Shortest Walk

In this Grasshopper tutorial, you will learn how to use the Shortest Walk plugin to generate a venation pattern on a NURBS surface by defining point attractors.

Parametric Maze

In this Grasshopper example file you can design a parametric maze and find the path from a starting point to an ending point.

Polar Growth

In this grasshopper shortetwalk example file, you can create a series of parametric polar branches by scattering random points on a a circle and using the Dendro plugin.

Kangaroo Parametric Dome

In this grasshopper example file, you can use the Shortest Walk Plugin to generate a series of shortest curves on a mesh and then use the Kangaroo 2 plugin to model a parametric dome.

Antisnub Effect on Shortest Walk

Antisnub Effect on Shortest Walk

In this grasshopper example file you can model a parametric 3d form by using shortest walk from random generated points and add antisnub component from the mesh+ plugin.

Shortest Walk Table Grasshopper3d Definition

Shortest Walk Table

In this grasshopper example file by using the shortest walk plugin and a series of random points you can model an organic parametric table.

2D Venation Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

2D Venation Pattern

In this Grasshopper definition, you can define a planar closed curve and a series of points for the branching base locations. use the Shortest walk plugin to find the nearest distance between the starting point and the branches. Finally, you can give it a thickness.

Shortest Walk

In this definition you can use the shortest walk plugin to produce a venation pattern between a series of random points.
