Event Description

The aim is, taking Grasshopper as base tool, to go further with the most popular and best rated apps in order to speed up processes and optimize geometries or calculations; a quite time consuming task to carry out without them. We will go through these plugins learning how they work, main features and advantages playing with practical exercises. 

We will highlight key concepts in advanced design, architecture and engineering: topology, form-finding, structural optimization, fractals, loops, genetic and repetitive algorithms...

Also, we will see how to capture nice views and designs from your scripting, with a correct export option, animations...


- Interactive flexible geometry

- Generative design

- Reaction diffusion

- Geometry from DNA parameters

- Generative path visualization

- Growth simulation by sub-D

- Generating and genetic algorithms

- Visualization techniques

Main plug-ins shown: 

> Kangaroo: The most famous and downloaded app for Grasshopper (it is built in the current Grasshopper for Rhino 6). It is a live physics engine interactive simulation, optimization and form-finding directly within Grasshopper

> Galapagos: available in the current Grasshopper build, it is a platform for the application of Evolutionary Algorithms to be used on a wide variety of problems by non-programmers 

> Biomorpher: Interactive Evolutionary Algorithms (IEAs) helping designers to explore the wide combinatorial space of parametric models without always knowing where you are headed. 

> Anemone: works using repetitive algorithms to create loops or sequencial structures like those ones seen in fractals.
