Weaverbird – Topological Mesh Editor Weaverbird is a topological modeler that contains many of the known subdivision and transformation operators, readily usable by designers. Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in reconstructs the shape, subdivides any mesh, even made by polylines, and helps preparing for fabrication.

Volatile Prototypes / hoopsnake: Iteration in Grasshopper Update: Hoopsnake is now Opensource! More info at Github HoopSnake, apart from a legendary creature, is a component for the Grasshopper™ 3D platform. What it does in principle is to create a copy of the data it receives at it's input upon user request and store it locally. This duplicate is made available through a standard Grasshopper parameter output. What this means in practice is that it is possible through the use of HoopSnake to send the output of a set of components back to it's input in a looping fashion. The loop can be stopped at any point either by the user or automatically by setting a termination condition (the third input of the component) to false. With the download file examples of various Hoopsnake configurations are included. Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License.

Biomimesis and the Geometric Definition of Shell Structures in Architecture Semra Arslan Selcuk, PhD Candidate Department of Architecture, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey . e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Al J Fisher, MEng Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, University of Bath, UK . e-mail: email@example.com Chris JK Williams, MA, PhD, MIStructE e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org In architecture the concept of biomimesis ( bios , meaning life, mimesis, meaning to imitate , also known as biomimetics) can be applied to the design of tree-like, web-like, skeleton-like, pneumatic and shell-like structures. Shell structures may be constructed from masonry, concrete or a grid of steel or timber members – a lattice or reticulated shell. 1. A shell is a three dimensional curved structure which resists load through its inherent curvature. There are many precedents of the use of natural forms and phenomena as the basis for architectural geometry. In 1964 Frei Otto founded the Institute of Lightweight Structures at the University of Stuttgart. 2.
grasshopperworkshop The most up to date information is on the Grasshopper Group site . This page may give everyone a place to contribute and learn on teaching the Grasshopper. This workshop will give students a functional understanding of the grasshopper. Allowing them to build on this understanding into more advanced projects of their own. A basic understanding of the Grasshopper Interface Troubleshoot definition problems and solutions Know the main component types. Be able to join, and manage connections Use Expressions for both calculation and boolean creation.

gHowl | Food4Rhino gHowl is a set of components which extend Grasshopper's ability to communicate and exchange information with other applications and physical devices. gHowl is developed by Damien Alomar, and Luis E. Fraguada and Giulio Piacentino. gHowl code is now available by browsing the gHowl repository on GitHub. Components: UDP Components now have the ability to send and receive to a Multicast group. OSC functionality is provided by the Bespoke OSC Library by Paul Varcholik. Network Source - Tests the connection of your machine to a network. UDP Send - Allows the sending of UDP messages over the network. UDP Receive - Allows the sending and receiving of UDP messages. OSC Channel - This component allows the storage of a single OSC Channel. OSC Dispatch - This component allows the storage of data from multiple OSC addresses. Spreadsheet: The spreadsheet components leverage the OpenXML engine. Spreadsheet Reader - Retrieves spreadsheet data from a file stored on your computer. XML Writer - Writes out XML

RhinoVAULT Beta Funicular Form Finding The Rhinoceros ® Plug-In rhinoVAULT emerged from current research on structural form finding using the Thrust-Network-Approach to intuitively create and explore compression-only structures. Using reciprocal diagrams, it provides an intuitive, fast method, adopting the same advantages of techniques such as Graphic Statics, but offering a viable extension to fully three-dimensional problems. Mission Our goal is to share key aspects of our research in a comprehensible and transparent setup to let one not only create beautiful shapes but also to give the user an understanding of the underlying structural principles. Disclaimer The development of RhinoVAULT is currently supported by the BLOCK Research Group at ETH Zurich.

What is this component and where can I find it? Text Components If you are trying to learn GH through a video tutorial and can read a components name on the screen but don't know where to find it then you can invoke the Create Facility by double clicking on the Canvas or using the shortcut key F4. Type the name into the box that appears and you will be presented with a list of likely candidates. Once you have found the most likely culprit you can selected it from the list and place it on the Canvas. Both Icon and Text If you have downloaded someone else's definition and are wondering where you can get a component from on the Ribbon then provided you have the GH window wide enough to display all components [EDIT: This is now capable of showing any component in the dropdown menus] then you can hold down Ctrl+Alt and click on the component. Icon Components If you can see the Icon but don't know the name then things are a little trickier but not all is lost because with a little bit of detective work Help is at hand......literally.
