algorithmic modeling for Rhino



SkinDesigner is a Grasshopper plugin that enables the rapid generation of facade geometries from building massing surfaces and repeating, user-defined panels. 

To install:

1-Make sure you have Rhino 5 and Grasshopper installed, or Rhino 6.
2-Install GHPython from here (Rhino 5 only).
3-Select and drag all the userObjects (downloaded here) onto your Grasshopper canvas.
4-Restart Rhino Grasshopper.

Check out our example files  to get yourself familiar with typical SkinDesigner workflows. Also SkinDesigner Tutorials will be posted in this YouTube playlist as they become available. 

You should also feel free to post any questions, feature requests, or bug reports to the SkinDesigner Grasshopper Group  as discussions. Finally, SkinDesigner is an open source project and all of the project’s source code is visible on SkinDesigner’s Github site as well as within the Grasshopper components (by double-clicking on them).
