### Carnaval Chair

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.

### Intersect Crv/Crv

In this Grasshopper Tutorial I will use the Intersect Crv/Crv tool to produce a parametric structure. First I will linear Array a line and then intersect it with two set of parametric polylines. Then I will move the intersection to produce the parametric model.

### Bow Building

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

### Parametric Bench

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will model a parametric bench by using three different sections and a curve as the bench’s rail. First I will orient the sections on the rail and then I will sweep to produce the results. In the end, we will make the sections with per frames.

### RMIT Design Hub

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.

### Voronoi Cell

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will talk about the Voronoi cell component and how you can combine it with weaverbird to produce smooth mesh. First, we will talk about the center point and the neighbors and then by defining the bounding box, you can produce the Voronoi cell.

### Expo 2000 Japan

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.

### 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.

### Sine/Cosine

In this video tutorial, I will show how you can use sine or cosine tool to produce parametric curves in grasshopper. First we will do a bit of research about the sine curve and then we will use the combination of sine and cosine to produce advanced curves.

### Graph Mapper

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will explain about the Graph Mapper tool and how you can implement it in your design. First, we will learn how the Range tool can make data for Graph mapper and then we will use the graph mapper to change the distribution.

### Contour Table #1

In this collaborative video with Kinetic Architecture, I teach how you can model the contour table with another method

- 19th January 2019
### 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.

### Pipe Variable

In this video tutorial I will explain how you can use Pipe variable and isotrim to produce a parametric surface. First we will use the pipe variable tool to produce a pipe which its radius changes at different locations and then we…

### Rotating Curves

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can start with a simple base curve and then scale and rotate it to produce a parametric rotating curve. First, we will scale the base curve from 1 to 0.2 and then we will move it in Z direction with a series and at the end, we will rotate it with a range of numbers.

### 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.

### Truchet Tiles

In this video, we will model the Truchet tiles in Grasshopper. First, we will take a look at the tiles and how Truchet tiles work. Then we will use dispatch to produce two sets of square cells. We will simply draw arcs from the midpoint of the edges to form the pattern.

### 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.

### Geometric Cake

In this tutorial, we will model the Dinara Kasko algorithmic cake in Grasshopper. First, we will start with a series of square cells and then by moving them up, scaling and rotating them, we will form the base curves. Then we will use the grasshopper attractor techniques to connect the scale factor to the attractor and finish the tutorial.

### Maelstrom Component

In this Grasshopper Tutorial, We will model an Optical illusion Pattern based on a Jonathan Harris Video. First, we will model the curves by simply making a polar array of lines and then deform them by using the Maelstrom Component in Grasshopper. Then we will use the Bezier Span curve tool to produce a span between the main curves and control the tangents.
