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.

Animation & Sound

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will answer one of our user’s questions. The tutorial is in two sections. First I will explain how you can make animations in grasshopper and second we will talk about how to visualize sound in grasshopper

Import PDB

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will talk about the Import PDB tool and how you can use it to visualize a protein file. First, we download the PDB file from the www.rcsb.org   website. After that, you can import the PDB file in grasshopper and use the atom data to visualize the protein.

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.

Tween Curve

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.

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.

Facet Dome

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will explain how you can use the Facet Dome tool to produce Voronoi cells on a revolved surface. First we are going to produce the surface and then pull the voronoi cells on the surface and then make the frames.

What are these icons?

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will talk about one of our subscriber’s question. Emilio asked about the little icons you see when you right click on the component’s input or output. I will explain about them in this video.

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.

Per Frames

In this video tutorial I will use the Per frames tool to produce a parametric pattern on a curve in grasshopper. You will learn how to use the frames by deconstructing them and using their main vectors to move the origing of the planes.

Image attractor

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.

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.

Box Morph

In this Grasshopper tutorial we will use the Box Morph tool to morph a 3d module from the xy plane into a surface. By using the box morph technique you can design any complicated module and then morph with into your desired NURBS surface.
