This paper by Asterios Agkathidis and Tuba Kocaturk reflects a collaborative, research led design project, aiming to explore the potentials offered by incorporating parametric / generative tools and performative lighting simulation software.
In this grasshopper definition you can generate a bracelet by creating a curve based on a differential growth algorithm by using the stella plugin.
Fractals is a plugin for Grasshopper that allows users to create 3 different types of mathematically generated fractals.
In this grasshopper definition you can extract the iso curves of a sphere, divide them into points and generate a form which depends on the point charges and positions. We will use the point to volume component of the Dendro plugin to voxelize the form.
OctaTree plugin by samalika3 includes 3 capsules. They provide the algorithm of voxelization, based on octree structure. It works much faster then, f.e. creating the definition with a 3D array of points.
Fractal geometry formation, which is focused on this study by Asli Agirbas, is a system seen in nature. A model based on fractal growth principle was proposed for tile design.
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.
SkinDesigner by sgaray enables the rapid generation of facade geometries from building massing surfaces and repeating, user-defined panels.
In this essay by Parinaz Mansourimajoumerd and Mohammadjavad Mahdavinejad, studies are about using kinetic design and fabrication method in one project despite ordinary ways regard to the two main points…
In this grasshopper definition, you can create a bouncing ball motion by scripting in python.
Hummingbird by Mario Guttman is a set of Grasshopper components that facilitate the creation of Revit native geometry. This process exports basic geometric properties and parameter data to CSV text files which are used to create Revit BIM geometry.
The paper by Rivka Oxman examines the uniqueness of seminal parametric design concepts, and their impact on models of parametric design thinking (PDT).
In this grasshopper definition, you can generate a Perlin noise on a pattern and use it for weaving the parameters. you can also use weaverbird to smooth the result.
In this grasshopper exercise file, you can learn how to rotate a series of panels based on an image. You can also extract an arc based on the angle of rotation.
The goal of this library by camnewnham is to provide efficient and simple functionality to extend the creation, usage and display of meshes.
Starling mesh tools by Mateusz Zwierzycki. These components enable mesh parametrization, so it behaves like a surface – you can evaluate points at any place etc.
The ShortestWalk add-on for Grasshopper exposes one component which, given a network of curves and a list of lines, calculates the shortest route from line start point to line end points in a network. It is based on a topology calculator and the A* search algorithm.
In this grasshopper exercise file, we have used a plugin to produce a wave-like mesh pattern and then use weaverbird to smooth the final result.
tOpos by archiseb is a 3D Topology Optimisation plugin which is using GPU for computation acceleration. It is based on CUDA technology provided by NVIDIA.
This thesis by Aitor Almaraz aims to explore the possibilities of the implementation of parametric design as a linking tool for architectural spatial decisions, structure and costs -in economic and energetic terms- to analyze and determine their performance.
Octopus by Robert Vierlinger was originally made for Multi-Objective Evolutionary Optimization. It allows the search for many goals at once, producing a range of optimized trade-off solutions between the extremes of each goal.
VisualARQ by F.Salla adds flexible BIM features to Rhino, and speeds up the process of modeling an architectural project in 2D and 3D. VisualARQ provides tools to generate all project document information and quantification.
Voronoize by Ar37 is a grasshopper plugin that allows you to create voronoi structure from any Closed PolySurface, Open PolySurface, Non-Planar Surface, Planar Surface and Mesh.
This grasshopper definition can help you model fractal trees fast.This Python fractal tree example file can also be used as an exercise for how to write fractals in python and use boolean to make your code more advanced.
In this grasshopper definition, you can model a Klein bottle using Parakeet’s plugin. Then you can twist the mesh around an axis and finally create a contour from the mesh and extract the curves.
This paper by Mostapha Sadeghipour Roudsari and Anne Waelkens introduces a custom workflow for modeling frit patterns for daylight simulation on buildings, which streamlines quantitative and qualitative daylight analysis.
In this tutorial, we are going to model the Jewel Changi Airport Waterfall in Grasshopper. First, we are going to model the base surface and then we will divide it into two series of strips and make the panels from scratch.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Lunchbox tutorial, we are going to show you a trick to model a Sierpinski Pyramid with the Lunchbox plugin. We will also show you how you can use Keyshot to get a better visualization of your form.
Atträctor by Friedrich Söllner is an easy to use tool to transform grids according to given attractor geometry. This tool was developed for a beginners Grasshopper workshop at the Städelschule architecture class in Frankfurt/Germany.
