Tarsier by camnewnham is intended for use with Grasshopper, an extension to the 3D software Rhinoceros 3D. It’s primary purpose is to add the point cloud functionality already apparent in Rhinoceros 5 to Grasshopper, with the ambition of treating point clouds as another useful data type.
Zebra is a C# grasshopper plugin, developped by YFA team when a need came for an agent based design plugin that can do the following: Optimized plugin to flock at least 100 agents with no performance issues, Combining behaviours with each dynamically and in the same simulation…
Digitalis 3D by digitalis3d aims to facilitate digital design of intricate lattice structures with controlled local and global properties. It supports smart and flexible automatic generation of 3d lattices with finely tuned local structural, mechanical and porosity properties.
GluLamb by Tom Svilans is a toolkit for modelling free-form timber structures in Rhino 6. This software has come out of the PhD project Integrated material practice in free-form timber structures.
Impala by dcascaval replicates common bottleneck Grasshopper operations with a focus on efficiency, allowing complex scripts and static simulations embedded within Grasshopper to make use of all available computational capacity.
Numerical Geometry Utility by NJ Namju Lee, NJStudio is an add on for Grasshopper3d for analysis. It’s an outcome from a research in Computaional Design.
The TIE (Tensegrity Integration Element) by son2yyk is developed to help utilizing Tensegrity system. This tool resolved the issue of adapting the tensegrity structure to the building.
This research by Carlos L. Marcos, Mara Capone and Emanuela Lanzara tries to reflect on the idea of digitally conscious design, from the inception to the manufacturing process of a prototype.
Jellyfish by Smei is an Implicit modeling plugin for Rhino Grasshopper. It utilized Ryan Schmidt(author of Autodesk Meshmixer)’s brilliant open-source geometry3Sharp library. The goal of the plugin is to provide an intuitive and fast way to model, manipulate and visualize implicit geometries.
Squid by Mateusz Zwierzycki enables to create drawings using Grasshopper. By utilizing Data Trees it can also render animations (as .png sequences). A marriage between raster and vector imaging, bounded with parametric interface.
Culebra.NET by Luis Quinones is a 2D|3D Multi Object Behavior library written in C# (Wrapper around Culebra Java library) focused on hybrid system interactions with custom Visualization, Data, and performance features.
Starfish by Michael Weizmann is a Grasshopper plugin that allows parametric generation of various patterns. It focuses on 2d tessellations that can be used to create structural systems based on topological interlocking principle.
Tundra by Miroljub is a one stop grasshopper plugin for generating complex noise patterns. Includes noise generators as well as lots of useful methods such as filters, modifiers, combiners, transformations.
Fractals is a plugin for Grasshopper that allows users to create 3 different types of mathematically generated fractals.
OctaTree plugin by samalika3 includes 3 capsules. They provide the algorithm of voxelization, based on octree structure. It works much faster then, f.e. creating the definition with a 3D array of points.
