Firefly offers a set of comprehensive software tools dedicated to bridging the gap between Grasshopper, (a free plug-in for Rhino) the Arduino microcontroller and other input/output devices. It allows near real-time data flow between the digital and physical worlds – enabling the possibility to explore virtual and physical prototypes with unprecedented fluidity.See More
As a member of the Grasshopper community and a graduate student representative for this faculty search committee, I strongly encourage you to consider this opportunity: UC Berkeley Structures + Emerging Building Technology The committee is seeking innovators in the field of architecture and structural engineering with a construction focus.

Biodynamic Structures is a two-week design workshop co-taught by the Emtech faculty at the AA and the faculty of Architecture and MEDIAlab at California College of the Arts, exploring active and passive systems in architectural design that respond to changing environmental and spatial needs. In its second year the workshop will delve more into the concepts of self-organization, emergence and systems behaviour in architecture, borrowing concepts and tools from biology. Associative modelling,…See More
"you can use the evaluate surface component (surface>analysis>evaluate surface) to get a normal vector and frame of the surface at any point. it may help to reparametrize the surface in order to evaluate it on a 0-1, 0-1 scale. the x direction…"
"not sure if this is still the place to make requests, but it should be helpful to have them in one place...
can the 3d text tag component be given a geometry output so it can be manipulated? this would open up the possibility to project text onto a…"
Thanks for your great response. I have done experiments with manually adding more random points within a voronoi cell to create voronoi's within voronoi's. I guess what I'm more interested in happening is setting up a system…"
"At the moment not. There is only 1 Voronoi component and it doesn't expose these functions.
If you start to ignore certain points in the set when making a voronoi diagram, for example by only considering nearby points, then the resulting…"
Is there anyway to set up the voronoi to find nearest points and use those to generate the cells. My students are replicating biological systems within grasshopper all semester and a lot of them are looking into ways of replicating venation…"
A single cell in a voronoi diagram can be constructed by cutting the (infinite) plane repeatedly with midlines and then tossing the piece that was cut off:
When there are 1000 points in the set, this method will have to be performed…"
