In this Grasshopper course lesson, I will optimize a building base on radiation. First I'm going to define the algorithm for making the building twist while controlling the orientation. Then we are going to connect the building to ladybug and optimize it for a 3month period based on maximum total radiation and using Galapagos.

In this Grasshopper course lesson, I will show how you can use the image sample to produce pixel art based on brightness or RGB. First, we will use the brightness to produce the resulting mesh and then we will dive into the RGB world.

In this Grasshopper Course Lesson, I will model a series of parametric rings with beautiful 3d patterns. First, I will explain how to model the base surface and then I will show you step by step how you can make different patterns between them.

In this Grasshopper Course lesson, I will use the image sampler and combine it with Voronoi cells. Basically, this will help you understand how to analyze images brightness for geometry transformations.

In this Tutorial, I will show you how you can use the Voronoi command in Grasshopper and how you can use it to produce the Voronoi cells. First we will talk about the random nature of voronoi cells and then we will use populate...

In this lesson, I will talk about a technique which you can use to fabricate a freeform surface with paper or cardboard. First I will explain the restrictions for the Geometry and then I will make the sections which the panels will sit on. We will also talk about simple nesting in Grasshopper.

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will show how you can use metaball and the Cocoon Plugin to produce voxel models. The base of this tutorial is to teach you how you can use the voxel modeling technique to model complicated forms.

In this lesson, I will talk about flipping a matrix for data management and how partition can handle data into groups. First, we will take a look at grids and how they are in groups of data and why we need to flatten, flip matrix and partition our data

In this Course definition, you can make a series of curve attractor on a wall surface and then make sections to fabricate the final model. You can also switch between the 3d model and sections and also make the sections curves ready for fabrication.

In this Laser cut design video, I have made a definition to produce a parametric pattern for laser cutting. First I will explain the inputs and how you can change them to change the base pattern and in the end, you can give thickness to your design.
