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. This is another way of creating space frames using U/V divisions from two surfaces.

Grasshopper Modules - Proxy Wiki From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book. 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. 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.

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. Point Attractors Long time no see. Been very busy in the last couple of months…:( However I am particularly happy about this post. For the past month I had the chance to work on something that has been on my mind at least two years now. grasshopper (As reported earlier in this previous post) Daniel Piker is developing ways to accurately simulate physical behavior in his Grasshopper component "Kangaroo". In the latest release there are tools for simulating bending geometry. This is nothing but a revolution for this investigation!

These videos shows an animation how to use the generative design methods in architecture and design. Methods: Synthesis, Celluar Automata, zelluläre Automaten, Parametrics

Waterbomb Tessellation and Beyond It all started with the platonic passion on origami tessellations, not much of the origami, but the tessellation part, as I didn’t want to fold it physically, nor model them using a physical engine such as Kangaroo. That would also be very unnecessary (and yes, very boring) to simulate a folding effort on computer unless we lose our connection with the real world. Instead, I tried to look at a much abstract, silly and basic part of it; the creasing patterns.
