algorithmic modeling for Rhino

The current fashion passion for all that is translucent is getting increasingly difficult to disguise. Heels boots, the sunglasses, through the coats, the transparency game is to win more supporters - retail and luxury included.

Acrylic and PVC are, according to The Independent, the starting players for that, given its impermeability, the pieces that use these materials can be the best allies for raids against the rain that persists in delaying the arrival in big spring.(…

Creating hallways on a stadium

Hello everyone,

This can either be very simple or very complex but either way I'm not able to figure it out.

I'm creating a definition in which, starting with a geometry on the plane, it creates automatically the grandstands surrounding it. This is working quite well but I'm having lots of troubles creating the vertical staircases.

I've tried already perpendicular lines from the starting…

UserObject for Colorblind-safe (and grayscale-safe) Gradients

In matplotlib, there are 4 good options for colorblind-safe gradients. These 4 gradients are also safe for printing in grayscale. They are: Magma, Inferno, Plasma, Viridis.

To make them more accessible to the grasshopper…

Fabrication modeling for cladding panels of double curved exoskeleton structure

Our team is wrapping up fabrication modeling for cladding panels of a double curved exoskeleton structure of a large hotel/casino in Asia. 

The entire model was generated by Grasshopper using our in-house developed "Elefront" plugin.

We have modeled roughly 24.000 unique panels including sub-framing, brackets, fasteners, joint covers etc.

Fabrication documentation went straight from the…

I can´t see results.


Today I have some problems with grasshopper.

I made annual sDA analysis. Yesterday it was working fine. I can´t see the results. Firstly grasshopper warmed with "Let honeybee fly" even though it is the newest version. Then I run a couple of results and I can´t see result even though I have turned off preview and hidden objects.

I can´t figure it out......…

Calculating Inflection Points

The non-Python part of the definition translates a cubic bezier curve so that P0 is at (0,0,0) and P4 is at (x, 0, 0). This way the whole math is a lot simpler. (The result is a value for t...) Since a nurbs curve split at its' GrevillePoints gives a bunch of cubic bezier curves this also works for nurbs curves! I think there is a bug in there, because it sometimes doesn't work, but the derivatives were calculated by Mathematica...:…

Simulation Workflow - Radiation / Surface

Hi All,
You can calculate annual radiation reaching the building with the use of many grasshopper plugins. The graphical results generated with use of these plugins are particularly helpful in following…

(@)AT Rapid Paneling Tool

Hi All,

I've been working on a GH Paneling definition/UserObject that puts the LunchBox's Panels in Rapid & handy use.

I've used the definition in many quick concept projects, Hope you'll find it useful.

Thanks to for Lunchbox &  Andrew Heumann for his Human and MetaHopper plugins!

Download the User Object, here:…

Proving Ground Conduit

Proving Ground has just released Conduit, an open-source Grasshopper plug-in for data visualization and creating heads up displays. There you'll find a "click-once" installer, which should load it up onto your machine.

For now,…

Sharing some Bending Experience...

K1 comes with examples. One is 'Kangaroo\kangaroo099\03_Bending\bending7', showing how to control the tangents at start/end point, by anchoring the 1st, 2nd, second to last and last point. The problem doing this, is that the distance between those points, first/second and second to last/last, will be fixed. So, this way you can change the RestLength of all segments, while running the…

center of gravity of "N" masses


I wonder if there is a component that calculates the center of gravity of "N" given volumes with same density ( for the moment ).

I thought volumes analysis components under surface's tag could have been the solution but they seem to be working on single volumes…

Circular truss, spacing


I need some help. I am still new to grasshopper so facing some difficulty. I have this tube-like shape with intersecting horizontal elements rotating around the shape. I  began by dividing the circles, and interpolating the points (with shifting) to create lines, which then I gave a thickness. I am trying to space out these elements on one of the sides, close to an attractor point. The idea is that these would be like louvers, blocking the sun on one side, (the louvers become…

Serie Question

Hello everyone.

I have a question about the series.

I have a series of points and I would like that it does not exceed a vertical line which is set to position X.

This, despite the fact that the slider controlling the series gives me points beyond this vertical line.

Thank you for your solutions, I put the grasshoper file attachment. The series of vertical development and the right not to be exceeded are circled in…

cheap tricks - mesh color by normal direction (akin to normal map)

Found it almost by accident while working on something entirely different, and maybe not exactly the same kind of mapping you would find, say, in 3D studio or Blender, but a fast and cheap way to test your mesh normal orientation.

Enough foreplay, here it is:

All the first…
