Dynamic relaxation is a powerful tool with a wide variety of possible applications in simulation and optimization. Kangaroo brings these possibilities to Grasshopper, and because it is based on physical dynamics it is also intuitive and visual, with real-time feedback well suited to early stage design development.
This workshop will teach how to use it for the generation of buildable structures, aesthetic geometries and physical experimentation.
It will enable participants to set up and run Kangaroo simulations for a range of form-finding applications, and to develop an understanding of its operation, allowing them to create their own unique simulations from scratch by combining forces in original ways.
pre-requisites: basic Rhino & Grasshopper skills
Software: Rhino 5
