### Metaball 2D

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.

### Parametric Furniture

In this Parametric Furniture tutorial, I will teach you how you can model a parametric chair in Grasshopper by defining two polylines. First, we will draw the polylines and then by modeling the base surface and by using the contour tool, we will make the curves.

### 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.

### 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.

### Mirror Curve

In this Grasshopper Tutorial I will show you how you can produce a parametric surface by using the Mirror curve tool and arc sections. We will use the sweep2 tool to make the surface and the Lunchbox pluging to produce the panels.

### Parametric Facade Tutorial

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.

### Absolute Towers

In this Rhino tutorial, I will show you how you can easily model the absolute towers with simply modeling the first floor and then making the tower with the Polar array tool. First, we model a cylinder and then we make the roof and finally the windows.

### Scale Nu

In this grasshopper tutorial I will talk about the Scale NU tool and how you can use it to scale a set of rectangles non uniformly. First we will array a square and then define a rotated plane to scale the squares diagonally. We will use point attractors to define the weight of scale.

### Voronoi Cell

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will talk about the Voronoi cell component and how you can combine it with weaverbird to produce smooth mesh. First, we will talk about the center point and the neighbors and then by defining the bounding box, you can produce the Voronoi cell.

- 29th September 2018
### Rotating Curves

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.

### 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.
