Member Index

In this Grasshopper tutorial for beginners you will learn how to use the member index component to sort a series of geometries or data which are similar.

Table Field

In this Grasshopper example file, you can design a parametric table by defining fields from the Heteroptera and Dendro plugins.

Orient On Curve

In this Grasshopper example file, you can orient a geometry on a curve by defining a base line and a gap distance.

Inflate Strips

In this grasshopper tutorial You will learn how to convert two set of curves into a series of arcs and strips.

Erwin Hauer Module

In this Grasshopper example file you can learn how to model a parametric pattern based on the Erwin Hauer module.

Proximity Connection

In this Grasshopper Multipipe example file, you can create a parametric connection by defining random points and then connecting them based on the Proximity 3D component.

Scaled Voronoi

Now that you have learned how to scale a series of voronoi cells you can use this example file to design a parametric pavilion with more control over the final shape.

Kangaroo Vertices

In this grasshopper kangaroo example file, you can design a parametric tensile structure with Kangaroo 2 and then use the Leopard Plugin to have more control over the anchor points.

Surface Bumps

In this Grasshoper Lunchbox example file, you can create a 3d bump pattern on a Nurbs surface.

Optimize Nesting

in this grasshopper OpenNest example file, you can put every two peices of sections side to side to reduce the cutting length and optimize it.

Grasshopper Kangaroo (Attractor Pattern)

Attractor Pattern

In this Grasshopper Kangaroo example file, you can generate 3d Patterns on a surface by defining point attractors.

Gyroid Shell

In this Grasshoper script, you can use the Axolotl plugin to create a parametric gyroid shell.

Parametric Building

In this grasshopper example file you can design a parametric rotating building by creating a series of polygons.

Discrete Lines

In this Grasshopper example file You can use the native grasshopper components combined with the Pufferfish plugin to create a series of discrete lines.

Digital Architecture

This essay by Patrik Schumacher, refers to the use of computational design processes and their manifest effect on the architectural outcome, rendered or built.

Wormhole Library

Wormhole Library

This project by Chinese architecture studio “MAD”, has designed a library in the city of Haikou, China, that is intended “to be a wormhole that transcends time and space”.
