Category: Programming / Scripting
Prerequisites: basic Rhino knowledge; prior programming experience is not required but helpful.
Intended for: Students, graduate students, researchers, professionals
The master class seeks to introduce Rhino Python, the new cross-platform scripting environment for Rhino 5 (Mac and PC), which is based upon the popular and successful scripting language Python. The two day master class will cover basic python programming skills including language basics and programming paradigms in the context of showcase design applications. Also the master class will compare and show the differences to other Rhino programming environments such as RhinoScript or Grasshopper. The participants will learn how to create their own Rhino commands, how to develop own function libraries and object classes. In addition concepts on the organization of code in larger python development projects will be shared and discussed.
Day 1 Learning the Language Basics : The python language syntax will be explained in depth and demonstrated in Rhino. Participants will be given several small tasks to apply the newly gained knowledge.
Day 2 Development of a Larger Script : More advanced topics in the field of code development will be addressed. The participants choose a task from their daily practice. There will be individual support.
