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 anemone grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use anemone to produce a simple hexagonal fractal in grasshopper. First I will use anemone to deconstruct a hexagon into its segments and then we will use the “point on curve” tool to extract …
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.
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.
In this grasshopper tutorial, I will talk about the Klein surface tool in the lunchbox plugin. First, we will understand the parameters of the form and then we will isotrim and panels to convert the surface into panels.
In this grasshopper tutorial, I will model an Islamic star pattern and show you how you can make it parametric! First, we will use the polygons in contact method to mode the grid and then we make the patterns.
In this Parametric Building tutorial, I will teach you how to model a parametric facade in Grasshopper. First I will divide the surface into divisions and then convert the facade to mesh and use weaverbird to extrude the Mesh. finally, the point attractors will produce a parametric building.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model a perforated parametric facade in Grasshopper and with the help of Lunchbox Plugin. First, we will model the surface and then divide them into triangular panels. By using the attractor point technique we will make the panels scale differently across the facade.
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.
In this Lunchbox grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can make complete diamond panels on a closed NURBS surface. First, we will use the lunchbox plugin to produce the panels and then we fix the triangle panels by combining them into diamonds and finally combine them back together.
In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will teach you how you can model a weave pattern in grasshopper. First, we will model a basic pattern and explain how the curves relate and then we will array the unit to produce the final pattern. Then we will use the distance between the curves to produce the results.
In this Paneling Tools Grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use the grid attractors and the cellulate grid tool to produce a series of deforming circles based on point or curve attractors
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, I’m going to teach you how to make a series of sections from a surface. First, we will model the surface in Rhino and then we will use contour to make the sections.
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.
In this video tutorial, I will explain how you can produce a metaball by a set of point and charges. First we will define the points and then by using the Metaball(t) Custom tool we will give charge to these points and then we will define…
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 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.
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.
In this collaborative video with Kinetic Architecture, I teach how you can model the contour table with another method
In this Video Tutorial, I will explain how to use dispatch with a simple example. First we will dive into the concept of dispatching geometry with true and false and then we will use a Gene Pool to make an advanced dispatch for the facade panels.
In this Laser Cut Earring Design tutorial, I will show you how to make a parametric model for Rhombus Earrings. First, we will model the base polygon and make it parametric by using evaluate curve and then we will define the sections and offset the boundaries to make the final model.
In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will model the Bejing Water Cube in Grasshopper. First I will explain the steps we have to take to reach the final model and then I will explain the steps one by one. We will start with a shell box and then use Voronoi3d to produce the results.
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.
In this Rhino tutorial, I will show you how you can easily model the Boiler suit facade in Rhino. First I will explain about the main panels and how we can model them and then I will model the corner panels and entrance.
