### 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.

### Parametric Building

In this Parametric Building tutorial, I will teach you how to model a parametric facade in Grasshopper. First I will divide the surface into divisions and then convert the facade to mesh and use weaverbird to extrude the Mesh. finally, the point attractors will produce a parametric building.

### Parametric Stars

In this Point Attractor tutorial, we will use a point to deform a star shape. First, we will use a base surface, divide it into rectangular panels and then study the basics behind the star pattern. We will use the point attractor to move the star points in their lines and change their shapes.

### Weaverbird Grasshopper

In this video tutorial, I will use three different plugins (Weaverbird, Cocoon, and Kangaroo) which will take your modeling to a whole new level! First, we will model our solid mesh with Cocoon and then we will refine the mesh with Kangaroo and at the end, we use weaverbird to give our mesh some power.

### Confluence Park

In this video tutorial, I will model the confluence park in grasshopper. First I will explain the geometrical constraints of the base polygon of the structure and then I will make it parametric. Then we will work till we finish the surface.

### 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.

### 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.

### Facet Dome

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.

### 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.

### 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.

### Import PDB

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.

### 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.

- 15th April 2019
### Islamic Art Museum(Louvre)

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.

### Islamic Star Pattern

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.

### 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.

### Gradient

In this tutorial, I will explain how you can use Gradient to color a set of panels based on their height. First we will produce the panels by isotrim and then we will extract the panels center and use the z component to define the height of the panels. Finally we will use….
