gálvez & algeciras: SCRIPT EN GRASSHOPPER PARA CONSTRUIR LA TRANSFERENCIA DE PAISAJES EN LA CASA DEL CARNAVAL Para la construcción de la fachada principal de la Casa del Carnaval nos encontramos con la dificultad de la fabricación de los paneles metálicos multiperforados que irán dibujando la imagen pixelada del Castillo de Burguillos del Cerro (Badajoz). Cada fabricante cuenta con materiales de diversas características (tamaño, espesor, distancia entre perforaciones, tipo de perforación, etc...) y con una limitación en los diámetros de taladros para la perforación en los paneles. Cálculo del área perforada: agujeros redondos, al tresbolillo: Cálculo del área perforada: agujeros redondos, al cuadro: Cálculo del área perforada: agujeros cuadrados, al cuadro:
Architecture 2.0 Here are some photos of the various stages of the deck rail fabrication. This project offers a good chance to actually implement scripting into a real world application. As we all know it can be quite rare that these things ever exist outside of the computer screen. We've been fortunate to get to work with the Cincinnati based firm Michael McInturf Architects to conceive and develop this project. The credit for this creation goes to entirely to this firm and it's members - www.mcinturf.com More explanation and photos will follow...
Archive » Triangulate Surface Grasshopper Definition
Hey Guys, I'm trying to figure out how to populate a surface with triangular panels. I found some paneling definitions online that populate a surface with square panels but I haven't seen any that can populate triangular geometry on any surface. Attached is a definition I have been working on thats based on several definitions I found online. so far the definition divides a surface into triangles but when I try to populate it with any triangular geometry its warps the geometry excessively.

Geometry Gym provides software tools and support for Architects and Engineers, streamlining work flow processes for improved productivity and designs. Powerful Parametric and Generative modelling of structure is enabled by utilizing plug-ins for Grasshopper3d and Rhino3d. Generative BIM model exchange is provided using a combination of OpenBIM formats (primarily IFC) and direct API interaction to popular software including Revit, Archicad, Digital Project and Tekla.

There have been some fairly heated posts and discussions in the blogs recently on the subject of some patents relating to architectural geometry held by Evolute, Helmut Pottmann and RFR, about the commercialisation of academic research, and particularly how all this relates to what I do in Kangaroo, and what people can legally use Kangaroo for. Firstly, rather than attempting to paraphrase or summarise, I will link to the posts in question so you can read them (and particularly the comments people made in reply) yourself: Patenting Geometry on Daniel Davis’ Digital Morphogenesis blog and Evolute’s response Why is Evolute Patenting Geometry ?

Generative Algorithms: Lindenmayer-System (L-System) An L-system or Lindenmayer system is a parallel rewriting system, namely a variant of a formal grammar (a set of rules and symbols), most famously used to model the growth processes of plant development, but also able to model the morphology of a variety of organisms. L-systems can also be used to generate self-similar fractals such as iterated function systems. L-systems were introduced and developed in 1968 by the Hungarian theoretical biologist and botanist from the University of Utrecht, Aristid Lindenmayer (1925–1989).
Fibre Composite Adaptive Systems Designed by Maria Mingallon, Sakthivel Ramaswamy, Konstantinos Karatzas Fibre composite adaptive systems is a research project which emulates self-organisation processes in nature by developing a fibre composite that can sense, actuate and hence efficiently adapt to changing environmental conditions. Fibre composites which are anisotropic and heterogeneous offer the possibility for local variations in their material properties. Embedded fibre optics would be used to sense multiple parameters and shape memory alloys integrated in a fibre composite material for actuation. The definition of the geometry, both locally and globally would complement the adaptive functions and hence the system would display ’Integrated Functionality’. ‘Thigmo-morphogenesis’ refers to the changes in shape, structure and material properties of biological organisms that are produced in response to transient changes in environmental conditions.
These are a series of experiments, in which the designer try to use parametric and digital method to realize these interesting optical illusion effects and generate 3d geometry or space rather than just 2d painting.

BIM, PARAMETRICS, and ALGORITHM DESIGN
Yes ! 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. The definition is made so you can set up the number of sections in the X and Y axis separately , also you can set up the height of each sections as well as the thickness of the material you are going to work with. Finally the definitions orients al the parts to the X-Y axis with an ID tag so you can easily organize them and get them ready for the CNC mill or the laser cutter. This definition will help understand most of the basic components that Grasshopper currently has implemented,It was made with Grasshopper Version 6.0019 we have to remember it still is a WIP so they maybe some problems using it in other versions.

Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial - Parametric Truss | Design Reform This is an outdated tutorial. If you are using a more recent version of grasshopper please watch this video instead - http://designreform.net/2011/03/rhino-grasshopper-parametric-truss-update In this Grasshopper video, we will create a parametric truss system by generating and manipulating components and instantiating them onto a lofted geometry. We will start by creating our components from a surface using such features as List Items and Offset. From there, we will continue by subdividing a lofted geometry and then instantiate our parametric components across that surface, creating a parameterized truss system.
Hello, for an art-project I want to build a foam-like structure. after some research i found out that the weaire-phelan-structure (which was also the form-giving-structure for the aquatic center in beijing) is a possibility for visualizing foam. Since I am not really into 3-D-modelling - I am more the chaotic, arty person ; ), I just know more or less the basics of Rhino, Grasshopper and Cinema 4D, I am now wondering how its possible to build this mathematically defined geometry... On the surface evolver site i found the mathematical definitions of that structure, but how can I bring these into a shape in a 3D-software?? I attached a pic of the structure and the mathematical formula... I dont know if the surface evolver could be of any help in this case, since somehow i cant get it running on my computer...
