Parakeet Plugin Grasshopper3d Definition

Parakeet Plugin #7

In this grasshopper definition by offsetting and scaling one of the Parakeet’s Tiling components (patterns) you can create different patterns. this grasshopper definition uses Parakeet and Weaverbird plugins.

Rolling Sphere Spirograph Grasshopper3d Definition

Rolling Sphere Spirograph

In this grasshopper definition by creating relative tangent spheres which revolve around each other you can create different spirograph patterns in 3d space you can also use Dendro plugin to convert these complex curve to volume.

Rising Chair Grasshopper3d Definition

Rising Chair

In this definition we have remodeled the Rising Chair by Robert van Embricqs in Grasshopper3d. First we have made a rectangle and then by two parametric curves the bending of the parts will be defined.

Smooth Mesh Tower Grasshopper3d Definition

Smooth Mesh Tower

In this definition you can use Mesh+ & Weaverbird plugin to smooth a parametric rotating tower and control the bumps.

Waffle Bookshelf Grasshopper3d Definition

Waffle Bookshelf

In this definition you can make a simple Waffle bookshelf without using any plugins, First, the 3d boxes are modeled based on thickness and depth and then the details are modeled in several steps.

Perlin Noise Sphere Grasshopper3d Definition

Perlin Noise Sphere

In this definition we will use Perlin noise as the base deformation of a sphere. Perlin noise is a type of gradient noise developed by Ken Perlin in 1983.

3D Wall Pattern #1 Grasshopper3d Definition

3D Wall Pattern #1

In this definition we will use some geometrical transformations to model a 3d wall panel. First we will model the rectangles and then we will turn them in to 3d.

Expression Surface Grasshopper3d Definition

Expression Surface

In this definition you can use the expression a*(sin^b)*(cos^c) to produce a parametric mathematical curve and then loft three of these curves to make the final surface.

Mesh+ Example #1 Grasshopper3d Definition

Mesh+ Example #1

In this definition we have used the Mesh+ Thatch weave command to produce a parametric weave pattern on an untrimmed Nurbs surface.

Key Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

Key Pattern

In this definition we have made a pattern based on a rotating and scaling square grid which the center connects to the middle of the edges and then by following a geometrical algorithm we reach the final pattern.

Geodesic Nodes Grasshopper3d Definition

Geodesic Nodes

In this definition we will use the node points of a series of geodesic lines to find the best plane for the cylindrecal connections.

Rhodonea Equation Grasshopper3d Definition

Rhodonea Equation

In this definition you can learn how to use the Point Polar in Grasshopper to Model the Rhodonea equations (sin((n/d)*x)). By changing the parameters you can produce different curves.

Attractor Loft Grasshopper3d Definition

Attractor Loft

In this Grasshopper definition you can extrude and scale a series of squares based on a parametric point attractor. You can also control the height and scale by changing the graphs.

Apollonian Fractal Grasshoper3d Definition

Apollonian Fractal

In this definition we have used the Anemone plugin to model the Apolloian fractal. In mathematics, an Apollonian gasket or Apollonian net is a fractal generated starting from a triple of circles, each tangent to the other two, and successively filling in more circles, each tangent to another three.

Hilbert Curve Fractal Grasshopper3d Definition

Hilbert Curve Fractal

This grasshopper definition is generated by putting simple scaling and rotating into a loop through Anemone Plugin, however it is quite different from the method that mathematician generate the Hilbert Curve fractal. A Hilbert curve is a continuous fractal space-filling curve.

Arched Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

Arched Pattern

In this definition a set of gene pools are used to create the main surface and then data tree has been used to extract three sets of curves to create the pattern.

Erwin Hauer Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

Erwin Hauer Pattern

In this grasshopper definition we will model an Erwin Hauer pattern based on the “Still Facing Infinity” exhibition.

Spiral Spikes Grasshopper Definition

Spiral Spikes

In this definition by using a parametric helix and modeling a series of triangles on the path you can make spiral spikes. You can also change the graphs to get different results.

Sierpinski Pyramid Grasshopper Definition

Sierpinski Pyramid

In this example you can model a 3d sierpinski fractal by using the recrusive behaviour of the Anemone plugin and then you can use the weaverbird plugin to smooth the results.

Random Rectangles Grasshopper Definition

Random Rectangles

In This grasshopper definition you can learn how to model a series of random rectangles on a circle. For example this can be used to model a circular mirror.

Loft Point Attractor Grasshopper Definition

Loft Point Attractor

In this grasshopper definition by using an attractor point we will model a parametric twisting surface and then use Lunchbox or Pufferfish or Weaverbird to model a series of patterns on this base surface.

The Fractals Workshop

About the Workshop

The Fractals Workshop is based on generative growth of natural systems, mathematics and algorithm-based aggregation. This workshop is an adaptation of the teaching methods practiced at the Design Research Lab at the AA School of Architecture.

Surrounded Patterns Grasshopper Definition

Surrounded Patterns

In this grasshopper definition by using a surface which is created from Loft and a single variable function which is controlled by Graph Mapper, you can generate a pattern that surrounded the surface thorough the function.

Parametric Wave Grasshopper Definition

Parametric Wave

In this grasshopper definition you can use the point attractor technique combined with Heteroptera plugin to model a wavy like surface.

Grids Juxtaposition Grasshopper Definition

Grids Juxtaposition

In this grasshopper definition we have modeled two series of 3d patterns based on a square grid which can be controlled parametrically.

Mirror Cut Curve Grasshopper Definition

Mirror Cut Curve

In this grasshopper definition you can model a parametric form by cutting a series of curves with a plane and then joining them with the mirrored result.

Generating Floor Plans

Generating Floor Plans

In the context of a research project by Katja Knecht at the Bauhaus-University Weimar concerned with the development of a creative evolutionary design method for layout problems in architecture and urban design.

Perlin Noise Pottery Grasshopper Definition

Perlin Noise Pottery

In this grasshopper definition you can model a parametric shape by defining a series of circles with a Perlin noise function controlling the radiuses. At the end we will use the Dendro Plugin to voxelize the final shape.
