Independent Study. Posted by LCSinopoli on April 6, 2012 Homepage and Concepts behind Galapagos: ‘Homepage’: Concepts: Grasshopper. (As reported earlier in this previous post) Daniel Piker is developing ways to accurately simulate physical behavior in his Grasshopper component "Kangaroo".

In the latest release there are tools for simulating bending geometry. This is nothing but a revolution for this investigation! Never before have I been able to recreate bending geometry so accurately in an "artificial way". At the moment Kangaroo works very accurately for 2d-bending with both fixed and hinged ends and also in 3d for rods. 3d-bending of developable surfaces is a little more tricky and requires a careful setup to make sure the surfaces stay developable. Kangaroo works in an iterative way by letting some predefined forces (like springs, bending resistance, pressure and gravity) affect the geometry, step by step, until (usually) a stable solution is reached.

Studio « Digital Fabrication in Architecture Group. Introduction The basis for my design was a deployable structure with the express purpose of aid relief.

Therefore, the development of my design was focused specifically towards three key issues: it had to be compact and easily transportable when in storage, quickly deployed with minimum of action, and stable when fully open. These three drivers would direct the formation of material, joints and assembly concerns. Jonas Bredel's Videos. Texas A&M University ARCH 689. LunchBox for Grasshopper.

Designcoding. This is a starting point of pattern generation study in a dataflow environment.

Based on Hankin’s method of Islamic Pattern generations, I tried to simulate his process beginning with a basic regular tiling (regular hexagonal tessellation). This and other methods are explained in phD thesis of Craig S. Pattern Redux. Tutorials. [Sub]Code. This page is set up to host bits of codes and sample algorithms.

This definition is posted to aid the procedure of setting contour surfaces representing a geometry onto a planar sheet in order to get ready-made for digital fabrication.

Two student teams each developed a proposal through dynamic meshrelaxation processes to simulate the formation of a tensioned membrane structure.
