algorithmic modeling for Rhino
UPDATE: Due to schedualing conflicts, the dates for the training have been changed from July 12th-14th to July 21st-23rd. In addition, the price has been decreased from $895 to $795. All other details remain the same.
Although Grasshopper is a powerful tool designed to allow non-coders access to programming-like capabilities, being able to programm allows for new possibilities along with added power and flexibility. Combine the power of Code with the accessibility of Grasshopper and the possibilites for exploration become even greater. Grasshopper|DotNet scripting training focuses specifically on the scripting capabilities and challenges of using Rhino’s DotNET SDK, as well as the DotNET framework within Grasshopper. Trainees will be given the tools to understand how to approach coding with Rhino’s DotNET SDK and perform a variety of tasks which will be the building blocks for Grasshopper scripts.
Topics for the training will include the general structure of the Rhino DotNET SDK, Object Oriented Programming, the Grasshopper scripting environment, data trees, as well as creating, manipulating, and evaluating points, curves, surfaces, and B-Reps.
The training is aimed at people with some experience writing code who are looking to try and begin scripting within Grasshopper. Although the course does presume some previous coding experience, it does not assume a specific language or application, and syntax issues will be covered.
Training will be given in VB.NET, although training material will have both VB.NET and C# examples. Trainees interested in coding in C# are encouraged to register.
Trainees are required to bring their own laptops with Rhino and Grasshopper installed. Installing Visual Studio Express is recommended. Arrangements can be made for Trainees without laptops at an additional cost. Space is limited to 10 trainees.
