generative modeling for Rhino
I have been playing with recording the slider activity and fitness values as Galapagos runs a solution. The parameter changes are recorded using the 'record' component and then sent to a MySQL table.
It is then possible to query the database and easily investigate the entire range of solutions offered by the evolutionary solver.
For example, I can search for all genomes with a fitness > x... or all genomes with a gene = y. Or I can display multiple…Continue

We have been working on a method of interacting with the Grasshopper Canvas with intuitive, multi-touch gestures registered by the RGBD camera on the Microsoft Kinect. The Kinect depth resolution is enough to detect touch events on an arbitrary surface, so we've recreated a giant canvas using a projector,…Continue

Well... as part of learning is also showing and discussing, I have uploaded this chunk of code that actually works.
It came out from the idea of developing an example where the theoretical capabilities of programming with Visual Studio/SharpDevelop over the VB/C# IDE provided in GH would become somewhat more obvious.
However, in this very example the result is quite the opposite, as the imported references (one thing that is not possible to do using the VB component), are not…Continue
The release is a minor update which re-organizes a few categories and also includes a new generic MySQL Command component for executing SQL operations not included in other components.
The main reason for this release was to introduce…Continue

I tried more than once to find the scripts from Tooling from Aranda/LAsch without success. Supposedly all of it would be available at their website (www.arandalasch.com/tooling), but the website is "being updated" since a very long time.
I was wondering if one of you have the scripts and would share it with us.
We've finally increased to full scale and are currently waiting on testing of the performance mockup at the Construction Research Lab in Miami (shown in the image). Throughout this project Grasshopper has been of great use to us in designing, documenting, and in this case fabricating the project. We were…Continue

There was a request for the basic definition I used to make this image.
Choose an image, and live trace it in illustrator. Expand the live trace, and save the illustrator file. Export the live trace as a jpg or other bitmap format.
In Rhino, import the image with the PictureFrame command. Then import the illustrator file and scale the curves to the…Continue
