Event Description

This training will accompany designers into conceiving new shapes with generative algorithms. We will start with a theoretical and functional understanding of the graphical algorithm editor, and then dive into more complex parametric models. We’ll also learn tricks to keep our project responsive and enjoyable to use.

Course outline



  • An understanding of the Grasshopper interface and the visual programming theory
  • Base parameters, large numbers of points and vectors, and small geometrical instances
  • Data flow
  • Troubleshooting definition problems and solutions
  • Know the main component types
  • Be able to join, and manage connections and trees
  • Expressions for both calculation and boolean creation
  • Understand Data Matching and casting
  • Managing long lists of objects within Grasshopper
  • Have an understanding of the functioning of Grasshopper components


Experience creating definitions

  • Parametric geometry examples, like attractors and list culling
  • Re-utilizable modeling examples: colored panelization, surface population, gradient and picture sampling and manipulation, catenary line and weaving
  • Spline animation examples
  • Getting ready to prepare own definitions in groups
  • More information...
