This research by Hong-Cing Tung and Pei-Hsien Hsu is to compile an algorithm for creating origami forms with developability and flat-foldability on the target surface by generating a Miura-ori tessellation from the geometric of the target surface.

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 article by Kenneth Tracy et al. a design framework is presented for creating self-supporting membrane tensegrity shell structures with spatial openings, enabled by novel reciprocally tessellated strut configurations.

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.

Intralattice by dnkrtz, is a plug-in for Grasshopper used to generate solid lattice structures within a design space. It was developed as an extensible, open-source alternative to current commercial solutions, such as Within.

Taekyeom Lee is a designer and researcher taking pottery into the future. He taught himself to build and use a 3D printer with no prior background in robotics. He used it to create 3D-printed ceramic pieces.

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 defintion you can model a parametric wave like structure and two waffle parts which can hold those sections together.

Cocoon by David Stasiuk is an add-on to McNeel’s Grasshopper visual scripting interface for Rhinoceros. Cocoon is a fairly straightforward implementation of the Marching Cubes algorithm for turning iso-surfaces into polygonal meshes.

In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, we are going to introduce a new plugin developed by our team called “Stella3d” and combine it with the Dendro plugin to produce a particle-based simulation.

In this Paracourse Lesson we are going to model a parametric interlocking pattern. First we are going to start with a base grid (Hexagons) and then make the parametric connections with Nurbs curves.

In this rhino grasshopper tutorial,we have used Anemone to make a twisting recursive fractal in which the module is based on a polygon moving, rotating and scaling at the same time.
