Search twitter database for photos based on location and tag/title. ImageDownload: Download images from Flickr or Twitter plugins.

ImageMaterial: Map a image onto a nurb surface. Bug Fixes: Fixed bugs with Twitter API access and new functions in String Duplicate component. Millipede. Millipede is a structural analysis and optimization component for grasshopper.

Millipede

It allows for very fast linear elastic analysis of frame and shell elements in 3d, 2d plate elements for in plane forces, and 3d volumetric elements. All systems can be optimized using built in topology optimization methods and have their results extracted and visualized in a variety of ways. CERVER Tools. Chameleon. GENERATION. Elk. Karamba. Karamba 1.0.5 is now available for download and includes the following new features and bug-fixes.

karamba

Karamba 1.0.5 contains these new features: A simplified installation procedure. Iso- and stream-lines with user supplied values and vectors at mesh-vertices (unlimited mesh-size also in the FREE-version of Karamba). Benchmark examples with known results from literature for the evaluation of calculation […] This intensive 4 day design/fabricate/build workshop explored digital form-finding techniques to produce a series of scaled architectural prototypes for freestanding pavilion structures.

Two student teams each developed a proposal through dynamic meshrelaxation processes to simulate the formation of a tensioned membrane structure. Candela Revisited The pavilion was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects London for the China International Architectural Biennal. Rechenraum - Overview. Path Mapper Help.

As a result of a request please find a series of examples for using the Path Mapper component.

Path Mapper Help

The First installment of this is showing the Path Mapper imitating some already existing components. Flatten, Graft, Simplify and Flip Matrix. Lars Renklint's Page. Continuing to explore the work of Rinus Roelufs, I had some progress with the selfintersecting Moebius band.

Lars Renklint's Page

The holes that permits the surface to weave into itself are now circular. The definition is not all that parametric yet, meaning you can only change the size of the moebius, the size of the holes and whether the moebius band should be twisted… Continue. SR22. Kangaroo discussions and examples from GH forum.

Example files. Edit 29/04/14 - Here is a new collection of more than 80 example files, organized by category: This zip is the most up to date collection of examples at the moment, and collects together a wide variety of definitions made for various workshops and in response to forum questions.

Thanks to all workshop attendees and forum members for your valuable input. Daniel Piker’s Videos. Kangaroo - Mesh Relaxation - Tutorial 1. Slingshot! GH+MySQL v0.6 Released.
