# Basics of Grasshopper

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will be talking about how you can make a button for launching Grasshopper and how to get ready for the course. We will dive into the basics of grasshopper interface and data management

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 lesson, I will show how you can use the Kangaroo2 Plugin to deform a network of lines. First, we will make a network of lines on a simple flat surface and then we will use the Kangaroo plugin to define them as springs and then we will deform them based on the location of the forces!

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 show how grafting can help you to model parametric hexagons and use point attractors to change the height and scale of them. First, we will talk about grids and then we will step into the point attractor technique and move the hexagons based on their distance from centers.

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 Grasshopper tutorial, I will teach you how to use sorting data to produce a spiral based surface and then convert it to smooth Mesh. First I will produce a surface by revolving a profile curve and then we will divide the surface with isotrim. By connecting the corners we can produce the spirals.

In this Grasshopper lesson, I will talk about managing output data with a turning tower example. First I,m going to model the tower and then I will talk about data management and the different components you can use to extract or delete data.

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will talk about dispatching in Grasshopper. First, we will use simple true/false Boolean patterns to understand the dispatch tool and then we will go on more advanced examples like point attractors, combining logics, extracting naked vertices and....

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use the peacock plugin to model parametric rings. This tutorial will study four different parametric rings, first is based on width and thickness, second is based on a profile revolved around

You can produce a parametric 3d panel with this definition. By changing the location of the point attractors and also changing the Graph mapper distribution you can produce different patterns. You can also control the distance between the panels.

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will model the evolution Door and show you how you can use simple geometrical assumptions to model a mechanism in Grasshopper. First we will study the Movement and then we will simulate it.

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will model a parametric surface and then use the millipede plugin to optimize the structure based on maximum displacement.

in this grasshopper tutorial, I will model the RoundSquare Clock designed by Žiga Gorjup and show you how you can model the curves. First I will explain the steps you should take to produce the curves and then I will model the center hole of the clock.

In this grasshopper tutorial I will explain about two different techniques to model mathematical surfaces: Isomesh & Parametric. First I will explain how you can model the Isomesh surfaces in Grasshopper with the Monolith plugin and then I will Model the parametric surfaces with mathematical equations.

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will show you some techniques which you can use to modify the rail curve. By modifying the rail curve you can also design new parametric models.

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use intersections to design the sections of a parametric model. You can use this technique to control your sections.

In this grasshopper tutorial, you will learn how to use multiple sections and a curved path to produce a parametric model. First I will explain how we can orient the section into the perpendicular planes and then we will model the rest.

In this grasshopper tutorial, you will learn how to use a single section and a curved path to produce a parametric model. First I will explain how we can orient the section into the curve and then we will model the rest.

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will model a facade louver system based on scaling. First I will divide the facade into louvers and then I will extract the lines and scale them based on the height of the surface. then we will remodel the louvers with another technique and use point attractor and image attractor to affect the facade.

In this grasshopper tutorial, we will learn how to use a set of curves for attraction. You will learn how to use advanced grasshopper techniques to analyze the distance between the point grids and the attractors.
