hoopsnake: Iteration in Grasshopper, Volatile Prototypes Update: Hoopsnake is now Opensource! More info at Github HoopSnake, apart from a legendary creature, is a component for the Grasshopper™ 3D platform. What it does in principle is to create a copy of the data it receives at it's input upon user request and store it locally. This duplicate is made available through a standard Grasshopper parameter output. Design Proposal/ Digital Tooling System A pseudo code for the final design proposal was written in the form of a flowchart. To enable the application of the material system on different sites and conditions, digital models have to be simulated for testing purposes. A digital algorithm that allows for recursion is needed to produce different iterations to constantly re-evaluate the generated outcome.
PET_LAB — open source design research laboratory After a semester of intense work the students of Marc Fornes’, Stephan Henrich’s and Francois Roche’s (n)certainties studio presented their final work today at usc. The studio opened a new territory for usc by venturing deeply into a speculative realm of materiality, technology and ultimately architecture. Subversively leaving the bounds of what at usc is called a ‘comprehensive building design’, the studio allowed for the in depth investigation of designs schemes on the level of proto architecture. 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.

Neoarchaic Design February 4th, 2012 | Published in Design, Furniture, Uncategorized | 1 Comment Mathematical Craft Table_se blends mathematics and computational methods with the practice of a material craft. The concept for the table arose when studying the transformation of the parametric form of the super ellipse. The form of the super ellipse can move between a pure elliptic curve to a tangential pinched cross. By using a conic curve to control the rate of three dimensional plotting of the equation the resultant surface forms a broad flat surface then rapidly but smoothly peals down to a vertical condition.
