In this grasshopper definition by Junichiro Horikawa you can model an undulant portrait using Image Sampler.

This grasshopper example by Tuğrul Yazar is a Cycloid-like family of curves, generated by its classical description: a rolling circle. There’s no need to roll the circle but divide its path, utilizing data lists to simply rotate and evaluate it.

In this grasshopper definition, you can easily convert an image to a series of curves by using the Rooster plugin.

In this grasshopper definition, you can connect your geometrical parametrs to the “gene” input of Biomorpher Plugin. After that, you can select between different designs and choose the preferred generated parent.

This grasshopper definition by Mike Pryor uses closest vector fields to model swarms inside of a closed boundary.

In this grasshopper definition by using a force diagram from the “3D graphic static” plugin you can model a parametric Dodecahedron structure.

In this grasshopper definition inspired by Arturo Tedeschi, you can create random patterns by splitting a planar surface recursively with a series of rotating lines.

In this grasshopper definition, you can map different parametric noises on a surface by using the “4d noise” plugin.

In this Grasshopper definition, you can model a wave-like structure with graph mappers. Then you can use the Millipede plugin to analyze the form. This will give you an overview of which surfaces will give you a better parametric roof structure.

In this grasshopper definition, you can model a series of parametric rotating strips that can cover a circle when they lay on the ground.

The Mesh Color definition by Curvature applies a vertex color based on the average or upper value of the angles between adjacent faces.

In this grasshopper definition by Junichiro Horikawa you can model a triangular 3D pattern.

In this grasshopper definition, we will use the Ladybug Plugin to import the sun path based on an epw file and the n rotate a series of circles towards the sun.

In this algorithm you can simulate a series of rotating parts which fit together after closing. Number of segments, rotation degree and some form parameters can be changed.

In this grasshopper definition by designing a force diagram instead of designing a form diagram of a bridge you can generate an optimized structure by using the 3D graphic static plugin.

In this grasshopper definition by using a rectangle’s diameter and extracting two points on it you can generate a series of skewed lines.

In this grasshopper definition by modeling two series of parametric curves and then using the Lunchbox plugin you can model a parametric truss.

Luis Gil who is currently a candidate for a Master in Design Studies (MDesS) degree at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, developed a useful tool to dynamically create and edit staircases via Grasshopper.

In this grasshopper definition by Junichiro Horikawa you can model a series of wavy like curves with different distribution along the X axis.

In this grasshopper definition you can model a parametric creased surface by changing the scale of the base curve and also using different graphs in Graph mapper.

In this grasshopper definition you can model a simple parametric rotating mechanism. you can actually change the handle’s length , width and also control the rotation speed.

In this grasshopper definition by using Stella3d for particles simulation ,you can move a series of geometries around a defined NURBS curves while they get bigger as they move forward.

In this definition you can model a parametric fractal based on circles.In each step the circles scale down and cover a portion of the circle’s circumference.

In this definition you can model a parametric joint connection for a network of lines. The connection can be 3d printed and by defining sleeves for the pipes you can insert them in the nodes.

In this definition you can model a Step wall in Grasshopper. For the base unit you can control the height, count, width and depth of the stairs.

In this definition you can model a parametric 3D wall pattern based on scaling edges of a rectangle grid and also moving the center of these edges.

In this Grasshopper definition you can use the Anemone Plugin to rotate a tower around itself. First we will define the rotation and scaling factor and then we will extrude the base square to model the tower.

In this Grasshopper Definition by using the Anemone plugin you can model a recursive pattern that connects each corner of the face to the center. You can also Mesh+ & Weaverbird to prepare a mesh or a Nurbs surface for the division process.

In this definition you can model a parametric Islamic Pattern which is based on connecting the center of Triangular grid to a point located on edges and then connect that point to their neighboring corner.
