Triangular Subdivision Grasshopper3d Definition

Triangular Subdivision

In this Grasshopper Definition by using the Anemone plugin you can model a recursive pattern that connects each corner of the face to the center. You can also Mesh+ & Weaverbird to prepare a mesh or a Nurbs surface for the division process.

Islamic Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

Islamic Pattern #1

In this definition you can model a parametric Islamic Pattern which is based on connecting the center of Triangular grid to a point located on edges and then connect that point to their neighboring corner.

Entropy: Unpacking the form through post digital making


The focus of this project by Evelina Kourteva and Dermott Mc Meel is to investigate ‘digital design’ through the juxtaposition of a human driven and digitally supported creative process.

Asymptotic Timber Gridshell

Asymptotic Gridshell

Timelapse from a workshop building an asymptotic timber gridshell in the shape of an Enneper surface. It was organised in the course Digital Tools – Parametric Design for students at the program Architecture and Engineering at Chalmers University.

Panther Grasshopper3d Plugin


Panther by Panther Technologies combines the most versatile Jewelry Builders with an Interactive Gallery bringing premeditated parts to go into construction of a complete final piece.

A Five-axis Robotic Motion Controller for Designers

Robotics for Designers

This paper by Andrew Payne proposes the use of a new set of software tools, called Firefly, paired with a low-cost five-axis robotic motion controller.  This serves as a new means for customized tool path creation and realtime evaluation of parametric designs.

Fern Pull Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Fern Pull

In this Kinetic Art tutorial, we are going to remodel a Kinetic Sculpture by Anthony Howe called Fern Pull. First, we are going to model the rotating Pipes and then we will put the Circles on the back of them to finish this tutorial.

Origami kinetic Table

Origami kinetic Table

To design a kinetic table Haeyoung Kim chose origami as a concept. Paper contains fibers and they are entangled with each other which make them possible to stay together without any additional medium.

Particle Noise Grasshopper3d Definition

Particle Noise

In this grasshopper definition you can make particles move through a Perlin noise effect made from Noise 4d Plugin and a loop which is generated by Anemone.

4D Noise Grasshopper3d Plugin

4D Noise

4D Noise component by creates Perlin and Simplex noise. This add-on forms smooth 4D Perlin noise and Simlex noise, two very well-known smooth noise functions investigated by Ken Perlin.

Weaving Enclosure. Material computation and novel forms of crafting

Weaving Enclosure

This paper by Roberto Naboni and Luca Breseghello presents a computationally based methodology arising from the application of weaving techniques for the design and construction of an experimental architectural system, Weaving Enclosure.

Pendulum Casa V Kinetic Sculpture

Pendulum Casa V

Pendulum Casa V by ART+COM Studio is a kinetic sculpture created for the private residence of an art collector in Mexico City. Situated in an inner entrance area of the house, the sculpture moves through a vertical void between the ground and first floors.

Filzfelt Scale Panels

In this Paracourse Lesson we are going to remodel the filzfelt scale wall panels in grasshopper and make them parametric.

hypercube (tesseract) grasshopper3d Definition


In this grasshopper definition you can model the shadow of a hypercube(tesseract). In geometry, a hypercube is an n-dimensional analogue of a square and a cube.

Form-Finding and Design Potentials of Bending-Active Plate Structures

Bending-Active Plates

This article by Simon Schleicher, Andrew Rastetter, Riccardo La Magna, Andreas Schönbrunner, Nicola Haberbosch and Jan Knippers, investigates the form-finding and design potentials of bending-active plate structures.

Doughnut-shaped television studio in Beijing is enclosed in a latticed shell


Wrapped in a latticed glass and steel skin, this ring-shaped building by architecture studio BIAD UFO provides the new headquarters for Chinese broadcaster Phoenix Television. Beijing Institute of Architectural Design and UnForbidden office designed this Center.

Curves Cocoon Grasshopper3d Definition

Curves Cocoon

In this grasshopper definition we have used the Cocoon plugin to create a voxelized mesh with a set of custom curves and a series of parameters which can change the parametric shape.

Truchet Tile Pattern Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Truchet Tile Pattern

In this Paracourse Lesson we are going to model a complete 3d Truchet tiles based on pipes. First we are going to explain the logic behind the pattern and then we will model it from scratch.

Pre-Rationalized Parametric Designing of Roof Shells Formed by Repetitive Modules of Catalan Surfaces

Parametric Roof Shells

The aim of this study by Jolanta Dzwierzynska and Aleksandra Prokopska is to develop an original, methodical and practical approach to the early stages of parametric design of roof shells formed by repetitive modules of Catalan surfaces.

Deciduous 3D rinted Pavilion


Designed by MEAN* for Dubai International Financial Center, Deciduous is a 3D printed pavilion that invites us to revisit our relationship with nature, through an experience reminiscent of walking through an abstracted botanical form.

Parakeet Grasshopper3d Plugin


Parakeet by Esmaeil is a collection of components focusing in Algorithmic Pattern Generation; it offers a Unique and easy-to-use approach that Generates Geometrical and Natural Patterns/Networks.

Optimizing Digital Organic Freeform Modelling for Fabrication by Using Parameterization With Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastics

Freeform Modelling

This paper by Jan-Ruben Fischer describes which adjustments to the original design were required to take the step from “digital physicality” to “physical digitality” to realize a constructive and economically successful implementation.
