generative modeling for Rhino
Hello I have recently came across this kind of form and was wondering whether someone could point me in good direction on how to model it using grasshopper?
What is this kind of form called??
search relaxed surfaces.
and have a look at the Kangaroo Plug-in for Grasshopper
thanks a lot!!is it easy to work on it???can i control the size of the void space??
thx so much!!!ur links is so helpful to me!!
p.s. coz i am a new user,do u know any gd websites in learning grasshopper/hav grasshopper tutorials/definitions???Just recommend some to me,many thanks!!!:)
thank you so much!!u r so helpful!!!:)
I remember seeing that project around a few years back. It might be featured as a case in the Architectural Geometry book by Bentley actually. As far as I can recall it actually uses pretty straight forward polygon modelling combined with a subdivision surface method to smooth the modelled polygon control cage (see this andthis).
Although Grasshopper is becoming better at handling mesh construction and modelling you might want to consider packages such as 3ds Max, Maya, Modo or Blender for doing the initial cage (they all have most of the standard tools one would except from a polygon modeller). For Rhino there is also the funky fusion between subdivision surfaces and NURBS called T-Splines (gave it a spin a few weeks back, has some pretty decent polygon modelling tools actually).
