[FORMul[a]RCH] Grasshopper Exploration 2 – Triangle Box | ID 2112. For this pattern, I combine 2 different shapes (triangle and rectangle) and form the tessellation. Because of the way it is arranged, the movement on 1 axis is destroyed. However because of that, it makes the tessellation unique. Below is the form transferred to Grasshopper: With this definition I could (1) adjust the height of individual top point, (2) the width of each segment, (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!

What makes sense to automatize/script and what not I started doing my first attempts implementing parametric modeling techniques into my projects using Rhino and Grasshopper after I got bored and frustrated repeating a certain set of actions over and over. One of the very first scripts I remember writing was a script to generate a simple column grid. The input parameters where the spacing between the x and y-axis and the size of the columns.

The reason for this was that every time there is a new project, almost always a structural grid is needed. I know, far from the sexy patterns or form-finding algorithms that are also possible using the same parametric tools! Like mentioned above and also visualized in this graph from howtogeek, be smart about when to use scripts in your projects. Start simple and small Always start small when you start writing your first script. These are more or less the steps you need to take to get the job done. Take baby steps Happy learning!

By: Brian Ringley In this lesson, Brian shows how to extract isocurves from a surface by count and then based upon a target stepover value.

In this tutorial Brian adds some complexity to the surface to be used for toolpathing by deforming its edges along a sine curve. In this tutorial Brian creates a surface to be used for robotic toolpathing. In this tutorial we play around with the Graph Mapper component to control the shape of a simple vase. By: Zach Downey Now that the print is done we have to remove it. Now that we have everything set up, it's time to start printing the part. This tutorial shows how to Unload and Load the PLA Filament on the back of the Makerbot. This tutorial shows how to level the Makerbot build plate and gives a few tips and a few tools to make your life easier as well. Pages Want to Contribute? Want to be an author?

The last two examples we looked at point attractors, but you can also do this with curves (think paths).

Step One – Setup your initial surface and divide using Isotrim (SubSrf) as in the previous example. Step Two - Many contemporary projects (in Landscape, but also in Architecture) show paving with the joints aligned, (see example 1.5 but often it is better construction practice to offset courses of bricks. Part of the reason for this contemporary aesthetic, I think, is the designers don’t know how to offset the bricks when they are drawing them in the computer. OK, there are other reasons, but sometimes, or most times, you may want to have some offset. To do this, you can do a simple True / False dispatch on your Subdivided Surfaces list and Move the True values an amount of your choosing.

In this example I added one more thing before doing the math. Step 4 – Math to determine scale factor. Example 1 – A relatively close paver might have a remapped distance of 0.3.

"Graft" and "Flatten" changes the data structure inside a parameter. Sometimes it is necessary to modify the data structure because the default layout does not result in the desired operations. Imagine you divide 5 closed curves into 10 segments each. The result of this operation is a data structure of 5 lists with 10 items (points) each. If you were to Flatten this structure, you'd end up with a single list containing 50 items.

For more information on grafting and flatteening, see see the Generative Algorythms book, chapter 5_6_On Data Trees for more information. ~David Rutten. Digital Fabrication | Antonio Turiello. Groups. There are a lot of code snippets scattered all over our forum which don't manage to form a proper, fully-grown plugin. Milkbox intend is to collect all those useful pieces, and make them easily accessible by providing links.

This is another fabrication tool that i wrote almost two years ago for my thesis. So… let´s show the code!!!! This tool was developed for the automated process of unrolling planar surfaces for fabrication via laser cut or cnc cut. It allows the user to select the surfaces of the model (or polysrf) and make an array of contours with an ID, in the model and the array (for further assembly help).

I wrote it for the ribber tool, and added to the MAB FPS and exatect structure scripts. It´s a very simple, but powerfull tool ,i hope you use it , and again , do whatever the f#\$#cK u want. but remember to name the real author of the script. Video showing the script running, (in spanish). stay tuned for more SHOW ME THE CODE!!!
