Grasshopper Modules - Proxy Wiki From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book. Grasshopper is an exciting and evolving modeling platform - the following examples attempt to develop a range of geometric examples to explore its form-making potentials. Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. You should have this handy for reference. Helpful Modules These modules are provided to supplement Grasshopper with a few simple features. Truss Module Grasshopper 3D Truss This module creates an offset truss from a given surface. Point Topology The simplest form of data to work with, points can be propagated into 3D space and can have geometry mapped to them. A Matrix is a 3-Dimensional point set, interpreted as a field of voxels. Download Rhino File Matrix.3dmDownload Grasshopper definition Example-Matrix.ghx Line Topology 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. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure. My favorite definition to date, this definition generates box designs based on real boxes I crafted in the wood shop while in Grad school This definition extrudes geometry based on their proximity to a polyline attractor. Using a definition created by paramod, I wanted to see if I could edit the definition so that different panels could be combined to create a seamless surface This definition takes a cylinder and transforms it based on the location of objects moving around it. Louvers orient themselves towards multiple objects based on proximity.

Oasys GSA GSA will analyse exactly what you tell it to, nothing more, nothing less. So if you input working loads (or SLS) then that is what will be processed. Assuming that you ran a linear analysis, you can then use the Combinations section to multiple the analysis results by the appropriate factor and add them to other analysis results. If your analyses are non-linear then you must not do this and you should instead include the multiplications and combinations within the analysis itself. The bridge load optimization analysis is slightly different in that it will work out the appropriate factors to apply at any location, and give you the characteristic, combination and frequent load values in accordance with EC1. For more information see the help file (Program data > Cases and Tasks > Bridge Loading > Standard bridge Loading > Eurocode loading) and the Eurocode itself.

PRINT 3D | ControlMAD VII edición!! Curso de Impresión 3D. Ver VIDEO de la I edición (Mendel Prusa i2) AQUÍ Ver VIDEO de la II edición (Mendel Prusa i3) AQUÍ Monta tu propia impresora 3D de plástico ABS. Con la inscripción aprendes a montar y manejar la impresora Mendel Prusa 3 y además te la llevas a casa al finalizar el curso. Importe: 950 euros (21 % IVA incluído). Durante un fin de semana hasta un total de 4 instructores de PROYECTO CLONE WARS y colaboradores con Media-lab Prado (Madrid) nos enseñarán a montar desde “cero” la impresora 3D Mendel Prusa3. Aprenderemos a montar el hardware paso a paso así como a configurar el software (libre) que la maneja, comenzando por el ejeX y siguiendo con los Y, Z. El curso no sólo consiste en montar y calibrar una impresora, sino entender cómo funciona para poder “tunearla”. ¿Qué es PROYECTO CLONE WARS? Clone Wars es un grupo dentro de la comunidad RepRap, que trata de documentar en español todo lo necesario para que puedas construir tu propia impresora 3D. Horarios:

Fast 3d slicer Ive worked all the day in this definition and I hope you like it. With this you can: -make ribs with notches -use the sliders to specify the x and y spacing of a rectangular grid or -use a custom grid (for this you just need 2 sets of lines) -specify the thickness of the material -atomatically place and order the ribs with labels for cut -use a 3d guide for construction -Run or stop the definition It has torus example inside with the custom grid option on. For now (and its just today) all the geometry I sliced worked perfectly. Any suggestions will be very welcome!

Mosquito | Studio Nu | SOCIAL MEDIA FaceBook plugin Working again!: The plugins have been reprogrammed so to work with the new Facebook OAuth API. NEW Record Media plugin: Allows you to record social media information from the media components over time without duplicates. Might be complex for some to use at first. Twitter Working again! Ducplicates: The duplicate component has been updated so to make things easier when recordeding tweets and deleting duplicates. Flickr: Search twitter database for photos based on location and tag/title. ImageDownload: Download images from Flickr or Twitter plugins. Bug Fixes: Fixed bugs with Twitter API access and new functions in String Duplicate component. GoogleMaps : Now works for all users, if it was crashing Rhino before , this should fix it. GoogleDirection : get a route and the directions from one location to another, with distance, time, and steps. Location : Get the address of a given name of place or use a GPS point….reverse GeoCode. Flickr EndDate: The date you want to search up to.

Geometry Gym Fabrication Oriented Parametrics I was recently invited to the city of Changsha, China to conduct a 2 week workshop with Architecture students from Hunan University and also build a pavilion within certain cost/size/material/fabrication/time constraints. We were 3 tutors: Yu Du (Zaha Hadid Beijing), Shuojoing Zhang (UN Studio Shanghai) and myself, along with support from the Hunan University staff. This post is a documentation of what we built and how we got there. Conceptual Design The design brief was to design a pavilion outside the main DAL (Digital Architecture Lab) studio space with some seating within volume constrains of 6m x 3m x 3m, but mostly act as a sculptural piece that demonstrates a parametric design-to-fabrication process. Panellization Once the base surface was frozen, a series of panellization exercises followed with the constants being that the in-house laser cutters were the only fabrication technique available, and plywood would be the most feasible material to procure and fabricate.

SSI - Structural Analysis Data to/from Rhino SSI (Smart Structural Interpreter) is the plug-in I've been developing that allows data to be transferred to and from Rhino from Structural Analysis programs used by Engineers to assess structural performance and strength. This is currently released for Oasys GSA (which is used at our office at Expedition), and early versions are being worked on for other similar programs. A lot of engineering time is spent on updating and altering structural analysis model geometry as projects and designs evolve and change. You can watch this tutorial on this video link, then I'll explain the steps for you to try. Initial GSA model here. Initial Sofistik model here. Initial SpaceGASS model here. You can find the Rhino model with the a surface representing the desired shape here. Download both these files to your computer. Open the Rhino model above, If you haven't already, install ssiGSA and then open the above rhino file.
