Grasshopper Modules - Proxy Wiki

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. Helpful Modules These modules are provided to supplement Grasshopper with a few simple features. Truss Module Grasshopper 3D Truss This module creates an offset truss from a given surface. Point Topology The simplest form of data to work with, points can be propagated into 3D space and can have geometry mapped to them. A Matrix is a 3-Dimensional point set, interpreted as a field of voxels. Download Rhino File Matrix.3dmDownload Grasshopper definition Example-Matrix.ghx Line Topology

Background Worker Hi everyone, within a custom component (code below) I am creating a BackgroundWorker object to run an application (open Notepad) on a different thread to avoid freezing Grasshopper's UI. Everything seems to work fine but I'm currently encountering two bugs: 1. the output - DA.SetData(0, "Doing stuff"); - is not automatically refreshed when I assign it the new value from within worker_DoWork 2. if I inspect the output message with a panel it displays two branches, as if it had created a tree structure (see picture) Can anyone provide me the missing piece of the puzzle?

Invertible Seating Grasshopper - alex hogrefe architecture blog To aid in the design of the transforming arena seating, I created a parametric model that would allow me to test out the mechanics of the structure as well as the density, spacing, slope, site lines, and other factors. The seating has a double function as seating for the arena on one side, then inverting and becoming seating for lecture halls on the other side. The lecture hall seating faces outwards through a large glass curtain wall to an outdoor amphitheater allowing the system to double as seating for outdoor performances. I will be exploring how the curtain wall can open in the future. Movable walls separate individual lecture halls creating sound isolating rooms. When the seating transforms to the arena side, it provides ideal site lines to the court

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. Organicités Piraeus Tower This second exercice is a direct continuation of the previous one. The facade made out of random positioned glas pannels is only a exterior layer that loosly wraps the building. The interior facade and actual water barrier is recessed by approximately 2.5 meters and is entirely glazed. Projecting slabs, linking the exterior “screen” with the interior facade, become balconies. The building structure is a metal frame construction with large oval cased columns and a grid of horizontal beams. The columns are on the inside of the interior facade on the northern facade, on the southern facade however, they are located between the 2 facade layers perforating the balconies.

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.

john locke » Blog Archive » kangaroo tests Spent the better part of the day playing around with the incredibly cool Kangaroo , the live 3D physics engine for Rhino, developed by Daniel Piker. Images are poor substitutes for showing just how fun this tool is to experiment with, so to get a better idea of the program’s potential see Daniel’s great vimeo page . The above images were part of a series of experiments in dropping a series of cubes through an obstacle course, and pulling points around on a 3D space frame. They were based on tutorials found at the always helpful and inspiring Kangaroo google group page . reply

Re-Thinking CAD Standards: Why there’s never a good time, and never a better time… After several months of blood, sweat and tears, we are very happy to share with you a free download of our CAD Standards, the Electronic File Naming Convention and the Project Folder Organisation we will be using at HDA, with immediate effect. We are a hybrid team of architects, designers and engineers. Even though we strongly believe in this interdisciplinary approach, we understand that it presents difficulties in achieving coherence and clarity in our management systems.
