generative modeling for Rhino
With some of the exercises from the NON-LINEAR LAB as inspiration and in preparation for the DATA LAB, we’ve been creating some fun new content as of late. Topcs will include Advanced Data Tree Usage, Python Scripting in Grasshopper, and Exploring Add-ons such as Weaverbird and Kangaroo. Specifics can be found in the sections below. The workshop is quickly approaching and there are only a few seats remaining. Reserve your seat now via the link below.
Do you find yourself wondering what separates the Forest from the Trees?! The main conceptual and technical challenge we hear from users who want to implement Grasshopper into their creative process is Data Trees. Data – how it’s stored, accessed, and associated – is the threshold that separates you from fluid execution and powerful routines in Grasshopper. Yes, it’s really abstract, but it’s the key to attacking your design problem. For the upcoming DATA LAB, we will be focusing on making data structures clear from concepts to application. Topics will include:
After the NON-LINEAR LAB, we were really excited to start experimenting with merging Python Scripts with our Grasshopper Definitions. Coupling Grasshopper’s interface and input objects with Python’s capacity to run quick, powerful, and non-linear scripts, offers designers a relatively easy way to extend Grasshopper’s capabilities as well as subvert its required linearity. (What you define is what you get! It may be cool but it is determined by your inputs.) In the DATA LAB, we will spend a significant amount of time developing and experimenting with Scripted Components and other Add-ons, including Weaverbird (Mesh Topologies + Smoothing) and Kangaroo (Physics-Based Simulation). If you are a consistent Grasshopper user or are curious about extending Grasshopper’s functionality into Scripting, Meshing, or Simulation, this Lab is for you!
