Extrude Mesh Faces In conjunction with a form-finding exercise in Kangaroo, I was searching for a way to render a single, closed mesh as if it were an inflatable form made of individual, stretchy panels – think soccer ball. Since I was already starting with a mesh, I needed something that could extrude and manipulate individual mesh faces normal to the face centroid with a certain degree of flexibility. I couldn’t find much online, so I put together a super basic, simple grasshopper file. Parametric facade apertures on swooping surfaces are out, parametric emoticons are in. bucky was right I’ve used genetic algorithms for form finding with a previous project, and that time I was using a tenuous connection between catia, modeFrontier and Robot. A couple of observations: Galapagos pretty quickly found the overall shape – smaller radii at the extremes and bulging in the middle – the beginning of a sphere. But in general my hypothesis was proven correct. kangaroo tests more » assembly more »

Responsive Skins | An exploration of Paratonic Surfaces in ArchitectureResponsive Honeycomb Morphologies [Gh3D]Continuing with the experimentation and research of honeycomb morphologies and a as example for a Workshop I gave recently I developed a Grasshopper tool for creating a responsive skin system ,using my previous VB script component for creating honeycomb patterns.

The Design The Rhino surface Before we start building the grasshopper model we need to create our Rhino Surface. Step 1 - Creating the basic grid Create the basic grid The first step is to link the Rhino surface within our Grasshopper model. We need to set the surface. RMB on the surface » select “Set one Surface” and click on the Rhino surface To create the grid on the surface we will divide the surface. We want to be able to change the number of divisions in order to change the number of grid points on the surface. Our grasshopper model should now look something like the image on the right. Step 2 - Cleaning up the list of points Looking at the list values When we create a panel and connect the output of our Divide Surface to it, we can see the values within the list of grid points. What we notice immediately, are the list items with the value "NULL".

Primary facade composition: windows and light boxes Secondary facade composition: zinc panels between the primary composition (it might influence the primary composition, because of its size constraints… ) The whole facade could be set out of some modules. Flow chart for the parametric interpretation of the Porter House facade.

ezioblasettiWe are the hackers of abstraction. We produce new concepts, new perceptions, new sensations, hacked out of raw data. Whatever we hack, be it programming language, poetic language, math or music, curves or colorings, we are the abstracters of new worlds. Whether we come to represent ourselves as researchers or authors, artists or biologists, chemists or musicians, philosophers or programmers, each of these subjectivities is but a fragment of a class still becoming, bit by bit, aware of itself as such. — A Hacker Manifesto by McKenzie Wark I spend much energy trying to realize situations and occurrences physically before I give in to digital effects. — Barney and Noé discuss River of Fundament PEOPLE: Robert Williams - Geometry + Mathematics we-designs: Robert Edward Williams (born 1942) is an American designer, mathematician, and architect. Now, poetry, as generous as its beauty may be, is indubitably an authoritarian form of declaration. — Badiou, ‘Plato, Our Dear Plato!’
Grasshopper | neoarchaicThis component implements a mixed approach to creating curves of constant width for regular polygons of odd segment count. This series of components access the sun system in Rhino and allow for control and returning of sun parameters. These two components allow for two means of list organization. Shear List takes a list of data and creates two lists, one with the last item removed and a second with the first item removed creating a staggered pair of lists making value comparisons simple. Pair takes a list and creates a datatree with pairs of sequential values from the list. Returns the character from an integer index value, 1=A, 2=B, etc. This collection of preset value list components contain the RGB values for the RAL color scheme. A first pass at creating a vector reflection component. The Radial Hexagon component mimics the setup of the radial grid component in grasshopper and creates a hexagonal cell patterning radially about the center of a user specified plane.
gálvez & algeciras: SCRIPT EN GRASSHOPPER PARA CONSTRUIR LA TRANSFERENCIA DE PAISAJES EN LA CASA DEL CARNAVALPara la construcción de la fachada principal de la Casa del Carnaval nos encontramos con la dificultad de la fabricación de los paneles metálicos multiperforados que irán dibujando la imagen pixelada del Castillo de Burguillos del Cerro (Badajoz). Cada fabricante cuenta con materiales de diversas características (tamaño, espesor, distancia entre perforaciones, tipo de perforación, etc...) y con una limitación en los diámetros de taladros para la perforación en los paneles. Cálculo del área perforada: agujeros redondos, al tresbolillo: Cálculo del área perforada: agujeros redondos, al cuadro: Cálculo del área perforada: agujeros cuadrados, al cuadro: Hemos elaborado un Script en Grasshopper que nos permite el control del diseño de las perforaciones en función de las restricciones de fabricación (tes diámetros de perforaciones, distancia entre perforaciones, etc...). El script está diseñado en dos fases: El anterior ofrece radios de perforaciones aleatorios entre 0 y 1.
LadybugWhat is Ladybug? Ladybug is a free and open source environmental plugin for Grasshopper to help designers create an environmentally-conscious architectural design. The initial step in the design process should be the weather data analysis; a thorough understanding of the weather data will, more likely, lead designers to high-performance design decisions. Ladybug imports standard EnergyPlus Weather files (.EPW) in Grasshopper and provides a variety of 2D and 3D designer-friendly interactive graphics to support the decision-making process during the initial stages of design. The tool also provides further support for designers to test their initial design options for implications from radiation and sunlight-hours analyses results. What is Honeybee? Honeybee is a free and open source plugin to connect Grasshopper3D to EnergyPlus, Radiance, Daysim and OpenStudio for building energy and daylighting simulation. Current release includes all the daylighting components and let the users to: Ok!
