For designers who want to use the same flexible language everywhere, GhPython is the Python interpreter component for Grasshopper that allows to execute dynamic scripts of any type. Unlike other scripting components, GhPython allows to use the rhinoscriptsyntax to start scripting without needing to be a programmer. Once on-board and with some practice, you can also get the most of external Python and .Net modules and libraries. This component is open-source, and works in Rhino 5. Join this group to receive updates of new versions, and visit the Grasshopper forum for support. To install: In Grasshopper, choose File > Special Folders > Components folder.

mcneel/ghpython ghPython – New component and parallel modules | Steve Baer's Notes Just in time for Christmas… ghPython was released this week and it has two new features that I’m really excited about. Download ghPython… A little background David Rutten was visiting the McNeel Seattle office in November to discuss future work on Grasshopper and Rhino. When David is in town it always gives me the chance to brainstorm with him and try to solve some of the features that users ask for. Out of these chats came the two major new features in ghPython; the ability to call components from python and an easy way to do this using multiple threads. ghPython ships with a new package (ghpythonlib) that supports these two new features. Components As Functions (node-in-code) There is a module in ghpythonlib called components which attempts to make every component available in python in the form of an easy to call function. Notice that the above sample is just three lines of script (and two lines of comments to help describe what is happening.) Use those CPUs

Python for Grasshopper A new GhPython component brings the Python programming language to Grasshopper in Rhino 5. GhPython introduces Rhinoscript syntax to GrasshopperThe GhPython component is similar to the ones of C# and Vb.Net components in GrasshopperControl the number of inputs and outputs to the componentInclude libraries to the .NET SDK and huge number of Python add-on functionsIntegrates with the new Python editor included in Rhino 5 Python is a modern programming language developed for remarkable power with very clear syntax. Python supports multiple programming paradigms. Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of advanced programming contexts.

Path Mapper Help As a result of a request please find a series of examples for using the Path Mapper component. The First installment of this is showing the Path Mapper imitating some already existing components. Flatten, Graft, Simplify and Flip Matrix. There is also an additional example showing Integer Divide to which there is no existing component. For those uninitiated in the dark arts of pathmapper the component can be found on the Sets Tab> Tree Section with the icon of a red cube. UPDATED to correct an error in the Flip Matrix demonstration path_count should be item_count. Updated: 2011-04-20 Replace Branches Not sure if it's right to include this here as its actually encouraging you not to use the Path Mapper, but sometimes there are benefits to being able to keep the definition free from restrictions like the Path Mapper. I hope to follow this up with some more..... Tags: Branches, Mapper, Path, Pathmapper, Replace Attachments: PathMapper_20110315.ghx, 658 KB ▶ Reply to This

ghPython – Outside the Canvas | Steve Baer's Notes As a follow up to my post about the new features in ghPython, I wanted to point out another feature now available; running Grasshopper components outside of the Grasshopper canvas. Download ghPython… You will need to have installed ghPython and have used the component in grasshopper at least once. Start RhinoRun EditPythonScript and enter the following script Run the python script ghpythonlib (both components and parallel) modules are available in the standard python editor in Rhino. This also lets you work in a slightly different way where you can get points in Rhino using rhinoscriptsyntax “get input” type functions and pass those points (or curves or breps) into the Grasshopper component code.

By the end of this workshop, you will have the knowledge to write and run Python scripts inside and outside of Maya. You will not learn everything about Python from this workshop. This workshop includes all the basic information you should know in order to be proficient in reading, writing, running, and modifying Python scripts. The purpose of this workshop is not to make you expert Python scripters, but to give you a solid foundation from which in further your Python studies.

Python script 01 – Renamer | fb-loop architecture I’ve been trying to learn scripting languages, Rhinoscript, Processing, MaxScript and etc. After researching and comparing several scripts, I came to the conclusion that Python is the way to go since it is widely adopted by many software, Blender, Houdini, Maya, Realflow and the next version of Rhino. Hopefuly, it will be adopted by Grasshopper soon. This is my first Python script. for example, component_01, component_02, component_03 and etc. reNamer = mc.promptDialog(title =’rename’, message=’New name of the selected object’, button=’OK’) if reNamer == ‘OK’: newName = mc.promptDialog(query=True, text=True) listK = selSize = len(listK) for i in range (0, selSize, 1): listK[i] ) if i<9: mc.rename( ‘%s_00%d’ %(newName, i+1) ) else: mc.rename( ‘%s_0%d’ %(newName, i+1) ) Like this: Like Loading...

Adaptive Scaffolding | Explode_BReps @ UVa This definition creates a thickened ground geometry from two sloping curves. Scaffolding grows out of the thickened ground, and its dimensions are derived from the ribs in the ground. This scaffolding can then be trimmed by a curve and a cylinder as if it were growing around walls and buildings. Click here to download the definition. Like this: Like Loading...
