In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, we are going to model the Islamic Art Museum at Louvre. First, we are going to model a parametric NURBS surface by dividing the edges of the rectangle and moving the point up to make the edge curves. Then we are going to use Lunchbox to make the panels and Spaceframe structure.
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.
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 tutorial, I will show how easily you can use series to produce parametric geometries. First we will talk about the inputs of the Series tool and then we will use it to deform a set of points parametrically.
In this Parametric Design Video, I’m going to explain the Voronoi DIagram based on a project located in Mexico which uses the Voronoi cells in the facade Design. First We will study the facade and how it’s fabricated and then we will remodel something similar in Grasshopper.
In this grasshopper tutorial I will talk about the populate geometry tool and how you can use it to produce a set of voronoi cells on a freeform surface. First we will make a rectangular boundary based on our freeform surface and then we will make the voronoi cells.
In this Rhino tutorial, I will show you how you can model the 2000 Japan Pavilion (by Shigeru Ban) with Rhino. First, we will make a parametric surface with record history and then we will make the pipes by contour.
In this Video tutorial, I will show how you can use “Brep/Plane” intersection tool to produce a simple but complicated pattern on a surface. first we will define parametric curves on the surface and then we will use Per frames to intersect with the surface.
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.
This laser cut design video is going to show you how you can make a parametric pendant lamp in Grasshopper and use the algorithm to produce dxf files for laser cutting. You can easily bake the boundaries and save the file as dxf files and fabricate the Lamp.
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 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 grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use the 4point surface tool to fold a surface inspired by the al bahar facade mechanism. First, we will study the techniques we can use to model the module and then we will make it parametric with grasshopper.
In this video tutorial, I will talk about how you can use sweep1 to produce a parametric surface. first we will define a curve for the rail parameter and then we will orient a section in to the curve and finally sweep the section with the rail to produce the result.
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 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 second we will talk about how to visualize sound in grasshopper
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 metaball Grasshopper tutorial, I will teach you how you can produce a freeform column model that merge together and form a metaball. First, we will produce the point charges and then based on a profile curve we will produce the metaball curves.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, I will model the Bow Building in Calgary. First I’m going to use the plan picture to draw the curves in Rhino and then I’m going to extrude the facade surfaces and panel them using Lunchbox and Weaverbird
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.
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 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.
In this rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model something similar to the Pencil Office facade. First, we will draw a simple line which will define the height of the facade and then by using evaluate curve and graph mapper divide the line with a non-linear distribution. In the end, we will talk about the “Relative Item” component and how it can help us connect the point together.
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.
