Radial Mechanism Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Radial Mechanism

In this Grasshopper tutorial, we are going to model a Radial mechanism which translates a circle up and down. This mechanism is similar to the Pantadome System developed by Mamoru KAWAGUCHI. You can change the size of the linkages.

Shelf Mechanism Grasshopper3d Tutorial Kinetic Architecture

7- Shelf Mechanism

In this Paracourse Lesson we are going to teach you how you can use basic geometric rules to model an opening/closing mechanism which is basically a shelf which folds with a scissor like structure and a handle.

Arched Scissors Grasshopper3d Definition Anemone Plugin

Arched Scissors

In this Grasshopper definition you can model a parametric opening and closing scissor which can be controlled by changing the pin location. The location of the pins will change the overall mechanism which is from a straight line to an arced one.

Rotating Mechanism Grasshopper3d Definition

Rotating Mechanism

In this grasshopper definition you can model a simple parametric rotating mechanism. you can actually change the handle’s length , width and also control the rotation speed.

Mozi Arm Spinner

Mozi Arm Spinner

This spinner toy by Mozi slips over your arms and spins in mesmerizing patterns across it. Roll it from arm to arm or friend to friend. Then, once it’s made its rounds, just fold it flat by turning it counterclockwise between your hands. Its smooth, caterpillar-like movement works best on bare skin. 

Branched Scissor Mechanisms

Scissor Mechanisms

Henry Segerman is putting a new spin on the subject with his emphasis on mathematical art. Instead of teaching math the old-fashioned way (i.e. boring old pen and paper), Segerman makes use of 3D printing videos to illustrate how mathematical concepts like geometry and symmetry work.
