This paper by Mohammad Kouchaki, Mohammadjavad Mahdavinejad, Parastoo Zali and Shahab Ahmadi, investigates innovative implementation of bricks in kinetic architecture.

Collide Sphere Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Collide Sphere

In this Kangaroo Grasshopper tutorial, we will use a simple method of a collision that collides a series of spheres with a solid, based on gravity! We can also add a floor to the definition and let the particles bounce on the floor!

Apollonian Fractal Grasshoper3d Definition

Apollonian Fractal

In this definition we have used the Anemone plugin to model the Apolloian fractal. In mathematics, an Apollonian gasket or Apollonian net is a fractal generated starting from a triple of circles, each tangent to the other two, and successively filling in more circles, each tangent to another three.

Sun Tracking Facade

Sun Tracking Facade

This thesis by Mahzad Tashakori describes the development of a computer controlled sun-tracking device model that aims at improving the environmental performance of a building facade system. During the process, advanced computational modeling and simulation tools, such as Grasshopper and Ecotect, were utilized.

Hilbert Curve Fractal Grasshopper3d Definition

Hilbert Curve Fractal

This grasshopper definition is generated by putting simple scaling and rotating into a loop through Anemone Plugin, however it is quite different from the method that mathematician generate the Hilbert Curve fractal. A Hilbert curve is a continuous fractal space-filling curve.

Parametric Origami Adaptable temporary buildings

Parametric Origami

In this article Heike Matcha and Ante Ljubas employ the possibilities of parametric modeling software and customized mass production machinery to develop a design for adaptable multifunctional temporary medium size buildings made from recyclable lightweight materials and build a prototype from cardboard.

Space Frame Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Space Frame

In this Lunchbox Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model a space frame structure by defining a freeform surface. Then we will project it onto the ground and use the lunchbox “space truss structure 2” to model the lines.

Arched Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

Arched Pattern

In this definition a set of gene pools are used to create the main surface and then data tree has been used to extract three sets of curves to create the pattern.

Erwin Hauer Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

Erwin Hauer Pattern

In this grasshopper definition we will model an Erwin Hauer pattern based on the “Still Facing Infinity” exhibition.

Non-Linear Isotrim Grasshopper3d Definition

Non-Linear Isotrim

In this exercise you can learn how to divide a Nurbs surface into a non-linear division by using graphs.

Spiral Spikes Grasshopper Definition

Spiral Spikes

In this definition by using a parametric helix and modeling a series of triangles on the path you can make spiral spikes. You can also change the graphs to get different results.

Sierpinski Pyramid Grasshopper Definition

Sierpinski Pyramid

In this example you can model a 3d sierpinski fractal by using the recrusive behaviour of the Anemone plugin and then you can use the weaverbird plugin to smooth the results.

Building Skins parametric design tools and BIM platforms

Building Skins

This paper by Wissam Wahbeh will discuss the recent use of parametric design tools as Grasshopper and DynamoBIM within BIM process. Furthermore, how the geometrical solutions could be arranged to optimize the interactivity of the final models.

Pinch & Spread Box

In this definition you can learn how to pinch or spread a mesh box with random points by using the Pufferfish Plugin + Weaverbird.

The Parametric Facade

The Parametric Facade

Digital design and fabrication tools now allow us to create highly flexible building façade systems that can be customized for different con- texts as well as optimized for particular performance objectives. This thesis by Peter C. Graham develops a prototype for a flexible façade system using parametric modeling tools.
