In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, I will model the rotating circular panels of the RMIT Design Hub Building. First, we will take a look at the building’s facade and how its constructed. Then we will make the circles in Rhino and then export them into Grasshopper and start rotating them based on a point attractor. We will also model the rotating axis of the windows.
In this Video tutorial, I will explain how you can use the Octree component in grasshopper. You can easily make a parametric octree with random points and then use the random reduce component to delete the boxes which are created by octree.
In this Rhino Grasshopper stair tutorial we will use a simple loft surface to model a series of parametric stairs. First we will model the base curves in Rhino and use the loft command in Grasshopper to make the surface. Then we will use the “Contour” command to make the stairs curves and use an offset component combined with etrusion to finish the model.
In this grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use the 4point surface tool to fold a surface inspired by the al bahar facade mechanism. First, we will study the techniques we can use to model the module and then we will make it parametric with grasshopper.
In this Grasshopper Tutorial, I will teach you how to use the twist command in Rhino 6. I will explain how twist works with a simple twisting Box around a parametric Axis
In this Video Tutorial, I will explain how to use dispatch with a simple example. First we will dive into the concept of dispatching geometry with true and false and then we will use a Gene Pool to make an advanced dispatch for the facade panels.
In this parametric design video, we will have a review of the EKKO installation structure. First, we will take a look at the project and how it’s made and then we will remodel it in Rhino Grasshopper.
In this Video tutorial, I will explain how you can use the Bend Deform component in grasshopper. You can easily bend geometry with this tool. First we will use a simple Arc SED tool to produce the arc and then we will bend a box with the Bend Deform tool.
In this Rhino tutorial, I will show you how you can model the 2000 Japan Pavilion (by Shigeru Ban) with Rhino. First, we will make a parametric surface with record history and then we will make the pipes by contour.
In this video tutorial, I will show how you can use “random” to produce random numbers and use them in your modeling. We will use random numbers for extruding a set of panels in their normal direction and learn how to change the random numbers.
In this Laser Cut Earring Design tutorial, I will show you how to make a parametric model for nautilus Earrings. First, we will model the base surface with strips and then by using the flow command, we will bend the surface from a baseline into a NURBS curve. This will give us more control over the finished model.
In this Grasshopper tutorial, we produce a Voronoi Pattern based on Sunflower seed distribution. The technique we will use is the Maelstrom component to twist a series of straight lines so we’ll not use the actual Fibonacci sequence to produce the Voronoi cells but it’s a quick trick you can use to produce a pattern similar to it.
In this Grasshopper Kangaroo tutorial we will study how we can collide a series of particles with a curve. First we will produce a series of random points and define them as spheres for collision and then we will use curve collide to detect the collison.
In this grasshopper tutorial, we will make a parametric surface by using the tween curve tool and a repeating pattern. First, we learn how to make a series of curves between two curves and then we move them by a repeating pattern to make a surface.
In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will model the Carnaval chair. First I will explain the curves and how we can model them with NURBS curves. Then I will go for the sections to actually model the chair. We will also model the wires at the end.
In this Parametric Facade tutorial, I will show you how you can use multiple dispatches to produce a parametric facade. First, we will use a simple curved surface for the facade and then we will use the Lunchbox plugin to panel it with triangles. Then we will work on the vertices of the triangles to finish the modeling.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, I will model the Bow Building in Calgary. First I’m going to use the plan picture to draw the curves in Rhino and then I’m going to extrude the facade surfaces and panel them using Lunchbox and Weaverbird
In this Contour Table tutorial, I will show you how easy you can model a table from a base surface and then contour it to produce the solids. You can deform the table with cage edit to make some deformation on the main model.
In this video tutorial, I will explain how to use Rotate Axis tool to produce a linear kinetic origami surface. We will simply model a plane surface and use rotate axis to form the origami structure. then we will use a simple method to open and close the origami.
In thisPufferfish Grasshopper tutorial, we will use the Tween Surface tool to produce a series of surfaces which morph from one surface to another. First, we will use the point attractor technique to produce the deformation on the plane surface and then we will use the pufferfish plugin to produce the tween surfaces.
In this Grasshopper tutorial, we are going to model a parametric Celtic repeating pattern. First, we are going to explain how we can model the base module and then we are going to make a triangular grid, use list item to choose the right corners, make circles with the same radius and then use the region difference to produce the base module. Then we will use a triangular grid to orient the base module on it and finish the tutorial.
In this tutorial, I will explain how you can use Gradient to color a set of panels based on their height. First we will produce the panels by isotrim and then we will extract the panels center and use the z component to define the height of the panels. Finally we will use….
In this Parametric Architecture video we will take a look at the Schüco Parametric System and how it works. Then we will model the panels in Grasshopper by producing a base surface and then dividing the surface in to panels. We will also use a range of numbers combine by Graph mapper to produce a sine wave.
