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
Jewelry webinar | T-Splines blog About six months ago, Australian jeweler Chris Botha started playing with T-Splines for Rhino and posting his results in the T-Splines forum. His gallery thread has turned into the most prolific on our forum, with 161 posts and over 12000 views, and is filled with dozens of jewelry pieces that are distinctively organic. On Friday, October 28, 2011 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT, Chris will present at a free T-Splines webinar, “How T-Splines changed my approach to making jewelry in CAD.” There are still spots available — register now for this free webinar.
