Firefly has an extensive suite of computer vision, analysis, and effects tools. Integrate video feeds (now with multiple camera support), load individual images (.jpg, .tif, .png, .bmp, etc.), play video files and more. Firefly also includes several filtering, graphic effects, and compositing tools to manipulate live image data. In addition, you can create your own custom filters using convolution kernels. You can also take advantage of computer vision algorithms such as optical flow, gradient vectors, contour vectors, and color analysis to make your next interactive project a visual success.

Weaverbird – Topological Mesh Editor Weaverbird is a topological modeler that contains many of the known subdivision and transformation operators, readily usable by designers. Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in reconstructs the shape, subdivides any mesh, even made by polylines, and helps preparing for fabrication. Weaverbird – No expiry. For Rhino 4/5 and Grasshopper 0.9. P1 exercise: Building Radial ribs from Revolved Surface The following tutorial is credited to Francisco Quitral on his development of this method on 1. Start with a revolved surface. (Draw a curve and use Surface – Revolve command)

Abstract Page In this paper we introduce a biologically plausible methodology capable to automatically generate Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) with optimum number of neurons and adequate connection topology. In order to do this, three biological metaphors were used: Genetic Algorithms (GA), Lindenmayer Systems (L-Systems) and ANNs. The methodology tries to mimic the natural process of nervous system growing and evolution, using L-Systems as a recipe for development of the neurons and its connections and the GA to evolve and optimize the nervous system architecture suited for an specific task.

grasshopperworkshop The most up to date information is on the Grasshopper Group site . This page may give everyone a place to contribute and learn on teaching the Grasshopper. This workshop will give students a functional understanding of the grasshopper. Archive » Waffle Structures: Rhino Grasshopper Yes ! the classic waffle structures , I think this kind of definitions are very useful specially to those starting in their way of parametric design and of course Grasshopper, they have a wide range of applications that can go from architectural projects to conceptual furniture like this quick example I made. The definition is made so you can set up the number of sections in the X and Y axis separately , also you can set up the height of each sections as well as the thickness of the material you are going to work with. Finally the definitions orients al the parts to the X-Y axis with an ID tag so you can easily organize them and get them ready for the CNC mill or the laser cutter.

Custom Arduino MIDI Controller - All Hello, and welcome to this instructable on how to build a custom, cheap and easy USB MIDI controller, based on Arduino. The best news: no hassle with USB-to-MIDI interfaces, or software tools like Hairless MIDI, just plug 'n' play! I included readable, basic code for both the Arduino Uno (or Mega) and the Leonardo (or Micro), and I created a MIDI controller library, for those not so comfortable with the programming language, or for those who just want a quick controller without having to write the code yourself. (The library is explained in step 13.) Check out the video of the finished project here. I've been playing around with both Arduino and DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation) for quite some time now, so when I needed a MIDI controller, I decided to build one myself, rather than buying one.

RABBIT 0.2 preview : 2d/3d LSystems + Turtle Interpretation Loaded: 0% Progress: 0% music: “The Slackers” What is this component and where can I find it? Text Components If you are trying to learn GH through a video tutorial and can read a components name on the screen but don't know where to find it then you can invoke the Create Facility by double clicking on the Canvas or using the shortcut key F4. Type the name into the box that appears and you will be presented with a list of likely candidates. Once you have found the most likely culprit you can selected it from the list and place it on the Canvas.

Example files edit 29/04/14 - Here is a new collection of more than 80 example files, organized by category: This zip is the most up to date collection of examples at the moment, and collects together a wide variety of definitions made for various workshops and in response to forum questions. Thanks to all workshop attendees and forum members for your valuable input. It is possible I've missed a few useful ones. If there is something else you'd like to see included please let me know The examples below are mostly older, but I will leave them here for now until I am certain all the same topics are adequately covered in the 'official' collection above.

His initial training took place at the Cretan school but as Crete was owned by the Republic of Venice during this time, it made sense for El Greco to take up his career in Venice. It's thought he went there around 1567, although there is little information about the artist's time in the city. In 1570, El Greco moved to Rome and produced a series of works reflecting his studies in Venice.

One cable Hello! I had put on few pictures if anyone wants to use just one cable for all. I had use standard DVI-D cable. For connections from connector to arduino and limit switches I had cut USB cable. Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper & Rhino Tutorials Introduction to Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper by Daniel Segraves is our first in our upcoming series of rhinoscripting tutorials, grasshopper tutorials & rhino tutorials. This 1 hour course covers the basics of Rhinoscripting in Grasshopper. Daniel demonstrates tools & techniques like variable types, loops & conditionals- allowing you to create your own custom components in Grasshopper. For those of you who are new to Grasshopper remember that its a free plugin to Rhino, so if you have a license to Rhino all you have to do is download Grasshopper & install it on your machine.
