I’m not sure I would have followed the same procedure if I started completely from scratch, but just when you thought it couldn’t get better… Exploding letters! One little caveat, no symbols comprised of more than one piece (sorry all you !?%;=:ij lovers, but ” lovers you’re still in luck). If you look under the covers I have an uneducated hunch that using [Trim with BReps] allows the definition to load / update text faster than [Inside], but as a result I had to do some crazy tree work. Somewhere in there I also did a little VB.NET (still learning). One might ask, why are are you messing with BReps anway?
TutorialsIntroduction 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.MillipedeMillipede is a structural analysis and optimization component for grasshopper. It allows for very fast linear elastic analysis of frame and shell elements in 3d, 2d plate elements for in plane forces, and 3d volumetric elements. All systems can be optimized using built in topology optimization methods and have their results extracted and visualized in a variety of ways. In addition millipede implements a few basic geometric features [extraction of iso surface meshes from volumetric scalar fields or and extraction of curved contours over any mesh] and a few numerical analysis tools [Fast fourier transforms in 1 and 2 dimensions, sparse linear system solver and eigenvalue calculation for large matrices using functionality from the intel math kernel library] The new version of millipede includes the surface reparameterization module that enables the generation of vector field aligned patterns over any mesh.
Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora ProjectPlethora-Project.com 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 : firstname.lastname@example.org Bio: Jose Sanchez is an Architect / Programmer / Game Designer based in Los Angeles, California.grasshopper code. a collection of codes & grammars for Grasshopper, a generative modeling tool for Rhinoceros. Clusterizer This definition groups indexes of connected points into separate clusters.
Sonic 4 GHSonic is a Grasshopper plugin suite that currently contains the following components: UPDATE : New Refraction component!!!! as requestedSTUDIO AIRThis tutorial series was developed for the Design Studio AIR at the University of Melbourne, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning. The series tries to introduce some of the simpler concepts of Grasshopper within more complex definitions to generate more interesting demonstrations and uses reverse-engineering of exciting contemporary computational design projects. Content developed and presented by Gwyllim Jahn. Creative team: Stanislav Roudavski, Course Designer and Coordinator (some relevant literature) David Lister, Senior Tutor

Grasshopper « Attitude GeometriesCellular Automata Building Propotional studies of a building facade. These videos shows an animation how to use the generative design methods in architecture and design. Methods: Synthesis, Celluar Automata, zelluläre Automaten, Parametrics There are different initial cells at the bottom. There are different types boxes.FabricationGrasshopper: 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.

Grasshopper (Explicit History)Same Area Voronoi using Galapagos I have been quite fascinated by the recent development of Galapagos for Grasshopper. This is a simple example of its application set up to solve for a 10-point voronoi division within a user-defined boundary where all the parts are divided as equally as possible in terms of their areas. I ran this with an initial population of a hundred for 200 generations. The results are not 100% perfect, but very close (which is the nature of an evolutionary solver I believe).Example filesedit 29/04/14 - Here is a new collection of more than 80 example files, organized by category: This zip is the most up to date collection of examples at the moment, and collects together a wide variety of definitions made for various workshops and in response to forum questions. Thanks to all workshop attendees and forum members for your valuable input. It is possible I've missed a few useful ones.
