# What are these icons?

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will talk about one of our subscriber’s question. Emilio asked about the little icons you see when you right click on the component’s input or output. I will explain about them in this video.

### 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.

### Earrings Design #2

In this Laser Cut Earring Design tutorial, I will show you how to make a parametric model for nautilus Earrings. First, we will model the base surface with strips and then by using the flow command, we will bend the surface from a baseline into a NURBS curve. This will give us more control over the finished model.

### 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.

- 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.
