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 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, we will use Mesh+ and Weaverbird to model a weaving pattern on a Nurbs surface. First, we will model a Surface in Rhino using Sweep1 and then we will use Mesh+ to model the pattern. Finally, we will use weaverbird to smooth the results and make the weaving pattern.
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 you can produce a metaball by a set of point and charges. First we will define the points and then by using the Metaball(t) Custom tool we will give charge to these points and then we will define…
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.
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 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!
Orient Direction is a tool which can perform 3 different transformations on geometry. You can Move, Rotate and Scale. In this example, I will show how you can do this by a point and a set of rectangles and use point attractor to change…
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 Rhino Grasshopper Lesson, I will show you how to produce a parametric brick wall in Rhino. First we will explore the options of Brick Design plugin and how you can use it to produce a parametric wall and then we will use attractors to deform our brick wall with points and curves and images.
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 grasshopper tutorial First, I will model a parametric twisting tower and I’ll explain how you can make a series of scaled roofs. Then I will show you how you can use the cluster input/output tools to create user object from the model.
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 thisRhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model something similar to the Canton Tower. First we will define 3 ellipses and then rotate them to make the tower’s sections. After lofting the sections we can use the Lunchbox plugin to make the structure and by using the Dispatch we will extract two different groups of the structure.
In this Grasshopper Tutorial, We will model an Optical illusion Pattern based on a Jonathan Harris Video. First, we will model the curves by simply making a polar array of lines and then deform them by using the Maelstrom Component in Grasshopper. Then we will use the Bezier Span curve tool to produce a span between the main curves and control the tangents.
In this tutorial, we will model a simple Islamic geometric pattern by defining Concentric Circles and model the baselines. First, we will divide those circles and define the pattern of connection between the division points. Finally, by changing the circle’s radiuses, we can model a simple parametric Islamic geometric pattern in Grasshopper.
In this Grasshopper tutorial we will use the Box Morph tool to morph a 3d module from the xy plane into a surface. By using the box morph technique you can design any complicated module and then morph with into your desired NURBS surface.
In this Rhino tutorial, I will explain the Eve Explode Plugin and how you can use it to move objects based on a point in Rhino. This plugin works on Rhino 5 so be sure to download the Plugin and Rhino 5 from the link below
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 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 talk about the Import PDB tool and how you can use it to visualize a protein file. First, we download the PDB file from the www.rcsb.org website. After that, you can import the PDB file in grasshopper and use the atom data to visualize the protein.
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!
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we are going to model a Parametric Reuleaux Triangle and make a pattern by dividing the edges, connecting the points based on relative paths and produce a new pattern by changing the polygon, division number & other parameters which define the geometry.
