GRASSHOPPER TUTORIALS + EXERCISES The exercises below test basic competence using Grasshopper. Attempt to complete the exercises and if you need extra help refer to the tutorial PDFs. This tutorial introduces students to the workflow of Grasshopper by creating a simple definition that takes a reference direction from input curves and re-orients them to face an attractor point. This tutorial extends upon tutorial 01 by creating a simple definition that analyses the curvature of a doubly curved surface and indicates how this could be further extended to manipulate material qualities to achieve complex double curvature from perforations in a flat sheet. Information regarding the further extension of this definition is provided at the end of the tutorial. This tutorial will panel a surface with a specified grid of polylines using triangular, rectangular, hexagonal and radial grids.

designcoding This is a starting point of pattern generation study in a dataflow environment. Based on Hankin’s method of Islamic Pattern generations, I tried to simulate his process beginning with a basic regular tiling (regular hexagonal tessellation). This and other methods are explained in phD thesis of Craig S. Kaplan (here) Grasshopper definition can be downloaded here: [GHX file:0.8.0063] This approach is especially good at deformations from various attractors (without breaking linear stability). Further research should include other generation methods such as the rule-based approach that, at first sight seems to fit on a computer simulation better. But first, I have to solve the semi-regular tilings as they don’t exist as ready-made components yet.

Adding color by customizing the default Grasshopper preview in Rhino is a way to build more dynamic representations by adding a level of detail and information overlay to the geometry on screen. Builds on the Reactive Geometry post.

blackspectacles David LeFevre's course is going to walk you through a number of ways to create and manipulate surfaces using Grasshopper and Rhino. We'll start by showing basic methodologies for creating surfaces. Then, we’ll create a simple Grasshopper definition that will illustrate the basic principles of relationship modeling. From there we’ll learn how to extract information from surfaces in order to create new geometries, we’ll learn how to sample an image to create parametric inputs, and finally, we’ll learn how to inform the selection of objects within arrays of multiple geometries.

ecotect mesh data 2 rhino This tutorial runs you through the process of exporting your rhino geometry into ecotect and then bring the analysis data back into rhino. For this tutorial, you’ll need this Rhinoscript, sample data, and sample geometry. 1. Start with your nurbs surface. If it is a polysurface, explode them first, meshing them as polysurface will create triangulated mesh along the seams and you want to prevent that. 2.

Threading Grasshopper An alternative title might be Why CAD software hasn’t gotten any faster in the last three years. Simply, most CAD software is written to take advantage of only one processor, leaving the other three processors in your shiny new Quad-core i7 idle. The solution to the multi-processor problem is threading. [Sub]Code This page is set up to host bits of codes and sample algorithms.

grasshopper (As reported earlier in this previous post) Daniel Piker is developing ways to accurately simulate physical behavior in his Grasshopper component "Kangaroo". In the latest release there are tools for simulating bending geometry. This is nothing but a revolution for this investigation! Never before have I been able to recreate bending geometry so accurately in an "artificial way". At the moment Kangaroo works very accurately for 2d-bending with both fixed and hinged ends and also in 3d for rods.

GH hexagonal mesh 01 With this definition we can plot all kinds of patterns formed by planar closed curves on a surface with double curvature achieving this effect of skin with variable apertures depending on their distance to one or more points attractors. The script works optimizing meshes to obtain a smooth skin using weaverbird component. CONFLUENCES_workshop series This exercise will be explained during the Grasshopper // Clever skin Workshop, for more info check this link: karamba Karamba 1.0.5 is now available for download and includes the following new features and bug-fixes. Karamba 1.0.5 contains these new features: A simplified installation procedure. Iso- and stream-lines with user supplied values and vectors at mesh-vertices (unlimited mesh-size also in the FREE-version of Karamba). Benchmark examples with known results from literature for the evaluation of calculation […]

Drainage Direction Script I made a python script that estimates the direction of drainage paths on a surface. It does not deal with puddling or accumulation, and if you have any suggestions on how to make it faster or to improve it in any way, let me know -- this is a first draft. you can see the python code in this github gist: Tags:
