Rhinoceros Grasshopper Space Frame In this tutorial we will look at how to generate a spaceframe. Although the beginning is quite straight forward , the difficulty arises when the top frame has to be defined. It tackles a typical problem with Grasshopper , the list and tree editing. The Design Space frame Before we start building the grasshopper model we should determine some of its basic properties. So our variables/parameters are: the length and width of our bottom grid height of the spaceframe the thickness of the frame elements. Step 1 - Preparing the Rhino scene Drawing a curved line First of all we need to define our roof in Rhino. Our curve It's probably easiest to draw the curve in “Right”-view. Extrude curve Now we will extrude this surface in a straight line. Extrude curve in Front-view It's probably easiest to extrude the curve in “Front”-view. Our roof surface Our surface should look something like this. Step 2 - Starting the Grasshopper model Create a Surface component Connect the Surface component to the Rhino surface

Rhino I’m excited to announce that I will be doing a workshop in interactive parametric modelling with Studio Mode and MakerBot in New York, Feb 19-20 (with an optional extra day on Feb 21). We will be using Processing along with CAD tools like Rhino3D to produce parametric models to output 3D models for digital fabrication. MakerBot Industries have graciously offered to lend us some MakerBot Thing-o-matics to produce models from the workshop. Participants are also free to use on-site KNK High-Force cutters. The full announcement follows below, please visit Studio Mode’s announcement for enrollment and more details. Also check out the series of Processing primers I’ve been writing in preparation for the workshop.

(Note : Put U, V & W sections in different layers & do 1 direction at a time). You can do two of the tree directions each time. U = 30 numbers 9. 10. 11. Using Surface from Planar Curves to create surface. 12. Another way is using RhinoScript will be as follows : On the top view window, draw lines or grids across the surface you selected. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21.

Scripting Essentials Getting Started with Scripting Getting started with scripting can be a daunting task for numerous reasons: not knowing exactly where and how best to start, the mountains of documentation available, etc., so below’s an abbreviated approach that should help. Concentrate first on creating simple scripts using the Documentation and Steps to Developing Scripts. Setting up toolbars and toolbar buttons and having scripts load automatically at startup can come later on. The scripting tool referred to here is RhinoScript accompanying Rhino, the 3D modeling software. An evaluation copy of Rhino can be obtained from the McNeel website ( Hello World! 1) Tools menu: RhinoScript > Edit … (alternatively, Command line: _EditScript) or use a simple text editor, like Windows Notepad, to create and edit your script; save with the .rvb file extension (in this case, save as HelloWorld.rvb) Sub HelloWorld Rhino.MessageBox (“Hello World!”) (select HelloWorld from the list and press OK)
