### Voronoi Pattern Sunflower

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.

### Voronoi3d

In this video tutorial, I will show you how you can use the Voronoi3d tool and how you can use it to produce Voronoi cells on a 3d NURBS model. You can easily produce 3d voronoi cells in grasshopper with the Voronoi3d tool and random distributed points.

### Spiral Pattern

In this Spiral pattern grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use a set of circles to produce a spiral pattern. First, we will talk about how dividing the circles will produce the base points and then by rotating the circles and connecting the points, we can produce the spirals.

### Geometric Pattern

In this grasshopper tutorial, we will model a parametric pattern by using Hexagons to produce stars. First, we will study the pattern and how it can be modeled parametrically and then we will make the hexagon grid, extract the corners and put the polygon on the points to make the pattern. We will also study a way of grouping the cells and extract the boundaries.

### Octree

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.

### 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.

### Arduino Tutorial For Beginners

In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, I’m going to show you how you can (write/read) data (to/from) Arduino in Grasshopper. First, we will install the Firefly plugin and then we will work with reading and writing function to connect with Arduino.

### Parametric Arcs

In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, I will show you how to make a series of parametric Arcs. So first we are going to talk about the Arc component and the inputs and how we can control them and then we are going to dive into a more advanced modeling technique.

### Orient Direction

Orient Direction is a tool which can perform 3 different transformations on geometry. You can Move, Rotate and Scale. In this example, I will show how you can do this by a point and a set of rectangles and use point attractor to change…

### Celtic Repeating Pattern

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.

### Random

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.

### Parametric Brick Wall

In this tutorial, I will model a Parametric Brick Wall in Grasshopper and I will show you how you can use the horizontal frames to orient a brick on a freeform surface and make the Parametric Brick Wall.

- 9th July 2018
### 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.

### Cairo Tessellation

In this Grasshopper Mesh+ tutorial, we will use the Cairo Tiling component to produce a Cairo Tessellation. First, we will use the component to model the base mesh and then we will use the Weaverbird Plugin to give the lines some thickness.

- 28th May 2019
### Parametric Stairs

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.

### Parametric Facade Tutorial

In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model a perforated parametric facade in Grasshopper and with the help of Lunchbox Plugin. First, we will model the surface and then divide them into triangular panels. By using the attractor point technique we will make the panels scale differently across the facade.

### Parametric Wall

In this tutorial, we will use the point attractor technique to model a parametric wall. first, we will define the base surface and study how we can use point attractors to produce a wavy surface. Then we will make a solid and use contour to finalize the parametric wall.

### Contour

In this video tutorial, I will explain how to use Contour component in Grasshopper to produce a parametric facade. We will use rhino to model the opening and deformation and finally use contour to produce the curves and sections.

### Evolution Tower

In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial & for the Architecture Design Series we are going to model the Evolution Tower. First, we will define a box in Rhino and then import it in Grasshopper Then we will twist the box by defining the axis line and the degree of rotation.

### Earrings Design #2

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.
