In this rhino grasshopper tutorial,we have used Anemone to make a twisting recursive fractal in which the module is based on a polygon moving, rotating and scaling at the same time.
Mesh NGon Methods for Grasshopper and Rhino 6 by petras_vestartas: NGon Create, Vertex, Edge, Face Adjacency queries, Subdivide, Planarize, Transform, Utilities. Essentially it is a plug-in for polygonal meshes.
In this definition you can model a fractal based on a square which builds two smaller squares on one of its edges.
This paper by Gernot Riether and Knox Jolly is about the fabrication process of the DesCours pavilion. The construction process will be used to show how parametric software, such as Grasshopper can inform fabrication and material systems.
The form for the façade by Crawford Architects was derived from metal oxidation patterns inspired by those found on Zahner’s campus. A computer based algorithm converted the sketch’s tonal values into a 3-dimensional digital surface model of the façade.
Making use of Grasshopper uto developed an interface named GECO, which offers a direct link between Rhino/Grasshopper models and Ecotect. The Plugin allows you to export complex geometries very quickly and evaluate your design in Ecotect.
The first part of this paper by Achim Menges focuses on the explanation of the theoretical framework of ICD’s approach to design computation, which finds its conceptual roots in the integrative processes of biological becoming.
Awakened 1 by Breakfast is made up of 168 Brixels (a mechanical medium BREAKFAST created), each with a mirrored and black side. The piece is an exploration of human interaction with a robotic medium.
In this grasshopper definition you can create a geometry and morph it on a sphere. You can also join the meshes together. This definition is using these plugins : Pufferfish , Mesh + and Weaverbird.
In this grasshopper definition by using the Parakeet Plugin you can model a radial scissor mechanism by defining the number of elements , width , size and also the radius of the holes which connect the elements together.
This research by David Stephen Panya, Taehoon Kim and Seungyeon Choo aims to analyze the motion aspect of interactive facades design and simplify the conceptual and performance design process through parametric strategies.
Neri Oxman and MIT have developed programmable water-based biocomposites for digital design and fabrication. Named Aguahoja, the project has exhibited both a pavilion and a series of artifacts constructed from molecular components.
In this grasshopper definition, you can create a set of polygons in the Z direction and scale them by using the noise components from Noise 4d plugin. You can also thicken the polygons with Fatten.
Crystallon by aporterfield is an open source project for creating lattice structures using Rhino and Grasshopper3D. Each tool is left as a cluster which can be opened and modified at will, in the spirit of open source.
This paper by Jane Scott describes the framework behind the development of a series of knitted prototypes inspired by the biomimetic model of the hygromorph. Three moisture responsive pieces are described which use properties of wood veneer.
Cozi studio debuts with textural 3D printed focus lamps. Selective laser sintering is an additive 3D printing process that uses a high-power laser to sinter powdered material — typically plastic or metal — into a three-dimensional form.
This paper by Pamela Dychengbeng Chua and Lee Fu Hui presents an innovative approach to the design and fabrication of three-dimensional objects from single-piece flat sheets, inspired by the origami technique of twist-closing.
In this definition you can model a parametric 3D wall pattern based on scaling edges of a rectangle grid and also moving the center of these edges.
In this grasshopper definition by applying forces and noise, you can model a natural movement of particles. This definition is using Anemone and 4D Noise plugin.
This article by Ryan Luke Johns and Nicholas Foley, illustrates a materially efﬁcient technique for designing and fabricating freeform surfaces within the constraints of irregular wood ﬂitches. The process utilizes a robotically operated bandsaw.
S2OSB by BINAA – Building INnovation Arts Architecture is a pioneering management building, headquarters and conference hall. Uniting the vision of the client, it is also an iconic structure in the area, engaging people into a new way of looking.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we are going to model a parametric rotating tower which we will rotate on one of its edges. We will also extrude the base curves with a series to get the rotating tower.
Helio Curve is a kinetic sculpture by Reuben Margolin created for Hyundai Motor Company. It has two mechanical drives located 65 feet apart the ground. These produce continuously varying motion, which is translated through strings.
Fox by petras_vestartas includes series of algorithms for Graphs, Aggregations, Iso-surfaces. It was developed for Aggregation and Graph-Based Modelling Workshop at Vilnius Academy of Arts (VAA).
This paper by Jorge Christie introduces a novel approach for generating self-forming textile hybrid structures based on the actuation of pre-stressed textiles with in-space robotic 3D printing.
Steampunk is a pavilion constructed from hardwood using hand tools augmented with the precision of intelligent holographic guides. Designed by Gwyllim Jahn, Cameron Newnham (Fologram), Soomeen Hahm Design and Igor Pantic with Format Engineers.
In this definition you can make a fractal rotating polygon by using the Anemone plugin. First we are going to explode the curve to its segments and then evaluate a point on the edges. This recursive algorithm will produce the final rotating polygons.
In this Grasshopper definition you can use the Anemone Plugin to rotate a tower around itself. First we will define the rotation and scaling factor and then we will extrude the base square to model the tower.
This paper by Ying Wang and and Florian Heinzelmann demonstrates the work on a kinetic mirror façade, which is able to reflect the daylight via mirrors in order to convey messages.
Created by designer Carolien Laro, the seating chattels are really made from wood and they will really flex when you sit on them.
