GRASSHOPPER TUTORIALS + EXERCISES | ex-Lab 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. This tutorial will panel a surface with a specified grid of polylines using triangular, rectangular, hexagonal and radial grids. Using a series of data manipulations, colour information from an image is used to inform a complex outcome.
Harvard VB Origami latest activity | designbymany 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". 3d-bending of developable surfaces is a little more tricky and requires a careful setup to make sure the surfaces stay developable. Kangaroo works in an iterative way by letting some predefined forces (like springs, bending resistance, pressure and gravity) affect the geometry, step by step, until (usually) a stable solution is reached. For more reading on how Kangaroo deals with bending, Daniel Piker has recommended a paper written in 1998 by S.M.L. Many thanks to Daniel Piker for making and sharing the Kangaroo!

Plethora Project Studio « Digital Fabrication in Architecture Group Introduction The basis for my design was a deployable structure with the express purpose of aid relief. Therefore, the development of my design was focused specifically towards three key issues: it had to be compact and easily transportable when in storage, quickly deployed with minimum of action, and stable when fully open. These three drivers would direct the formation of material, joints and assembly concerns. The inspiration for the structure was a portable folding stool, with a swivelling mechanism that resulted in a stable tripod base when deployed, but a compact bundle when closed. The final purpose of such a tripod was to provide an elevated rail on which food cargo can be suspended, for ease of movement and to facilitate distribution. First prototype From the swivel motion of the stool, I designed a joint that I hoped would allow the same freedom of movement while being stronger when scaled up to the size of a full tent. Second prototype This model was laser cut from 5mm acrylic.
Grasshopper fundamentals Parametric modeling from beginner to intermediate 2014 December 1-3 14.45-17.45 UTC = 15.45-18.45 CET = 09.45-12.45 EST = 06.45-09.45 PST Instructors Ilaria Giardiello, Giulio Piacentino This course is meant for every designer, engineer and architect who wants to get a solid basis of generative and parametric modeling within their Rhino workflow. During these three days and the last assessment session, we will explore and build structures in parametric space, embodied in geometrical entities (curves, surfaces) and using algorithmic patterns. Quick description The class is taught in English, fully online in 3 sessions of 3 hours each and an additional online assessment. Registrations The course is tutored by geometrydepth.com and organized by Piacentino Consulenze Snc. Contact us Contact us for any additional information at any time! Sale! Grasshopper Fund.
Galapagos | Independent Study Posted by LCSinopoli on April 6, 2012 Homepage and Concepts behind Galapagos: ‘Homepage’: Concepts: Real World Uses: - Ventilation Panel Design: Finding the best pattern to keep a constant 40% opening ration for optimum ventilation while limiting radii to cut down on tooling costs. – Proctor and Matthews Architects - Plan Optimization Test: Using “client-based” requirements for a plan layout, Galapagos solves a number of plan options to best achieve all 12 parameters. - Laser Cutter Material Optimization: This definition helps maximize use of materials for laser cutting purposes.
Parametrics | Pratt Institute Interior Design 659 class blog | Page 19 Group- Myself and Ajitha. I came up with this idea of a Parametric Threshold- A THRESHOLD THAT DEFINES THE MOMENT OF TRANSITION. Ajitha’s idea was of parametric skin light clusters. After the class discussion we zeroed down on the Threshold idea. My inspiration for the pattern on the skin was from the traditional Indian ‘Jali’ system- Latticed screen, usually with an ornamental pattern constructed through the use of calligraphy and geometry. I started on working out the parametric trusses with what we did in class and the help of the tutorial . Here are some ideas for the location and form for the canopy. Here is another one of our concepts for the canopy. I team with Justin and Edeline. This is one of the ideas of our group.
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). Update: I’ve optimized the definition.
