Grasshopper (Explicit History)

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 Testing different patterns with grasshopper. Pagora Bench Playing with hopper and Maxwell 2 Two Surfaces Twisted Box It’s been a while I’ve played with Grasshopper. In order to use the definition, first define a box, and some geometries within the box as your base component. Two Surface Space Frame (Rhino Explicit History) Ah so, the new version of the Explicit History plug-in for Rhino is out. crtli_gh_space_frame.wrmcrtli_gh_space_frame.3dm

The Geometry of Bending The Unexpected Way Philosophy Majors Are Changing The World Of Business 25Share Synopsis Here are a few reasons that philosophy majors will become the entrepreneurs who are shaping the business world. Dr. Damon Horowitz quit his technology job and got a Ph.D. in philosophy -- and he thinks you should too. "If you are at all disposed to question what's around you, you'll start to see that there appear to be cracks in the bubble," Horowitz said in a 2011 talk at Stanford. As Horowitz demonstrates, a degree in philosophy can be useful for professions beyond a career in academia. Despite a growing media interest in the study of philosophy and dramatically increasing enrollment in philosophy programs at some universities, the subject is still frequently dismissed as outmoded and impractical, removed from the everyday world and relegated to the loftiest of ivory towers. That doesn't fit with the realities of both the business and tech worlds, where philosophy has proved itself to be not only relevant but often the cornerstone of great innovation.

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail. Law 8, Marion Levy Jr. Notes on points, lines and planes Includes calculations for the distance between points, lines and planes. The intersection between 2 lines in 2D and 3D, the intersection of a line with a plane. The only thing that saves us from the bureaucracy is its inefficiency. Notes on circles, cylinders and spheres Includes equations and terminology. Tiling textures An introduction to texture tiling using characteristics of the texture itself.

psudigitalbeehive | An architecture students resource to improving digital communication + presentation + fabrication skills WooJae's Blog Marilyn Jordan Taylor, Dean and Paley Professor | PennDesign | Marilyn Jordan Taylor, Dean and Paley Professor Academic Year 2011 - 2012 GOALS, PRIORITIES, AND INITIATIVESSeptember 7, 2011 I'm very pleased to take this opportunity to set forth the goals and initiatives for the School of Design in the academic year 2011-2012. In doing so, I hope to engage each and every one of you--students, staff, alumni, faculty, university colleagues, overseers, trustees, and friends--in achieving our extraordinary potential. As a school, our primary objective is to give our students--of all ages and across all the design disciplines--the perspectives, skills, and experiences that will help them meet the opportunities and demands of a changing and challenged, urbanizing world. Goal 1: Advance our visibility and influence through thought leadership, international engagement, and strategic communications. Here are three specific approaches that we will emphasize and showcase in the coming year. - Thought leadership. Among the areas where we at PennDesign can move to the forefront of thinking are
