Learning Grasshopper is challenging. Develop your algorithmic thinking faster and easier + access the Paracourse Definition Library.

Latest Example Files

In this grasshopper example file You can Design a parametric brick wall by defining a series of point attractors.

In this Grasshopper example file you can use Physarealm plugin which simulates a slime mold's growth to generate different tower forms and shapes.

In this Grasshopper example file you can model a parametric scissor structure. You can also deform it from a straight line to an arc by changing the parameters.

In this grasshopper example file you can create a parametric double helix stair.

In this grasshopper example file, you can Model a Skeleton Mesh and then keep the upper part as a Pavilion.

In this Grasshopper example file you can define a series of point attractors and by deforming a surface you can finally model a series of parametric strips.

Latest Lessons (Tutorials)

In this Beginner Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial we are going to model a polygonal concrete Planter from scratch and then use the Pufferfish plugin to give it a thickness.

In this Paracourse lesson we will use the spatial deform component to design a parametric freeform surface pavilion.

In this Paracourse Lesson, we will model a series of rotating strips to make a Parametric Lamp and finally extract the intersections to use the curves for fabrication.

In this Paracourse Lesson, we are going to model a parametric smooth mesh using the Weaverbird Plugin. Then we are going to use some advanced techniques to convert the mesh into a building with frames/windows and slabs.

In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, you can model a series of twisting boxes by defining rectangular sections and then use the graph mapper to extract the non-linear distribution of the sections. In the end, you can extract the fabrication details needed and finally nest them on the ground.

In this Paracourse lesson we are going to model a parametric helix in grasshopper from scratch.

In this Paracourse Lesson, you will learn how to convert a sphere into a series of reciprocal strips. First, we are going to use the Kangaroo plugin to model the baselines, and then multiple techniques have been used to extract the final strips.

In this Paracourse Lesson, we are going to model a parametric Nurbs stair from scratch. First, we are going to take a look at the algorithm and how we can model the stairs as easy as possible.Then we are going to model the base lines and finally the stairs.

In this advanced lesson, we are going to convert the relaxed mesh into a NURBS surface and learn how to penalize it using Weaverbird, Kangaroo, and Lunchbox.
