Working with Data Trees Introduction to Data Structures In Grasshopper Takeaways: What are Data Trees? What do all of those index values mean?If I have a Data Tree, How can I precisely navigate through it? Grasshopper This component implements a mixed approach to creating curves of constant width for regular polygons of odd segment count. This series of components access the sun system in Rhino and allow for control and returning of sun parameters. These two components allow for two means of list organization.

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.

An Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor picks the 5 movies that floored him visually Most people get into visual effects for the explosions. But not Robert Legato, the visual effects supervisor of Avatar and The Aviator, who also won Oscars for his work on Titanic and Hugo. “Everything I end up liking is outrageously simple,” Robert tells the TED Blog. In this thrilling talk given at TEDGlobal 2012, Legato shares how he created the launch scene of Apollo 13 “in a parking lot with a tin can … and fire extinguishers.” Brooks + Scarpa Architects - Santa Monica - Architects Brooks + Scarpa has redefined the role of the architect and results in some of the most remarkable and exploratory design today. We do so by looking, questioning and reworking the very process of design and building. Each project appears as an opportunity to rethink the way things normally get done; to redefine and identify latent potential that exists inmaterials, form, construction and even financing—to, as Lawrence Scarpa says, make the “ordinary extraordinary.”

AADRL 2013 – Algorithmic and production skills with Rhino + Grasshopper: Session 6: Data Trees and Clusters » VITRUALITY Example 5: Data trees In this example, we’ll be taking a look at Data Trees. Data Trees are the key to getting the most out of Grasshopper, but are widely considered to be the ‘hard bit’ and are certainly one of the parts which are least intuitively obvious and take the most getting used to. Don’t panic, though – they are not really as complicated as they first appear and while it can sometimes take a little trial and error to get the results you want from them, Grasshopper is the kind of environment that renders that kind of experimentation relatively easy.

Growth Typologies WORK IN PROGRESS_A+F 16.11.2011modules gathering according the attraction point’s distance : surface division in module according attraction points : modules divison according the attraction point’s distance : 20.11.2011 Modules connections depending on the bordering modules 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.

Hardest language to learn What is the hardest language to learn? Extremely Hard: The hardest language to learn is: Polish – Seven cases, Seven genders and very difficult pronunciation. The average English speaker is fluent in their language at the age of 12, in contrast, the average Polish speaker is fluent in their language after age of 16.Very Hard: Finnish, Hungarian, and Estonian – The Ugric languages are hard because of the countless noun cases. However, the cases are more like English prepositions added to the end of the root word. Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project Plethora-Project.com is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy in the frame of architecture and design. It aligns with the "show me your screens" motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design. Directed by Jose Sanchez Contact me at : jomasan@gmail.com Bio: Jose Sanchez is an Architect / Programmer / Game Designer based in Los Angeles, California. He is partner at Bloom Games, start-up built upon the BLOOM project, winner of the WONDER SERIES hosted by the City of London for the London 2012 Olympics.

Grasshopper For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring. What is Grasshopper? Example of a grasshopper model to design a sun shading system
