algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Octopus is a plug-in for applying evolutionary principles to parametric design and problem solving. It allows the search for many goals at once, producing a range of optimized trade-off solutions between the extremes of each goal.
Also see octopus.E for custom evolutionary algorithms.

Octopus introduces multiple fitness values to the optimization. The best trade-offs between those objectives are searched, producing a set of possible optimum solutions that ideally reach from one extreme trade-off to the other.
Based on SPEA-2 and HypE from ETH Zürich and David Rutten's Galapagos User Interface. Developed by Robert Vierlinger in cooperation with Christoph Zimmel, karamba3d.com and Bollinger+Grohmann Engineers.
Some examples are provided here.
New commented examples and a brief manual are provided in the download of octopus on food4rhino.

Usually we minimize/maximize certain objective(s).But if I want to set it on specific number (let's say illuminance of 300 lux), how do I do that in Octopus? Thank youContinue

Hello everyone,I am trying to use Octopus for an optimization where I calculate one solution in Grasshopper - the second is sent to Excel via TT Toolbox and calculated there and after it sent back to…Continue
