algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I'm currently in the process of wrapping my head around GitHub. Seeing as how I'm now back in academia I thought this might be a good chance to share some code, for once :)
CITA recently helped conduct the Amphibious Hamburg workshop at the AAC in Hamburg co-tutored by GMP Architects, SBP Engineers and terrific guest tutors including our very own David Rutten and Daniel Piker (thanks again!). The workshop was focused on tensile membrane design for an Olympic swimming pool enclosure. The pre-developed Grasshopper definitions were heavily dependent on Kangaroo and GHPython. For the analysis of form found membrane meshes a couple of custom GHPython components were quickly developed for respectively curvature and drainage analysis (both critical factors in membrane design).
In order to test out GitHub I have uploaded (or pushed I guess!) the source code to both these components and a definition in which they have been implemented. I should note that the curvature analysis is purely based on a quickly "made up" logic (described in the component documentation) and that the drainage analysis is based on Benjamin Golders concept and Remy's VB code found here.

Hope that might be useful to someone out there.
