In this Paracourse Lesson, we are going to simulate a falling cloth and use the Kangaroo 2 plugin to make it collide with a solid. First, we are going to explain the basics and then we will extract the resulted mesh.
In this grasshopper definition you can create a simple simulation of attraction through agent base modeling and traces are captured, by using Heteroptera Plugin.
In this definition you can use the shortest walk plugin to produce a venation pattern between a series of random points.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model a parametric table by sectioning a simple deformed box and then extracting the right edges. Finally, we will model the solids and Nest the sections on the ground for fabrication.
In this project by Kai Zhang, designer used bristol paper as construction material. After playing around with paper and exploring possible forms he used grasshopper to parametrically generate the lamp’s form.
In this grasshopper definition by dividing a square grid and extracting relative points in the grid you can generate a parametric 3d pattern panel.
In this Grasshopper tutorial, we will model a Voronoi Puzzle and discover how the connections can be made. In the end, you will learn how to put numbers on the pieces. You can even use this technique to make a parametric facade.
With his first folding tests, Mitch Lorberau mostly worked with printers and physical cuts, in lieu of constructing the grasshopper definition side by side, and limited experience with laser cutting. The pattern was based around a strip module which he replicated and offset to form a larger pattern.
In this grasshopper definition a series of basic grasshopper components has been used to create a surface on top of a network of arcs and curves.
This research by Mehrnoush Latifi Khorasgani, Daniel Prohasky, Jane Burry, Akbar Akbarzadeh and Nicholas Williams focuses on the design of a Robotic solar analysis platform for critical studies which explore dynamic solar light and heat phenomena within the laboratory.
In this grasshopper definition you are able to fill any closed brep through Populate-3d and Populate-Geometry components and connecting each point to the nearest points then thicken and weld the network that has been generated by using Weaverbird Plugin and Fatten component.
This research by Yingyi Zhang aims to create a parametric modelling system to aid urban regulation. The system offers a visualised coding interface to manipulate parameters and achieve interactive performance feedback at the early stage of urban regulation.
In this Grasshopper definition you can model a parametric pattern for 2d panels which is based on a scaling square grid with a connection to a moving point on the edges.
In this Grasshopper Definition the isosurface component from the Millipede plugin has been used to create the isosurface mesh. Iso value defines the effective field around each point and merge vertices is set to true to produce smoother mesh around some corners.
WikiVault is Michael Clarke’s proposal. It utilises a reciprocal frame structure created from flat sheet material that can be assembled rapidly on site with only the aid of a jig for lifting. The system is a very efficient use of material particularly owing to the fact that no formwork is necessary in the assembly.
This paper by Sebastian Dietrich, Sven Schneider and Dimitry Demin presents a new open-source structural analysis plugin for Grasshopper – RhinoRstab. The plugin bridges data between the worldwide established software: Rhinoceros3d and Dlubal RSTAB.
In this Parakeet Plugin Example you can use the Flow Path component to Generate a [Discrete] Fluid Flow Path on a Mesh.
In this grasshopper definition you can run an particle base swarm moving through a closest vector field component made by pufferfish and anemone plugin. The Anemone Plugin is used to make the iterations and control the loops.
In this Parakeet Plugin Example You can make a series of rotating curves by using the “Reflection Point” component. By connecting the polylines to the Fatten plugin you can have a colourful visualization of these rotating curves.
In this Pufferfish Grasshopper tutorial, we will use the “Twisted Box Array” combined with “Mesh Boolean Twisted Boxes” to convert any mesh into a series of boxes and then use the Weaverbird Plugin to convert them into frames and windows.
In this 2D paneling Pattern definition you can model a parametric pattern based on triangles which the center of each edge is connected to the center of the triangle and this point will define the pattern.
In this Grasshopper definition you can model a parametric pattern for 2d panels which is based on a circular connection.
In this paper by Masaaki Miki, Jun Mitani and Takeo Igarashi, authors developed a set of Grasshopper components which enables interactive physics simulation based on the finite element method (FEM). They named this add-on Ricecooker.
In this Grasshopper definition by using the Kangaroo’s Warp & Weft component we can control different tensile forces on the mesh and then by snapping the naked edge’s point to a series of circles we can control the final tensile tunnel.
In this definition by using the Lunchbox spaceframe component and the Parakeet’s Truncate tool we can make a recrusive 3d pattern. You can change the Truncation distance to make the pattern grow or shrink and by changing the Iteration you can define the number of loops.
This book by Amit Zoran contains subjects like parametric design space, introduction to optimization, introduction to gradient descent, grasshopper galapagos and examples for genetic algorithms in parametric design.
In this definition you can use the Pufferfish’s plugin component called Retrans which Recursively transform geometry to get a self-referential step sequence of transformed geometry.
With respect to evolutionary search and optimization, this article by Robert Vierlinger and Klaus Bollinger investigates aspects of flexibility and performance on the levels of fast application and open representation.
In this Kangaroo example by defining a box without caps and using the Edge Lengths tool we will have a tensile structure. Simply by setting the length factor to zero and defining the right anchors we can model a minimal surface.
In this grasshopper definition you can create a Truncated hexagonal grid and then add a pattern to it. You can rotate or scale the pattern with a point attractor and then finally offset the curves.
