Fractal Tree Generator Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Fractal Tree Generator

In this Fractal Tree Generator tutorial, we will use Grasshopper3d to model a parametric Fractal tree which can generate different tree models. First, we will use a plane and an arc to define the angle and length of the branches.

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.

Integration of acoustics in parametric architectural design

Parametric Acoustics

This paper by Dr Thomas Scelo describes the collaborative approach to develop a single algorithm for both acoustic and architectural form generation.

Parabolic Curve Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Parabolic Curve

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I want to teach you how you can simply make a parametric parabolic curve. First, we will define the baselines then we will divide it into points and by managing the index of the data we can finally make the pattern.

Developable strips and digital fabricated lightweight architecture

Lightweight Architecture

This research by Francisco Gonzalez-Quintial and Andres Martin-Pastor is mainly focused on the development of a system that would be able to offer the potentiality of constructing free-form surfaces by using developable surfaces.

3d Sphere Wave Grasshopper3d Tutorial

3d Sphere Wave

In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial you can learn how to apply a sine wave on a sphere based on a point attractor. First we will model a mesh sphere and then we will use the distance between the point attractor and the mesh vertices to move them.

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.

Parametric Robot Control

Parametric Robot Control

In this paper by Johannes Braumann and Sigrid Brell-Cokcan, authors will discuss existing methods of programming industrial robots, published architectural results (Gramazio and Kohler) and the design of a new user interface.

Shape Design and Analysis of Adaptive Structures Using Grasshopper3d

Adaptive Structures

This paper by Lenka Kormaníková, Eva Kormaníková and Dušan Katunský describes adaptive materials and structures used in architecture. An adaptive shape is designed and analyzed using algorithmic plug-in Grasshopper.

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.

Bounding Box Opt. Grasshopper3d Definition

Bounding Box Opt.

In this definition you can learn how to optimize a bounding box of a solid by using Galapagos and by rotating it around the x,y,z axis. Finally you can use a few simple commands to visualize some of the Data in the rhino viewport.

Parametric Ecological Design
