generative modeling for Rhino
I just finished putting together a beta version of a little project. It's a tweetbot powered by a grasshopper definition. The bot transforms a cube according to a series of operations you specify, and then tweets a picture of the resulting form. There are currently 10 formal operations that the bot understands:
shearA (Shear angular)…

Since David Rutten added to GH the ability to set a default text panel background color, I’ve had my panels set to be white instead of the default bright yellow. But in all my old definitions, the panels remain yellow, and it drives me nuts. I was going through and changing them manually when it occurred to me that there was a much better way, based on a trick I saw David mention in a…Continue

Hey all - just added a post documenting my GH work for the artist Sarah Oppenheimer. Check it out here!
Hey all -
While working on a project I came upon the need to do some unit conversion within GH, so I decided to write a script to handle this. I've attached it as a user object. It takes two strings, defining the input and output unit systems, in the form of "mm" or "in^2" or "yd^3" etc. It will then output the necessary conversion factor. It also optionally accepts a list of values, and will convert them for you if they are present.
A word of caution: I…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
Here is the definition used to create the video seen here. Requires Kangaroo.

UPDATED TO WORK WITH VERSION 0.8.0010
Lately, in some of my work I have been investigating unfolding complex forms with Grasshopper. The newest release of Grasshopper enables the use of Compound Transformations, which makes it possible to quite efficiently unfold strips of planar surfaces. In the past I have had to use pepakura or other similar utilities to perform the…Continue
