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. Aside from some of the typical drawbacks with using meshes in Rhino (which have actually become a lot more workable in Rhino 5), I think it’s reasonably clean.

But in general my hypothesis was proven correct. kangaroo tests more »

Responsive 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.

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.

Core, structure and glazing systems are applied. ezioblasetti We 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

Unrolling Surfaces in Grasshopper This Grasshopper definition is proof of concept for a VB component that unrolls developable surfaces to the XY plane. To make the component, I've adapted a rhinoscript by Andrew Kudless (of Matsys) to run in VB, enlisting the help of CCA student Ripon DeLeon to write the code. See more on this project at Lattice Lab LATTICE LAB was a two-day workshop on the topic of Subdivision Modeling for fabrication with 3D printing. Workshop Journal Lab participants learned how to create, distribute, and smooth mesh elements through the Plug-Ins Paneling Tools and Weaverbird for Rhinoceros. The Lab curriculum included a series of instructional lectures, lab exercises, and open work sessions. Instructional lectures served to both introduce key concepts and spark discussion amongst the group.

Computational Design Sandbox On April 3-4, I had the pleasure of co-teaching a computational design and fabrication workshop together with Gonçalo Castro Enriques (X-REF) at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP), Portugal. The 2-day workshop, titled “Performative Morphologies“, was DataTree selection rules Dear Users, I've been working on data tree selection rules this weekend and when 0.9.0063 is released (hopefully tomorrow, 4th November) the [Path Compare], [Tree Split] and [Replace Path] components will work slightly different from before. Sorry about breaking this, but it proved impossible to improve the selection logic with the fairly ambiguous notation that was implemented already. Not every change is breaking though and I hope that most simple matching rules will work as before.
