has released a series of conceptual primers related to core data and geometry types as well as data manipulation on our newly redesigned website, modeLab
. Each primer contains a concise concept and description within an example Grasshopper definition. More primers and related material to follow. Stay tuned. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Continuing to explore the work of Rinus Roelufs
, I had some progress with the selfintersecting Moebius band.
The holes that permits the surface to weave into itself are now circular. The definition is not all that parametric yet, meaning you can only change the size of the moebius, the size of the holes and whether the moebius band should be twisted… Continue

Trying to learn a bit about mathematical surfaces and how to build them in GH using the expression editor. This was a pretty interesting one I came across on the Internet of a form called an Umbilic Torus. It's like a Moebius Strip in that it only has one edge, but it is a 3D form.
This definition also puts to good use a method for creating tree data from a single list, a problem I had that I got some assistance on over on the old Google Group from David Rutten and… Continue

This definition allows us to apply affine transformations (translation, rotation, scaling) on objects more than once.
The results can be interesting:

If you know parametric surface well -- or to be more specific, you know how to construct 3D surfaces using parametric equations -- it is a smooth transition from mathematical tools (such as Mathcad or Mathematica) to Grasshopper. In Mathcad, the equation for a parametric surface is:
For those who love spirograph may find it familiar. In Grasshopper, the definition looks like this:…

A Definition can consist of many different kinds of objects, but in order to get started you only need to familiarize yourself with two of them:
Parameters contain data, meaning that they store stuff. Components contain actions, meaning that they do stuff. The following image shows some of the possible objects you are likely to encounter in a History Definition:…

The Main Dialog
Once you have loaded the plugin, the _Grasshopper command will display the main Grasshopper window:
This interface contains a number of different elements, most of which will be very familiar to Rhino users:
1.The window title bar
2.The main menu bar
4.The canvas toolbar
5.The canvas itself
6.The status bar
7.The remote control panel
