Millipede Bridge Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Millipede Bridge

In this ParaCourse lesson, we are going to model a parametric bridge in grasshopper3d and then use Millipede to analyze the structure and max deflection.

8- Dome Optimization

In this ParaCourse lesson, we are going to write an algorithm which produces different breeds of domes based on a sphere and then use the millipede plugin to optimize them.we will finally compare max deflection with weight to select the best solution.

Optimize Wall Covering Grasshopper Galapagos Tutorial

7- Wall Covering

In this ParaCourse lesson we are going to cover a wall with a series of modules. First we are going to use a polyline as the base of the wall and then optimize it by using Galapagos. Galapagos will find the best size for the modules and how many we need for each wall.

Millipede Roof Optimization Grasshopper3d Tutorial Millipede Plugin

6- Roof Optimization

In this Paracourse Lesson we are going to use the millipede plugin combined with Galapagos to optimize the location of a series of columns for a simple roof. First we are going to define the geometric parameters for the columns and then define the structure.

2- Ladybug Radiation

In this Grasshopper course lesson, I will optimize a building base on radiation. First I’m going to define the algorithm for making the building twist while controlling the orientation. Then we are going to connect the building to ladybug and optimize it for a 3month period based on maximum total radiation and using Galapagos.

1- Structural Shell

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will model a parametric surface and then use the millipede plugin to optimize the structure based on maximum displacement.

3- Nesting Example

In this Paracourse Lesson, we are going to talk about a simple yet powerful example of nesting polylines and curves in Grasshopper and by the Help of Galapagos. First, we will define the algorithm of Nesting and then we will optimize it for the smallest Sheet Area possible.

4- Optimize View

In this course lesson, I will show you how you can optimize a view with a simple lesson. first, we will define a target viewpoint and then we will define a path which the person walks on. We will also define obstacles and how they can affect the view.

5- Space Frame

In this Paracourse Lesson, we are going to optimize the shape of a space truss using Grasshopper and Galapagos. First, we are going to explain how to make the space truss by using two parametric surfaces and the Lunchbox component and then we are using the Millipede Plugin to optimize the structure.
