Latest Grasshopper tutorials

In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will use the Delaunay Mesh component to model different smooth meshes. First, we will define random points and connect them bt Delaunay mesh and then by using the Weaverbird plugin, we will smooth the final result.

This Rhino Grasshopper tutorial is a small example of how you can use grasshopper and the lunchbox plugin to easily model a tower. First, we will model the surface of the tower using three circles then we will use lunchbox to produce the diagrid structure and finally we will model the quad panels and finish the tutorial.

In this Grasshopper Voronoi attractor tutorial, I will show you how you can produce point attractors for Voronoi cells. First, we will make the desired boundaries and then populate points in them to increase the number of Voronoi cells.

Latest Rhino tutorials

In this Rhino tutorial, I will explain the Eve Explode Plugin and how you can use it to move objects based on a point in Rhino. This plugin works on Rhino 5 so be sure to download the Plugin and Rhino 5 from the link below

In this rhino paneling tools tutorial, I will show you how you can use the paneling tools plugin to produce different panels on to a freeform surface. First I will talk about the Grids and how they work in paneling tools and then we will study different paneling techniques.

In this Contour Table tutorial, I will show you how easy you can model a table from a base surface and then contour it to produce the solids. You can deform the table with cage edit to make some deformation on the main model.

Latest Definitions

In this grasshopper definition tutorial, I will show you how you can produce a stair with a base polyline or curve. We will use a stair definition (by forest hell) to produce the results and then model the railings.

By using this grasshopper definition You can easily produce a parametric bench based on two or more sections and a single path. Simply define the inputs and the section solids of the bench will be produced. You can then use the curve sections to produce the bench.

By using this grasshopper definition You can easily produce Voronoi cells on any NURBS surface. You can first choose your surface and then assign the scaling factor to scale the cells. By giving a thickness you can make a solid result.

Latest Grasshopper Commands

In this Grasshopper Tutorial, I will talk about the Fillet edge command (Rhino 6) which you can find in the Surface, Utility menu. First I will explain how you can make a polysurface and then fillet a face by choosing it with list item and then extract the filleted surfaces.

In this Grasshopper Tutorial, I will talk about the substrate command which you can find in the Mesh, Triangulation menu. First I will explain the inputs and then I will combine it with surface split and random extrusion to show you a simple example of how you can use it.

In this Grasshopper Tutorial, I will teach you how to use the twist command in Rhino 6. I will explain how twist works with a simple twisting Box around a parametric Axis

Important Tutorials

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will teach you the grasshopper basics for beginners to advanced. First I will talk about the Grasshopper canvas and then I will teach you how you can use the grasshopper tools to produce a smooth mesh model.

In this rhino paneling tools tutorial, I will show you how you can use the paneling tools plugin to produce different panels on to a freeform surface. First I will talk about the Grids and how they work in paneling tools and then we will study different paneling techniques

In this tutorial, I will talk about the little icons you see when you right click on the component’s input or output. These icons will help you manage your Data. We will cover flatten, graft, simplify in this video and show you how they work with some simple examples and learn how data management works!

Do you want to optimize your models in Grasshopper? In this video, I will show you the basics of the Galapagos tool in Grasshopper which is an optimization component and how you can use it to design more efficiently! This tool will help you to define optimization goals & design smarter!

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will answer one of our YouTube channel users about the kangaroo plugin. First, we will talk about the basics of kangaroo Physics and then we will remodel a parametric tensile surface in kangaroo2.

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.

In this Ladybug Grasshopper tutorial, I will show you the basics. First I will show you how to install Ladybug and run the components. Then I will explain the energy plus weather files (EPW) and how they give us the most important information about temperature, humidity, and wind.

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 video tutorial, I will use three different plugins (Weaverbird, Cocoon, and Kangaroo) which will take your modeling to a whole new level! First, we will model our solid mesh with Cocoon and then we will refine the mesh with Kangaroo and at the end, we use weaverbird to give our mesh some power!

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.

In this firefly 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 then we will talk about how to visualize sound in grasshopper

This Grasshopper Attractor tutorial is about you how you can use a point attractor to produce a smooth mesh with Weaverbird, First I will divide the surface into segments and then by converting the NURBS surface to mesh and by using Weaverbird I will produce the bumps.

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.

These video series will help you to learn Grasshopper commands by teaching you a small example and talking about what the inputs or outputs are and how you can handle them to design parametrically!

We also have a video series for Rhino. You can check them out here and learn how you can design parametrically in Rhino and start to understand the algorithms and steps you have to take so, you can get ready to model with Grasshopper.

One of the best ways you can get started with grasshopper is to work with ready-to-use definitions! These definitions are actually grasshopper algorithms which help you with more complicated tasks! Learn how to use them here!
