magic honeycombs

Finally I could use Grasshopper for a real project. It´s a compact computer, that sit´s on the desk and by that requires a higher level of detailing, sophistication and human approachability, than the ones, that are hidden somewhere underneath. Over years the honeycomb structure has become a signature element of Fujitsu, since it has the best ratio of material use, stiffness and surface opening. On this product ventilation isn´t that much required, so we closed the honeycombs with a subtile…

03_voronoi exercise

Hi everyone, 

I appreciate the interest in this post. It´s been a while and actually it was just a first practice of Grasshopper. Even though I found the definition and could post it here. 03_voronoi exercise

Still, the Voronoi algorithms are super interesting as they appear in so many places in nature aswell. As an example the wing of a dragonfly. Interesting…

08_wrinkled fabric surfaces


in this post I´d like to share one of my latest studies on parametric design.

To me those ordered-random structures appear vivid and animated. They can be associated to frozen movements like silk in the wind or water or many other things or events and by that reflect the beholder´s personal horizont of experiences. It stimulates your synapses, it invites you to explore, feel, touch, weight, turn.

Without being too poetic a structured surface, depending on how it´s…

Hi there,

here I share the definition for that honeycomb structure. I did clean up the file, using some groups and notes, to make it easy to understand.



have fun

Hi Floster, 

many thanks! 

The workshop it'll hold in english. Below I also link to the site of this workshop: :)

Here are the pavilion files if you are still interested.

Thanks for your comments about my work. I will try to explain my approach, and I could also later share my grasshopper file with you, but right now I'm on diffrent computer.


What I did was to use the surface morph (a very handy component) to place a grid of lines upon two surfaces facing each other. Then i simply used these lines to build up the 3D geometry, by making a "unit" surface inbetween each pair of lines, then giving thickness to the unit surfaces, and continuing with making joints and calculating intersections.


From there i took a wireframe "section" of each piece, holding information about the shape with holes and joints (extensions). These sections i oriented flat next  to each other in the XY-plane, complete with numbering labels. I exported the contour lines/"sections" into AutoCAD, organized them onto a couple of sheets with the right dimension to fit the printer etc, and then the lasercutter did the rest.


Hope that was somewhat understandable! Best luck with your future explorations of the "real world" :)

Hi Florian,

you're right, i missed your post about! many thanks for the answer! i've read the message and now i'm gonna try to do that: i've understood you work like this

- make a grid with GH on the surface, and set up the circole in each peaces of surface the grid do, then the curve attractor that transform cicle from small up to big (ref the distance)

- than you bake it and use the command Split of Rhino to create holes so you have your pierced surface you can after extrude and work as you want!


Thanks again! you're very kind to answer me, the new dummy of the situation! :-)
