# The Geometry of Bending

(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.

Fabrication Grasshopper: Parametric CurvesThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves along with common grasshopper methods for evaluating and dividing curves. ARCH 598 Summer 2011information >> n-formations FABRICS // LATTICES // FIELDSThis course is designed to introduce and explore computational design, algorithmic thinking, and digital manufacturing–both: the larger ramifications that emerging digital technologies and ideas are having architectural theory via readings, discussions, presentations; and the practical application of these ideas and tools through a series of hands-on, iterative modeling and fabrication assignments.

Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper & Rhino Tutorials Introduction to Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper by Daniel Segraves is our first in our upcoming series of rhinoscripting tutorials, grasshopper tutorials & rhino tutorials. This 1 hour course covers the basics of Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper. Daniel demonstrates tools & techniques like variable types, loops & conditionals- allowing you to create your own custom components in Grasshopper. For those of you who are new to Grasshopper remember that its a free plugin to Rhino, so if you have a license to Rhino all you have to do is download Grasshopper & install it on your machine. Daniel notes that scripting allows you to have more control of geometry & iterations of geometry by giving you more functions like looping & iterations. He says its really important if you are doing optimization, relaxation or any type of physics when you have to iterate through a change many, many times.

Design Reform In this video, we cover the Spring Force within Kangaroo in a simple case. In this video, we give an introduction to the paneling tools within the LunchBox plugin for Grasshopper. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A new version of Grasshopper has been released. It has been over 6 months since... In this video, we give an introduction of Kangaroo, a plugin for Grasshopper developed by Daniel Piker.

RHINO: GRASSHOPPER DEFINITIONS - RHINO / GH This definition was developed for my final thesis project to generate a louver system based on functional requirements within the building. The performance was then tested in Ecotect. A large part of my thesis design involved invertible arena seating with many moving parts. I used Grasshopper as a means to develop the seating testing clearances, site lines, and many other variables. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure.

Tutorials Introduction to Grasshopper Videos by David Rutten. Wondering how to get started with Grasshopper? Look no further. Spend an some time with the creator of Grasshopper, David Rutten, to learn the fundamental of Grasshopper. Archive » Pneumatic Panels “Revised” [rhinoscript] Toni Österlund an architecture student at University of Oulu (Finland) ,revised my code and made some improvements,the script now supports non planar polygons for creating the cushion cladding system, the problem that the code originally had, was that I used a “planar surface” command to create the primary surface to extract the centroid point ,needed to create the cushion surfaces , these new version instead uses a “patch” command , that makes possible working with non planar polygons, the whole code has also been cleaned up and simplified. I also included here a simple Grasshopper definition that creates a honeycomb cladding which can be used to create the polygons for the panels, just one of the many tools you can use for design testing and integration into your workflow. Have fun and don´t forget to send your feed back.

Grasshopper Modules - Proxy Wiki From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book. Grasshopper is an exciting and evolving modeling platform - the following examples attempt to develop a range of geometric examples to explore its form-making potentials. Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. You should have this handy for reference.
