This publication is an elaboration of exercises provided in Andrew Payne and Rajaa Issa’s Grasshopper Primer. In addition, lessons outlined in Algorithmic Modeling with Grasshopper by Zubin Khabazi, are referenced as well as scripts written during Professor Kyle Talbott’s Microcosm Studio.
In this thesis by Daniel Davis, he considers the relationship between the design of software and the design of flexible parametric models. and also considers, using a reflective practice methodology, how software engineering may inform parametric modelling.
This paper by Zhao Jingtao proposes the theoretical framework of Eco-shaping Architectural Design Approach, explains its work flow and verifies the effectiveness in one architectural design practice.
In this exercise file, you can learn how to scale a series of boxes by using the range and graph mapper to produce a non-linear distribution.
‘Generative Algorithms’ by Zubin Khabazi which published on-line, was aimed to bring forward subjects and concepts on geometrical issues related to architectural design and some basic experiments using parametric modeling and algorithmic approach with Grasshopper.
Performance-driven architectural design by Xing Shi and Wenjie Yang, emphasizes on comprehensive optimization of various quantifiable performances of buildings. As the leading profession of a project team, architects play a vital role in conducting the performance-driven design.
The purpose of this tutorial by Ivo A. Semerdjiev is to create a folding origami skin based on parametric principles. The first step is to make a square grided surface based on one convex and concave curves. Their z-axis planars are aligned and then arrayed.
ShapeDiver.com lets you upload and display your Grasshopper definitions online for free*, along with their parameters. Once uploaded, the system makes sure anyone in the world can access and edit your definition’s parameters via a web browser, while your scripts remain private and safe on servers located inside the EU.
Introduction to Grasshopper for Rhinoceros by Maria Mingallon contains examples that explain Data Storage: Objects, Scalars, Data Trees, Vectors. Curves (NURBS): Definition & type of curves Curve Analysis (Curve Domain), Surfaces (NURBS): Definition & Surface Analysis Surface Domain & Evaluate Surface and Manipulation of Curves & Surfaces.
Main goal of this project by woo jae sung is to make successive bridge-like structures based on parametric idea. The first step is to make a single component that reacts to the user inputs. The second step is to replicate the single component to get multiple components which behave under the same logic.
This is the second edition of grasshopper primer by Andrew Payne and Rajaa Issa. Rajaa is a developer at Robert McNeel and Associates and is the author of several other Rhino plugins including ArchCut and the ever popular PanelingTools.
Stone PolySphere installation, designed by Maurizio Barberio and Giuseppe Fallacara (New Fundamentals Research Group), investigates the potential of digital fabrication applied to the stone industry. Stone PolySphere is a lithic sphere with a diameter of 1.4 meters, composed by a massive hemisphere below and a stereotomic hemisphere above.
Conduit is an open source plug-in authored by Proving Ground. Conduit enables designers to create custom data visualizations and heads up displays that update with your parametric models.
