algorithmic modeling for Rhino

The Union of Naval Architects


The Union of Naval Architects

This group is intended as a collective of gh users who have a marine background.

Despite the name you do not have to be a Naval Architect to join. Whether you are a budding Optimist Sailor or Admiral of the Fleet please feel free to share and discuss any topics relevant to Grasshopper and the Maritime Industry.

Also acceptable "Off Topics" of conversation include "How will l'Hydroptere fair on her Transpacific Record attempt?" Or "Should Juan K have been appointed the VOR one design, or is he to arrogant to toe the line?".

However I would like to point out that the level of decorum should not descend to that of Sailing Anarchy and there will be no Fridays here!

Hey there,

I'd like to introduce myself, I am freelancing Naval Architect in Bremen, Germany.

Please see my humle website at

An english site will be set up, the entire page is quite new.

Highly surprised what you're doing with grasshopper.

Seems, Orca3D is almost not necessary at all.

Should have found this earlier.

I've been interested in using kangaroo for a buoyancy equilibrium type script. Right now i'm using a graphing method to find equilibrium, but would like to use kangaroo some how. I haven't used kangaroo at all and was wondering if anyone else was interested in working through this with me. 

Here is some one who is using a method I don't quite understand.

Any takers?

Hello people!!

I'm very glad to see this group!! I started to use GH to develope propellers for vessels for almost three years and now i'm trying to learn about hull ships with GH. I hope work in cooperation with you because I have seen amazing things here!!

I am not a Naval Architect, but this group for sure, made me very very curious and interested in possibilities of Grasshopper in Naval Architecture.
