Introduction 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. No experience necessary. This 13 part series covers topics that will help you build a foundational understanding of Grasshopper. Dario Donato director di SpatialConnection(s), incubatore di ricerca per una creatività matematica, ha il piacere di annunciare il libro: Contaminazioni creative digitali – Trascrizioni di una complessità algoritmica attraverso Rhino.Grasshopper Transcripts of a complexity algorithmic through Rhino and Grasshopper. If you’re looking for a nice collection of Grasshopper tutorials then jump over to Designalyze Here are a series of beginner and advanced tutorials from our friends at Studio Mode... This tutorial series was developed for the Design Studio AIR at the University of Melbourne, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning.

STUDIO AIR This 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 Elseware (

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. It requires Sandbox & Anemone plugins. Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper & Rhino Tutorials Introduction to Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper by Daniel Segraves is our first in our upcoming series of rhinoscripting tutorials, grasshopper tutorials & rhino tutorials. This 1 hour course covers the basics of Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper. Daniel demonstrates tools & techniques like variable types, loops & conditionals- allowing you to create your own custom components in Grasshopper.

The Moebius Exercise Inspired from the works of Andrew F. Scott, (here especially) I decided to create a parametric Moebius surface model used as a foundation for various sculpture projects and educational exercises as well. The most challenging part of this problem was to create a single surface (not a Brep) in order to process it easier later on. Here is the result of this work as Grasshopper definition [2012_01_18-mobius] Please be patient for above animation if it loads slowly. Construction process of the model starts with a 3D ellipse, divided into equal distances and new ellipses are created at each division point over specific planes.

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. 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). Gradient Patterns

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.

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
