In this algorithm you can simulate a series of rotating parts which fit together after closing. Number of segments, rotation degree and some form parameters can be changed.
This python component can help you fold a triangle by defining the length of the edge and the folding degree. You can check out the python code for more exercise.
In this grasshopper definition designed by Daniel Piker, we will learn how to simulate the clothcollide by using kangaroo2 plugin.
In this grasshopper definition by using the kangaroo2 plugin you can simulate the wind and see how it can move the cloth.
In this grasshopper definition, you can learn how to simulate the collision of particles by using the Flexhopper plugin.
In this grasshopper definition you can model a hanging cloth by using the flexhopper plugin. We also have used some components to collide a sphere with the mesh.
In this grasshopper definition by defining gravitational load with the Kangaroo plugin on a series spheres, you can see how they bounce and collide.
In this grasshopper definition by creating and adjusting a parametric noise on a grid of points and then lofting them back you can model a kinetic like form.
In this Grasshopper definition you can model a parametric opening and closing scissor which can be controlled by changing the pin location. The location of the pins will change the overall mechanism which is from a straight line to an arced one.
In this grasshopper definition by dividing a circle for the particles location and giving them forces by using the Kangaroo plugin we can simulate a collision of a series of marbles, inside a sphere.
In this grasshopper definition you can model a simple parametric rotating mechanism. you can actually change the handle’s length , width and also control the rotation speed.
In this grasshopper definition by using the Parakeet Plugin you can model a radial scissor mechanism by defining the number of elements , width , size and also the radius of the holes which connect the elements together.
In this Grasshopper definition by using the Kangaroo’s Warp & Weft component we can control different tensile forces on the mesh and then by snapping the naked edge’s point to a series of circles we can control the final tensile tunnel.
In this Kangaroo example by defining a box without caps and using the Edge Lengths tool we will have a tensile structure. Simply by setting the length factor to zero and defining the right anchors we can model a minimal surface.
In this Kangaroo Plugin example you can model a tensile structure with a central curve modifier. The corners of the mesh has been used as the anchors and the “On curve” component has been used to keep the surface on the curve.
In this grasshopper definition you can make a tensile surface with elastic features. The plugins which has been used is kangaroo physics and weaverbird.
