algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I added a new GH group for PanelingTools Add-on to Grasshopper for Rhino 5.0:
This is a first BETA release and will likely change fast over the coming weeks. You will need to have the latest Rhino 5.0 BETA to run it. Details are posted in the group.
Please join the group and give PT_GH a try. Best place to post…
PanelingTools is a Rhino plugin to rationalize design forms and generate design patterns. Details are in:
PanelingTools creates ordered grids of points as base for applying any custom paneling idea. Panels take the format of…
The first edition of "Essential Mathematics for Computational Design" is now available with free download:
This is an example of how to create a rectangular and diamond grids using VB.NT DataTrees to output a tree structure. Download Diagrid_GH09.gh to see the GH definition.

A cellular automaton consists of a regular grid of cells, each in one of a finite number of states, "On" and "Off" for example. The grid can be in any finite number of dimensions. For each cell, a set of cells called its neighborhood (usually including the cell itself) is defined relative to the specified cell. For example, the neighborhood of a cell might be defined as the set of cells a distance of 2 or less from the cell. An initial state (time t=0) is selected by assigning a state for…Continue
An L-system or Lindenmayer system is a parallel rewriting system, namely a variant of a formal grammar (a set of rules and symbols), most famously used to model the growth processes of plant development, but also able to model the morphology of a variety of organisms.
L-systems can also be used to generate self-similar fractals such as iterated function systems. L-systems were introduced and developed in 1968 by the Hungarian theoretical biologist and botanist from the University of…
