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

Latest Lessons (Tutorials)

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.

In this Paracourse Lesson, we are going to model a Parametric Roof from scratch. First, we are going to model a simple rectangular plane for the base of the roof and then we are going to use a parametric curve to control the overall shape of the model.

In this Paracourse Lesson (25 Minutes), You can learn how to model a parametric vase by using a Perlin Noise Graph mapper. First, we are going to explain how to model the base surface of the vase by using Graph Mappers, and then we will use the Flow command to move a patterned curve to the Vase.
