Architecture +Design + Computation
Dear “Diary”, I know it has a while since I last wrote. But I recently had a great opportunity to apply part of my research to actual build geometry, and for that I am grateful. In the meanwhile I thought i should share in the form of a .gha assembly a routine that I use frequently to animate data that get into my hands from grasshopper definitions that use Hoopsnake and Anemone(Lately). The main issue with these data sets is that while these two add-ons are running, due to their intrinsic characteristics, is kind of difficult to animate their wonderful iterative and recursive formations. So, to be brief, what ever formation you create with these two looping tools, you can now easily post-animate it and iterate through the various steps of the solution.

Grasshopper For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. What is Grasshopper? Example of a grasshopper model to design a sun shading system Grasshopper (GH) is a programming interface for designer. Instead of using programming languages, it uses a lego-like interface.

Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy in the frame of architecture and design. It aligns with the "show me your screens" motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design. Directed by Jose Sanchez Contact me at : BEND MANUAL The workshop manual is available to read online and download below. It contains all seminar descriptions and daily exercises together with a brief for intermediate and final projects. BEND Manual Download Link

Grasshopper This component implements a mixed approach to creating curves of constant width for regular polygons of odd segment count. This series of components access the sun system in Rhino and allow for control and returning of sun parameters. These two components allow for two means of list organization. Shear List takes a list of data and creates two lists, one with the last item removed and a second with the first item removed creating a staggered pair of lists making value comparisons simple. Pair takes a list and creates a datatree with pairs of sequential values from the list.

Logic gate In electronics, a logic gate is an idealized or physical device implementing a Boolean function; that is, it performs a logical operation on one or more logical inputs, and produces a single logical output. Depending on the context, the term may refer to an ideal logic gate, one that has for instance zero rise time and unlimited fan-out, or it may refer to a non-ideal physical device[1] (see Ideal and real op-amps for comparison). Logic gates are primarily implemented using diodes or transistors acting as electronic switches, but can also be constructed using electromagnetic relays (relay logic), fluidic logic, pneumatic logic, optics, molecules, or even mechanical elements. With amplification, logic gates can be cascaded in the same way that Boolean functions can be composed, allowing the construction of a physical model of all of Boolean logic, and therefore, all of the algorithms and mathematics that can be described with Boolean logic.

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.

Laser cutting tool for block models « Dreamation Workshop Often in architectural design we need to build site context model to get a rough sense of the surrounding buildings. There are multiple ways of sculpting the prisms, but the main principle is to prepare walls that extrudes from the base curve and wrap it around to top and bottom slab. To make them nicely, the “walls” have to take into considerations the thickness of the material one is using.

Resources This section introduces basic Grasshopper concepts through annotated Grasshopper definitions. These are intended to be used in conjunction with the Grasshopper tutorials to provide further explanation for the outcomes reached within the tutorials. Nuclei Nuclei is a project about space, space filling and fields. Starting from a Sphere, the solid with the smallest description (4 float numbers, center and radius) and applying several type of scalar fields to its volume, a large set of boxes is used to highlight the shape and the tension of the underlying forces, through the modification of their size, aspect ratio, density and orientation. A Processing applet has been used for fast experiments and to produce the DXF files for final renderings. Nucleus 04 / ellipsoid with boxes aspect ratio defined by their orthogonal distance from center Nuclei::states_of_matter from novastructura on Vimeo. [Video created on Nov. 01, 2011] Generated with a complete free code pipeline; rapid code prototyping with Processing, c++ conversion in my app Koan3d that drives a RIB exporter for the Renderman renderer 3Delight, video editing and mp4 conversion with Avisynth and sound creation and editing with Audacity.
