Grasshopper » VITRUALITY In this session we will be looking at some more advanced components and methods of using grasshopper, principally focussing on Galapagos, Grasshopper’s built-in genetic algrithm solver. Along the way, we’ll also be examining Grasshopper’s metaball component and means of flow control – the Grasshopper equivalent of ‘if statements’ in coding. Example 7: Galapagos Galapagos is best used to solve problems to which the optimal solution is not immediately obvious. In this example the problem which we are going to try and solve is to examine a field of points and attempt to enclose as many of those points as possible within a closed curve of a fixed maximum length.
RHINO: GRASSHOPPER DEFINITIONS - RHINO / GH 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. 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.

Design Reform In this video, we cover the Spring Force within Kangaroo in a simple case. In this video, we give an introduction to the paneling tools within the LunchBox plugin for Grasshopper. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A new version of Grasshopper has been released.
Costa Minimal Surface Force Density (Using the Mesh Vertex Repel command) Grasshopper Definition This definition calls on the ggForceDensity Relax functionality to compute a minimal surface discovered by Costa. This command doesn't compute minimal surfaces for all mesh, but at least seems to give a reasonable impression for Costa Minimal Surface. This is a quick demonstration of it.Grasshopper DefinitionRhino Model with input points Note, that unless you have a quick computer (or a lot of patience), it's probably worth disconnecting at the Mesh component (or disabling) and previewing the surface if you wish to adjust the sliders for variations.
Fabrication » Parametric Modeling Grasshopper: Parametric TrussThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves and most common methods for evaluating and dividing curves, while applying these concepts to build a parametric truss. Grasshopper : Lists + Data MatchingThis module covers some of the basics about the Grasshopper interface, basic understanding of the logic of parametric design (inputs, outputs, and relation-based information flow), information management using data lists and looping, and applying these concepts by creating a responsive surface using an attractor point.

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. Our growing stockpile of custom digital ammunition has helped us to be agile in our approach and deliver better service to our AECO clients. On the boards...
Archive » Pneumatic Panels “Revised” [rhinoscript] Toni Österlund an architecture student at University of Oulu (Finland) ,revised my code and made some improvements,the script now supports non planar polygons for creating the cushion cladding system, the problem that the code originally had, was that I used a “planar surface” command to create the primary surface to extract the centroid point ,needed to create the cushion surfaces , these new version instead uses a “patch” command , that makes possible working with non planar polygons, the whole code has also been cleaned up and simplified. I also included here a simple Grasshopper definition that creates a honeycomb cladding which can be used to create the polygons for the panels, just one of the many tools you can use for design testing and integration into your workflow. Have fun and don´t forget to send your feed back.
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. supermanoeuvre ReVault is a project that implements a new methodology for the design, fabrication, and construction of unreinforced thin-shell stone vaulting through the use of algorithmic form-finding techniques and multi-axis robotic water jet cutting. The techniques build upon traditional thin-shell masonry vaulting tectonics with a masonry system capable of self-support during construction. The methodology may also reduce the labor cost of vault construction, while expanding the application of thin-shell vaulting to irregular forms that may respond to external factors such as siting constraints and environmental criteria. The intent of the research is to reignite and reanimate unreinforced compressive masonry vaulting as a contemporary building practice and to expand its application through the addition of formally-driven criteria. The ReVault project was presented at the 2011 ACADIA Conference in Banff, Canada, the premier international conference on the impacts of technology on architecture.
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).
