# Equilateral Triangles

This tutorial by I See Arts explains how to draw equilateral triangle with straight lines pattern creates geometrical triangles inside a circle.

# Centralist Arcs

In this grasshopper definition a way of creating a desired number of arcs will be demonstrated using the 3 point arc component. In order to do so, 3 sets of points will be required. One set is only one point in the center which all arcs are connected to.

# Audio to Architecture

Polina Timchenko in her thesis “Audio to Architecture: House Music as a Form Generator” is going to explore the idea that every house music component can be translated into geometry with the use of parametric design techniques.

# Tile Aggregation

In this grasshopper definition you can aggregate a custom module (Tile) by defining junctions using Fox Plugin.

# Timber Structures

This thesis by Alexandra Adelle Hinkel Cheng presents an example of a project executed in a co-rationalized manner through architectural and structural collaboration, using both digitally-integrated and analog models, for the design and construction of solid timber shells structures.

# Integrated Algorithmic Design

This thesis by Renata Alves Castelo Branco aims to explore the advantages an algorithmic approach can bring to the design process, and investigate, at the same time, how to bridge the gap between the different tools with which architecture currently operates

Giuseppe Ridolfi and Arman Saberi’s students at The University of Florence designed an interactive smart facade using Rhinoceros 3D, Grasshopper 3D and Kangaroo Physics.

# Parametric Structures

The aim of the thesis by Daniel Wallin and Martin Wasberg was to investigate if the use of parametric design tools from both architects and structural engineers could be a way of making the design process more eﬀective. This thesis also include testing the structural plug-ins of the parametric design tools.

# Triangle Contour

In this grasshopper definition you can generate contour of triangles which are perpendicular to base surface and height of each triangle follow’s custom path (curve).

# Incessant Replication

This thesis by Ron Aasholm studies the process of promptly harnessing a computational design methodology and applies it to floor plan design. A specific evolutionary algorithm, found in Galapagos, is analysed and applied as it used in the model demonstration.

# 3D Cellular Automata

This video by Softology is about 3d cellular automata. Visions of Chaos is a professional high end software application for Windows. It is simple enough for people who do not understand the mathematics behind it, but advanced enough for fractal enthusiasts to tweak and customise to their needs.

# Vorospace

This definition creates a mesh model of all the connections between the centers of the 3D voronoi cells and the adjacent cells centers. This definition uses following plugins: Mesh Edit _Mesh Tools _Weaverbird

# Computational Urban Design

This thesis by Saeran Vasanthakumar introduces a design tool that attempts to optimize urban energy needs through the mass-customization of urban typology. Developing low-energy, high-density urban typology is a critical goal for cities given current energy consumption and urban growth trajectories.

# Complex Field

In this grasshopper definition you can create field which is made by grid of points and thicken them by Variable sweep in Heteroptera plugin.

# Performance through Thickfolds

Performance through thickfolds by Torsten Sack-Nielsen approaches climate-responsive behaviours through shape, materialisation and kinematics. In this PhD project, folding is investigated phenomenologically, exploratively as well as experimentally, to exploit and document on how climate-responsive performance potentials can be utilised in architecture.

# Stalactite

TETRO+A and WHITEvoid present its immense light structure ‘STALACTITE’ which floats above the audience of the bright brussels festival 2018 in belgium. it invites to ‘switch off’ the irrelevant and concentrate on the bliss of the pure audio-visual statement.

# Voronoi Attractor

In this grasshopper definition you can change size of voronoi cell by changing attractor location.

# Structural Evaluation

The goal of this research by Lukáš Kurilla is to raise interest of architects in structural behavior of design in its conceptual phase. Therefore, this research deals with the development of a middleware – a bridging tool between the ﬁnite element (FE) solver (OOFEM) and the architectural modeller (Rhino3D).

# Topological Metamaterials

Researchers at the University of Michigan have created a topological metamaterial that allows the material to switch between being hard as steel and soft as rubber. The researchers discovered a way to compose a metamaterial that can be easily manipulated to increase the stiffness of its surface by orders of magnitude— the difference between rubber and steel.

# Breeding Tower

In this grasshopper definition you can generate mass of strips by defining a path (Curve) and connecting them with perpendicular lines between them. This grasshopper definition is made by Heteroptera Plugin.

# Design for Deconstruction

This Master’s thesis by Anastasios Kokkos is focused on the ambiguous topic concept of Designing for Deconstruction and its application within the construction industry with a computational approach.

# Universal Bracket

Paul Robinson has been working on  a universal bracket that can be used not only for any frequency geodesic dome but many other structures as well. A single universal bracket that can join any number of struts at any angle.

# Freeform Architecture

In this study by Viktoria Henriksson and Maria Hult, rationalization in terms of different surface discretization methods has been a main focus. It also explores multi-objective optimization. The structure is designed parametrically in the Rhinoceros plugin Grasshopper and structurally analysed with the FE add-on Karamba.

# Sphere Triangular Paneling

In this definition you can panelize any mesh (triangular subdivision) by Weaverbird plugin and moving panels due to one of triangle’s side.

# َScience Toys

This video by PhysicsFun would show you 3 minutes of oddly satisfying scientific curiosities feauturing various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!

# Multi Objective Design

The aim of this thesis by Robert Vierlinger is the development of basic structures for a flexible generation and optimization framework for practical use in the sense of a continuously accompanying design explorer, in which parameterization is adaptable and objective functions are changeable at any time during the design process.

# Venation

In this Grasshopper definition you can venate (Network of curve among points) on any geometry by using parakeet plugin and fattener component.

# Conical Pattern

In this Grasshopper definition you can generate conical pattern by defining a curve due to perpendicular lines that divide on the curve.

# Enneper Morph

In this Grasshopper Definition you can morph any geometry inside deformed cubic structure by using Pufferfish Plugin. The cubic structure is deformed by Enneper surface which is already made by Lunchbox plugin.

# Mobius Dipyramid

In this Grasshopper Definition you can make a series of Dipyramids on a Mobius strip by using the Weaverbird and Parakeet Plugin.
