Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project 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 : Bio: Jose Sanchez is an Architect / Programmer / Game Designer based in Los Angeles, California. rhinoscript This is another fabrication tool that i wrote almost two years ago for my thesis. So… let´s show the code!!!! This tool was developed for the automated process of unrolling planar surfaces for fabrication via laser cut or cnc cut. It allows the user to select the surfaces of the model (or polysrf) and make an array of contours with an ID, in the model and the array (for further assembly help).

RHINO: GRASSHOPPER DEFINITIONS - RHINO / GH 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. I used Grasshopper as a means to develop the seating testing clearances, site lines, and many other variables. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure.

PhD Thesis – Modelled on Software Engineering: Flexible Parametric Models in the Practice of Architecture In my PhD thesis I explore the relationship between software engineering and the design of flexible parametric models. It’s a little too long to fit on a single webpage, so either jump into the specific sections using the contents below, download the whole thing as a PDF, or buy a print copy from Lulu (at cost).

Blog Archive » Attracted Flows This is a rhinoscript where you can set various points where vectors flow out from according to a certain velocity. As these vectors travel, the flows are attracted to the various attractor points in different weights three dimensionally. It simulates a close logic to the emitted particles being attracted to newton forces in Maya.

The Archigram Archive [Image: From an "ongoing speculative proposal exploring the implications of cones of vision and their interaction with an existing neoclassical ‘temple’ on the River Thames in Henley, Berkshire," by Archigram/Michael Webb]. As of roughly 16 hours ago, the Archigram Archival Project is finally online and ready to for browsing, courtesy of the University of Westminster: the archive "makes the work of the seminal architectural group Archigram available free online for public viewing and academic study." The newly launched site includes more than 200 projects; "this comprises projects done by members before they met, the Archigram magazines (grouped together at no. 100), the projects done by Archigram as a group between 1961 and 1974, and some later projects." There are also brief biographies of each participating member of the collaborative group: Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron, and Michael Webb.

grasshopper code . a collection of codes & grammars for Grasshopper, a generative modeling tool for Rhinoceros. Clusterizer This definition groups indexes of connected points into separate clusters. CNC or LC Fabrication Contour Surfaces Grasshopper Definition This definition is posted to aid the procedure of setting contour surfaces representing a geometry onto a planar sheet in order to get ready-made for digital fabrication. The logic behind the definition is quite simple and the values explored are parametrically adjustable in order to fit most user cases. The definition was compiled using GH8.04 hybridbiostructures: DigiHYBIOS 1.0 & AnaHYBIOS 3.0 / New Approach: From Digital FormFinding to Analogue Methods With the latest HYBIOS, we adopted a new approach. This time the experiment was based on a digital FormFinding algorithm using Daniel Piker's Kangaroo Plugin for Grasshopper. The new experiment also resolved some of the issues of the previous experiment. A cellular grid was used to generate a frame for pathways to have a more even floor to walk on.

Rhino Innovative Ways to Visualize Building Performance Data Presentation 1 Title: Dhour – Grasshopper Based Visualization Toolkit Kyle Steinfeld, Assistant Professor, Department of Architecture, University of California, Berkeley This presentation will detail a new prototyping visualization toolkit called “Dhour”, developed for the Grasshopper visual programming environment, which enables the situational development of information graphics. By enabling more nuanced and customizable views of complex... New Version of Mr.Comfy Released Mr.Comfy is a Grasshopper3d component, written in Python, that allows designers to interactively visualize thermal building simulation results data in Rhino3d design models.

DataViz: Programming languages, toolkits and libraries This is part of a series of posts to share with readers a useful collection of some of the most important, effective and practical data visualisation resources. This post presents the range of data visualisation programming languages, toolkits and libraries, sometimes used in isolation, often used in partnership to accomplish specific functions. Please note, I may not have personally used all the packages or tools presented but have seen sufficient evidence of their value from other sources. Whilst some inclusions may be contentious from a quality/best-practice perspective, they may still provide some good features and provide value to a certain audience out there. Finally, to avoid re-inventing the wheel, descriptive text may have been reproduced from the native websites if they provide the most articulate descriptions. Your feedback is most welcome to help curate this collection, keep it up to date and preserve its claim to be an essential list of resources!
