# 2- Wavy Facade 2

In this Paracourse lesson, we are going to model a wavy facade in Grasshopper. First, we are going to model the strips and then by using the curve attractor technique and some data management tricks we will model the louvers.

In this grasshopper definition, you can model a parabolic structure by defining only two points.

In this grasshopper definition, you can simulate agents following a curve and also control their properties and flocking parameters by using the Zebra plugin.

In this grasshopper definition, you can connect a series of meshes together be selecting the bridging faces.

In this grasshopper definition you can model a sphere by connecting two different series of strips together.

In this definition you can model a parametric chandelier in grasshopper and extract the curves for fabrication.

In this Grasshopper definition, you can model a parametric spiral staircase. You can control the rise and the number of steps.

In this advanced lesson, we are going to convert the relaxed mesh into a NURBS surface and learn how to penalize it using Weaverbird, Kangaroo, and Lunchbox.

In this grasshopper definition you can create a spiral from intersection of a series of twisted rectangles.

In this grasshopper definition you can create a recursive polyline which is connected and oriented by Simplex noise component from the 4dNoise plugin.

In this grasshopper definition you can generate random circles or polygons and connect them together to model a parametric surface.

In this grasshopper definition by connecting the interior edges of polygons and twisting them from both sides you can create a conical shape made of stripes.

In this grasshopper definition, you can simulate the movement of particles on a mesh by evaluating their position and applying a vector force.

In this grasshopper definition you can model a series of random rectangles and arrange them as a bookshelf.

In this grasshopper definition, we have used two parametric circles to generate these circular diamonds. This definition is a good example to learn how to use Dispatch in grasshopper.

In this grasshopper definition, we will use the Nursery plugin to simulate a force field which is actually a noise affecting a series of meshes.

In this Paracourse Lesson, we are going to model a Parametric Roof from scratch. First, we are going to model a simple rectangular plane for the base of the roof and then we are going to use a parametric curve to control the overall shape of the model.

In this grasshopper definition, you can model a parametric structure by defining an arc-like curve. Then you can Extract the details and use them for fabrication.

In this grasshopper definition you can create Parametric sleeves by morphing a single module to a series of twisted box from the pufferfish plugin.

In this grasshopper definition you can simulate differential growth, by using the SDplatform plug-in .

In this Grasshopper Definition, you can model an iso-surface mesh by using the Ngon plugin.

In this grasshopper definition we have used the kangaroo 2 Plugin combined with weaverbird to deform a mesh parametrically.

In this grasshopper definition by creating a series of circles in the X direction and connecting them together from the quarter of each circle, you can create a coil shape pipe.

In this grasshopper definition a simple flocking motion has been simulated by using the SDplatform plugin and by defining parametric forces.

In this grasshopper definition by using twisted boxes you can create different density maps from a single module which is imported from rhino.

1.jpgHi there! I have a question on making wavy facade on a looped surface (like the attached image) instead of a plane surface.

Since the attractor attracts all points at one direction (say either x or y-axis), how can I define the closest points go to the closest points??

Thank you!

Hi Angie

Please watch this tutorial for more info

For the distance, you can use the Geodesic component to find the shortest path on the surface and use the curve’s length for your rotation but be aware it’s a slow process
