This definition was developed for my final thesis project to generate a louver system based on functional requirements within the building. The performance was then tested in Ecotect. A large part of my thesis design involved invertible arena seating with many moving parts. I used Grasshopper as a means to develop the seating testing clearances, site lines, and many other variables. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure. My favorite definition to date, this definition generates box designs based on real boxes I crafted in the wood shop while in Grad school This definition extrudes geometry based on their proximity to a polyline attractor. Using a definition created by paramod, I wanted to see if I could edit the definition so that different panels could be combined to create a seamless surface This was one of the first definitions from scratch I ever created.

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. Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. Helpful Modules These modules are provided to supplement Grasshopper with a few simple features. Truss Module Grasshopper 3D Truss This module creates an offset truss from a given surface. Point Topology The simplest form of data to work with, points can be propagated into 3D space and can have geometry mapped to them. A Matrix is a 3-Dimensional point set, interpreted as a field of voxels. Download Rhino File Matrix.3dmDownload Grasshopper definition Example-Matrix.ghx A sparse matrix takes a matrix and set of points as inputs.

Grasshopper | Sean Madigan This definition divides a given surface and flattens each quad section to be unrolled to a grid on the xy plane. Once unrolled each face is then flattened and given tabs for reconstruction. Labels are provided. THIS IS CURRENTLY A BETA VERSION AND IS NOT FULLY DEVELOPED, CHECK BACK FOR [...] This definition is a compilation of three major executions. This definition creates a parametric hyperbolic paraboloid surface at any given point in space. This definition takes any curved surface and populates it with a gradient of circles. This Grasshopper definition takes any given surface and populates it with a rectangular “fizz” pattern using a system of attractor curves in coordination with a bit of randomness. This definition takes any given surface and divides it into a given number of rows and columns. This Grasshopper definition aggregates any single rectangular unit between two given surfaces.

TUTORIALS A lot of people have been asking me how I create my renderings. Since I am finished with grad school, I decided to develop some tutorials that explain techniques I used throughout architecture school. Many of the techniques only require Sketchup and Photoshop. Others later on will be a little more advanced and involve rendering programs that can be downloaded for free. . Tutorials Introduction to Grasshopper Videos by David Rutten. Wondering how to get started with Grasshopper? Look no further. Spend an some time with the creator of Grasshopper, David Rutten, to learn the fundamental of Grasshopper. No experience necessary. This 13 part series covers topics that will help you build a foundational understanding of Grasshopper. Dario Donato director di SpatialConnection(s), incubatore di ricerca per una creatività matematica, ha il piacere di annunciare il libro: Contaminazioni creative digitali – Trascrizioni di una complessità algoritmica attraverso Rhino.Grasshopper Transcripts of a complexity algorithmic through Rhino and Grasshopper.

Grasshopper « Philosophical Statement: Inti: The Incan Sun God, his face portrayed as a gold disk from which rays and flames extended. Inti is the Sun and controls all that implies: warmth, light and sunshine. During the festival of Inti Ramyi, held during the Summer Solstice, Inti is celebrated with much drinking, singing and dancing - special statues are made of wood are burned at the end of the festival. Inti incorporates 288 petals are self-assembled into 12 concentric rings, with each petal representing the hours of the day and each ring every month of the year. ‘Timber-Wave’; a plywood instillation emerging and crashing on to the desolate Black Rock Desert. The design of the Timber Wave was driven by creating an interactive environment. Physical Statement: ‘Timber-Wave’ structure consists of 3 layers of 12 intersecting plywood ribbons. 1:20 Scale Model Link: Taking people as the pollen. The Petal Hypothesis sits expressively within its setting. Interactivity:

Improve your logo design Great logo design requires a complex mixture of design skills, creative theory and skilful application. Any designer worth their salt can create a fit-for-purpose logo, but truly mastering all aspects of the craft takes time. Exclusive offer: Save 15% on Adobe Creative Cloud now Of course, logo design is just one small sub-set of branding, but the logo or brand mark remains the centrepiece of most branding schemes. We've spoken to branding professionals about the intricacies of good logo creation, and what qualifies as a great logo. Logo design research and strategy Before pen hits paper on any new logo design project, thorough research is essential. 01. Before you even start working up a logo design concept, ensure you research your target market thoroughly. Compare all the logos in their competitive set. But bear in mind that many of the world’s most recognisable logo designs stand out specifically because they eschew trends and think differently. 02. Why are we here? 03. 04. 05.

Animate Sketching of a Parametric Truss Previous studies on the timer component were based on understanding it’s use. This time, I tried to implement it in a geometric design task. Moreover, manipulating timer component to change the regular animation of parameters. Here is the Grasshopper definition if you want to play with it. The overall look of the geometry is based on an idea by Nilüfer Kozikoğlu. FABRICATION STUDIO for CNC LASER CUTTING | Universidad Europea de Madrid Kinetic architecture (1/3) « VANGUARQ Kinetic architecture (1/3) fLUX, Binary Waves – Lab[au] Another great project by LAb[au], “fLUX binary waves” is an urban and cybernetic installation based on the measuring of infrastructural ( passengers, cars…) and communicational ( electromagnetic fields produced by mobile phones, radio…) flows and their transposition into luminous, sonic and kinetic rules. This relation between the installation and the urban activity happens in real time and sets each person as an element of the installation, as a centre of the public realm. The panels rotate around their vertical axis, and have a black reflective surface on one side, the other being plain mat white. The microprocessors are connected to infrared sensors, capturing the surrounding infrastructural flows, defining the frequency and amplitude of the rotation.

openfootage Owen Architects - Online Professional Portfolio Experimenting with trusses. There are many ways to make a truss, this is a simple method and ready to apply to (almost) any surface just define which surface you wish to use and it will automativally generate it. Make sure to use the expanded version of the definition when dealing with more complicated surfaces (shown to the left in dark green). In ordeer to extrude the geometry of the truss I have included a simple definition (shown in dark blue), experiment with this to get the desired effect. Most parts are labeled and ready to explore, it is a limited definition. But a great starting point to learn from. I have included a Rhino 3D model of this design for of this design for anyone wishing to use it or play with it, unfortunately the Grasshopper definition I used to make the waffle structure can't be found anymore.
