In this video tutorial, I will show how you can use “random” to produce random numbers and use them in your modeling. We will use random numbers for extruding a set of panels in their normal direction and learn how to change the random numbers.
In this grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can start with a simple base curve and then scale and rotate it to produce a parametric rotating curve. First, we will scale the base curve from 1 to 0.2 and then we will move it in Z direction with a series and at the end, we will rotate it with a range of numbers.
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.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Lesson, I will show you how to rotate a series of surfaces around their edges and then control how many of the starting and ending ones have a zero rotation. First, we will divide a surface into sections and then extract the edge and finally rotate the panels around the edge.
In this Laser Cut Earring Design tutorial, I will show you how to make a parametric model for nautilus Earrings. First, we will model the base surface with strips and then by using the flow command, we will bend the surface from a baseline into a NURBS curve. This will give us more control over the finished model.
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 video tutorial, I will explain how to use Contour component in Grasshopper to produce a parametric facade. We will use rhino to model the opening and deformation and finally use contour to produce the curves and sections.
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 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 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.
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 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 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 Grasshopper tutorial, I will model a parametric table and show you how you can use a simple trick to get help from Rhino to model the table easier. First I will model a simple solid in Rhino and then I will use Cage edit and Grasshopper to find the best design for the table
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.
This is the first video in the “Parametric Modeling & Design” series. In this video, we will have a quick review of the Arboskin Project. First, we will talk about how the project has been made and look at some details. Then we will talk about a simple Grasshopper algorithm and how you can model the pyramid and slice it with a rotating plane.
In this tutorial, I will model a Parametric Brick Wall in Grasshopper and I will show you how you can use the horizontal frames to orient a brick on a freeform surface and make the Parametric Brick Wall.
In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, I will model a series of panels which change their size based on point attractors. First, we will use the lunchbox plugin to make the facade and then we use the attractor technique to scale the panels in one direction and finish the Parametric Facade.
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 Tutorial, I will be 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…
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 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 Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can panel a surface with lunchbox. First I will show you how to make different surfaces in Rhino with 5 different techniques and then I will show you how to panel them. These 5 short tutorials will help you learn Lunchbox for grasshopper easier!
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.
