Organicités Piraeus Tower The façade of the building is a freestanding structure. It is somehow hung from above and is punctually attached to the concrete structure to assure stability for the lateral movement and the wind loads. All the structure is made of two “types” of cables, first there are some bigger and longer ones that crisscross over the entire high of the building and are 6 panels wide, then every panel is perpendicularly surrounded by 2 sets of crisscrossing cables, all cables seem to work in tension. The glass panels are fixed to some brackets, two at the top and two at the bottom, those are visible from the outside, and sideways, the panels are over lapping each other. The façade has 3 main layers, the exterior plan that is created by glass panels, then a void of 90cm, where we can see the crisscrossing cables that support the structure, and finally, an interior glass panel that seems to have different proportions then the outside ones, since they go from floor to sealing.
Tutorials Introduction to Grasshopper Videos by David Rutten. Wondering how to get started with Grasshopper? Look no further. Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project Plethora-Project.com is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy in the frame of architecture and design. It aligns with the "show me your screens" motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design. Directed by Jose Sanchez Contact me at : email@example.com
Enough with the fools... let's look at some tools! While many of the tools from this month's CASE announcement showed a lot of promise it may be some time before we ever see renewed interest in t-squares and drafting tables. But April fools aside, certainly readers of this blog can all agree that information has been at the core of what we do for a very long time... the tools for leveraging it has just evolved into something far more sophisticated than a red pen (which is still pretty damn powerful!) At CASE, we have continued to build tools that are helping us seize new opportunities for leveraging building information. We build internal tools to help us deliver better services, we build custom apps that meet a client's specific needs, and we build purpose-built workflows for projects.
Adaptive Scaffolding This definition creates a thickened ground geometry from two sloping curves. Scaffolding grows out of the thickened ground, and its dimensions are derived from the ribs in the ground. This scaffolding can then be trimmed by a curve and a cylinder as if it were growing around walls and buildings. Click here to download the definition. Like this: Stacking of Boxes/Volumes (Via Any Method, Kangaroo, etc.) - Need Help/Advice Hello Grasshopper community, I have a list of geometry boxes, randomly placed in a larger volume. The smaller volumes are predefined and the amount is randomly generated.
grasshopper code . a collection of codes & grammars for Grasshopper, a generative modeling tool for Rhinoceros. Clusterizer This definition groups indexes of connected points into separate clusters. It requires Sandbox & Anemone plugins. Clusterizer_Co-de-iT_0.9.0076.zip Spirograph Blog Archive » Attracted Flows This is a rhinoscript where you can set various points where vectors flow out from according to a certain velocity. As these vectors travel, the flows are attracted to the various attractor points in different weights three dimensionally. It simulates a close logic to the emitted particles being attracted to newton forces in Maya. Option Explicit ‘Script written by Howard Jiho Kim / crtl-i.com
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. ARCH 581/498 : Fall 2010Digital Design + Fabrication Foundations I Grasshopper: Surface to Planar TrianglesGrasshopper : Surface to Planar Triangles : Fabrication Layout of Planar Components
Path Mapper Help As a result of a request please find a series of examples for using the Path Mapper component. The First installment of this is showing the Path Mapper imitating some already existing components. Flatten, Graft, Simplify and Flip Matrix. There is also an additional example showing Integer Divide to which there is no existing component. For those uninitiated in the dark arts of pathmapper the component can be found on the Sets Tab> Tree Section with the icon of a red cube.
Fibre Composite Adaptive Systems Designed by Maria Mingallon, Sakthivel Ramaswamy, Konstantinos Karatzas Fibre composite adaptive systems is a research project which emulates self-organisation processes in nature by developing a fibre composite that can sense, actuate and hence efficiently adapt to changing environmental conditions. Fibre composites which are anisotropic and heterogeneous offer the possibility for local variations in their material properties. Embedded fibre optics would be used to sense multiple parameters and shape memory alloys integrated in a fibre composite material for actuation. The definition of the geometry, both locally and globally would complement the adaptive functions and hence the system would display ’Integrated Functionality’.
hybridbiostructures: DigiHYBIOS 1.0 & AnaHYBIOS 3.0 / New Approach: From Digital FormFinding to Analogue Methods With the latest HYBIOS, we adopted a new approach. This time the experiment was based on a digital FormFinding algorithm using Daniel Piker's Kangaroo Plugin for Grasshopper. The new experiment also resolved some of the issues of the previous experiment. Decoding Spaces Components for Grasshopper (Rhino) Decoding Spaces Components is a set of spatial analysis components for Grasshopper (a parametric modeling plugin for Rhino 3D). It provides a graph-analysis for segment maps and different visibility analysis methods (Isovists, Isovist Fields and Visibility Graphs). Team: Martin Bielik, Sven Schneider, Reinhard Königin cooperation with the chair Computer Science in Architecture (Prof. Dr. Donath).
GhPython For designers who want to use the same flexible language everywhere, GhPython is the Python interpreter component for Grasshopper that allows to execute dynamic scripts of any type. Unlike other scripting components, GhPython allows to use the rhinoscriptsyntax to start scripting without needing to be a programmer. Once on-board and with some practice, you can also get the most of external Python and .Net modules and libraries. This component is open-source, and works in Rhino 5. Join this group to receive updates of new versions, and visit the Grasshopper forum for support. To install:
