### Series

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.

### Contour

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.

### Tween Curve

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.

### Pencil Office

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.

### Tree column structure

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will use the closest points tool to produce a tree-like structure. first of all, I will make a freeform surface and divide it into panels and then we will produce parametric points for the location of the columns.

### Arboskin

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.

### Truchet Tiles

In this video, we will model the Truchet tiles in Grasshopper. First, we will take a look at the tiles and how Truchet tiles work. Then we will use dispatch to produce two sets of square cells. We will simply draw arcs from the midpoint of the edges to form the pattern.

### Sectioning Surface

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.

### Parametric Table

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

### Delaunay Mesh

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.

### Spiral Pattern

In this Spiral pattern grasshopper tutorial, I will show you how you can use a set of circles to produce a spiral pattern. First, we will talk about how dividing the circles will produce the base points and then by rotating the circles and connecting the points, we can produce the spirals.

- 13th June 2018
### Per Frames

In this video tutorial I will use the Per frames tool to produce a parametric pattern on a curve in grasshopper. You will learn how to use the frames by deconstructing them and using their main vectors to move the origing of the planes.

### Diamond Panels

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.

- 15th September 2018
### Parametric Facade

In this Parametric Facade tutorial, I will show you how you can use multiple dispatches to produce a parametric facade. First, we will use a simple curved surface for the facade and then we will use the Lunchbox plugin to panel it with triangles. Then we will work on the vertices of the triangles to finish the modeling.

### Lotus Temple

In this tutorial, we will model the Lotus Temple in Grasshopper. First, we will study the form and how it can be remodeled with a series of circles. Then we will produce the arcs which make the concrete shells of the temple. We will also model the outer part and finish this tutorial.

### Rotate Axis

In this video tutorial, I will explain how to use Rotate Axis tool to produce a linear kinetic origami surface. We will simply model a plane surface and use rotate axis to form the origami structure. then we will use a simple method to open and close the origami.

### ONE Teahouse

In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, I will model something similar to the ONE Teahouse / MINAX Architects. First, we will define a box and a sphere. Then we will scale NU the sphere so we can control the shape. If we divide the surface of the scaled Sphere into points, Project these points on to the Box and connect them we will have a series of parametric lines which we can finally turn them into a box.

### Evaluate Surface

In this video tutorial, I will explain how you can extract a parametric point from a surface by using the evaluate surface tool. First I will explain the u,v point concept and then I will use a MD slider tool to extract a point from a surface.

- 26th December 2017
### Voronoi

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…

### What are these icons?

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!
