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.

What is Grasshopper3d? With our Rhino Grasshopper Tutorials, you can learn Grasshopper faster and easier! Learning to think parametrically is a hard-won skill, we will help you!
In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, we will model a series of shape-changing elements which can be used as a parametric roof. First, we will define 3 points and by changing the location of the points we can make a polyline. We will use the tween curve component to produce the middle curves and then we will thicken them
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, we are going to model a parametric Celtic repeating pattern. First, we are going to explain how we can model the base module and then we are going to make a triangular grid, use list item to choose the right corners, make circles with the same radius and then use the region difference to produce the base module. Then we will use a triangular grid to orient the base module on it and finish the tutorial.
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.
If you are new and want to get started with the tutorials you can watch this introduction video to learn about the tips and tricks you can use to make the Grasshopper Canvas easier to work with! you can also download the Bifocals plugin to see the component name on the top and learn easier!
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 Grasshopper tutorial, we will study the Koch snowflake Fractal Pattern and how we can model it from scratch. First, we study how the pattern is made and then we will use an equilateral triangle, explode it to its segments and make another equilateral triangle on the mid part of its edges.
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 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 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.
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 tutorial, we will model the Dinara Kasko algorithmic cake in Grasshopper. First, we will start with a series of square cells and then by moving them up, scaling and rotating them, we will form the base curves. Then we will use the grasshopper attractor techniques to connect the scale factor to the attractor and finish the tutorial.
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 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.
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 we will model the Lincoln Zoo Pavilion. First I will explain how you can model the curves , mirror it and finally model it as a solid. By technique you can produce a sine curve on a freeform surface.
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 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 Grasshopper Tutorial, I will teach you how to use the twist command in Rhino 6. I will explain how twist works with a simple twisting Box around a parametric Axis
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…
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model a Parametric Ring. First, we will model the base curve based on Polar points and then give it a rectangular section and finish the model with a sweep1.
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.
