### Polar Array

In this video tutorial you will learn how to use the polar array tool in grasshopper to produce a simple 2d pattern. The polar array will manipulate a simple curve in a circular pattern and finally we will combine the curves in to one single pattern.

### Parametric Ring

In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model a Parametric Ring. First, we will model the base curve based on Polar points and then give it a rectangular section and finish the model with a sweep1.

### Image Sampler

In this video tutorial, I will explain how to use image sampler to produce a complex form based on an image in grasshopper. The image sampler tool will use u,v point mapping to extract the brightness and we can use it to manipulate geometry.

### Lincoln Zoo Pavilion

In this Grasshopper tutorial we will model the Lincoln Zoo Pavilion. First I will explain how you can model the curves , mirror it and finally model it as a solid. By technique you can produce a sine curve on a freeform surface.

### Parametric Facade

In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, I will model a series of panels which change their size based on point attractors. First, we will use the lunchbox plugin to make the facade and then we use the attractor technique to scale the panels in one direction and finish the Parametric Facade.

### Grasshopper Attractor

This Grasshopper Attractor tutorial is about you how you can use a point attractor to produce a smooth mesh with Weaverbird, First I will divide the surface into segments and then by converting the NURBS surface to mesh and by using Weaverbird I will produce the bumps.

### Scale Nu

In this grasshopper tutorial I will talk about the Scale NU tool and how you can use it to scale a set of rectangles non uniformly. First we will array a square and then define a rotated plane to scale the squares diagonally. We will use point attractors to define the weight of scale.

### Space Truss Structure 1

In this Grasshopper Tutorial, I will talk about the Space Truss Structure 1 from the Lunchbox plugin. First I will make a freeform Surface and then I will use this tool to convert it to a Space Truss Structure and at the end, you will learn how you can use grasshopper to model some of the structure’s details.

### ONE Teahouse

In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, I will model something similar to the ONE Teahouse / MINAX Architects. First, we will define a box and a sphere. Then we will scale NU the sphere so we can control the shape. If we divide the surface of the scaled Sphere into points, Project these points on to the Box and connect them we will have a series of parametric lines which we can finally turn them into a box.
