Truchet Tiles Patterns

In this grasshopper definition you can generate a parametric surface with different truchet patterns. By using Jitter to change the index of the Twisted boxes you can model different patterns

Random Facade

In this Paracourse Lesson we are going to model a parametric facade made by random triangles. First we will model the basics and then we will extract the windows and the frames and orient them on the ground for the final step.

Parakeet Plugin Grasshopper3d Definition

Parakeet Plugin #7

In this grasshopper definition by offsetting and scaling one of the Parakeet’s Tiling components (patterns) you can create different patterns. this grasshopper definition uses Parakeet and Weaverbird plugins.

Pufferfish Grasshopper3d Plugin


Pufferfish by ekimroyrp is a set of 305 components which focuses on Tweens, Blends, Morphs, Averages, Transformations, & Interpolations. Pufferfish mainly uses parameters and factors for inputs for more custom control over operations like tweens.

Rigid foldable Origami structures: parametric modelling with Grasshopper

Rigid Foldable Origami

The purpose of this paper by Giulia Curletto is to provide a guideline to design Origami structures using parametric methodology and to describe drawing and structural analysis steps applied to two specific cases: Waterbomb and Yoshimura Origami.

Swarm Light Responsive Light Installation

Swarm Light

The ‘Swarm Light’ by rAndom International is an experimental light installation with a real ‚collective consciousness’ that subtly reacts to the viewer’s audible presence.

Rolling Sphere Spirograph Grasshopper3d Definition

Rolling Sphere Spirograph

In this grasshopper definition by creating relative tangent spheres which revolve around each other you can create different spirograph patterns in 3d space you can also use Dendro plugin to convert these complex curve to volume.

Dendro Grasshopper3d Plugin


Dendro by ryein is a volumetric modeling plug-in for Grasshopper built on top of the OpenVDB library. It provides multiple ways to wrap points, curves, and meshes as a volumetric data type.

Developing Robotic 3D Printing System for Informed Material Deposition

Robotic 3D Printing

This paper by Sina Mostafavi, Henriette Bier, Serban Bodea and Maria Anton discusses the development of an informed Design-to-Robotic-Production (D2RP) system for additive manufacturing.

3D Printing Mobius Nautilus

Mobius Nautilus

Mobius Nautilus by Joaquin Baldwin is a compound mobius strip created out of 36 interlocking mobius strips. They weave and interlock perfectly through the spaces left between them.

Rolling Circles Spirograph Grasshopper3d Definition

Rolling Circles Spirograph

In this grasshopper definition by creating relative tangent circles which revolve around each other and create different spirograph patterns.

Rising Chair Grasshopper3d Definition

Rising Chair

In this definition we have remodeled the Rising Chair by Robert van Embricqs in Grasshopper3d. First we have made a rectangle and then by two parametric curves the bending of the parts will be defined.

Smooth Mesh Tower Grasshopper3d Definition

Smooth Mesh Tower

In this definition you can use Mesh+ & Weaverbird plugin to smooth a parametric rotating tower and control the bumps.

Waffle Bookshelf Grasshopper3d Definition

Waffle Bookshelf

In this definition you can make a simple Waffle bookshelf without using any plugins, First, the 3d boxes are modeled based on thickness and depth and then the details are modeled in several steps.

The Use of Simulation for Creating Folding Structures

Folding Structures

In this article by Asli Agirbas which presents a particular course, it was intended that all stages should be experienced, from the modeling in the virtual environment to the digital fabrication.

Firewall Interactive Art Installation


Firewall is an interactive art installation created by Mike Allison and Aaron Sherwood. When the membrane is touched, the lines dance like fire, rippling in reaction to the movement of the user’s hand.

Fractal Tree Generator Grasshopper3d Tutorial

Fractal Tree Generator

In this Fractal Tree Generator tutorial, we will use Grasshopper3d to model a parametric Fractal tree which can generate different tree models. First, we will use a plane and an arc to define the angle and length of the branches.

Perlin Noise Sphere Grasshopper3d Definition

Perlin Noise Sphere

In this definition we will use Perlin noise as the base deformation of a sphere. Perlin noise is a type of gradient noise developed by Ken Perlin in 1983.

Integration of acoustics in parametric architectural design

Parametric Acoustics

This paper by Dr Thomas Scelo describes the collaborative approach to develop a single algorithm for both acoustic and architectural form generation.
