Grasshopper

algorithmic modeling for Rhino

rese arch GRASSHOPPER® Sessions

WEBINARS

The webinars are series of on-line live courses for people all over the world. The tutor broadcasts the screen of his computer along with his voice to the connected spectators who can ask questions and comment in real time. This makes webinars similar to live workshops and superior to tutorials. Through the hands-on experience the sessions build practical skills for an everyday Grasshopper® use.

SESSIONS

The rese arch Grasshopper® sessions are unique for their thorough explanation of all the features, which creates a sound foundation for your further individual development or direct use in the practice. The webinars are divided into four groups: Essential, Advanced, Iterative and Architectural. If you are a Rhinoceros 3D or Grasshopper® newcomers you are advised to take all the Essential sessions before proceeding to the next level. If none of the proposed topics suit your needs or if you require special treatment, you can request a custom-tailored 1on1 session. All sessions are held entirely in English.

ESSENTIAL SESSIONS

The Essentials cover the first steps, explain the principles and teach the best practices. After taking the all the Essential sessions you will be ready to create simple Grasshopper® definitions on your own, understand third-party tutorials and process to the advanced sessions.

FIRST STEPS

NURBS vs. Mesh modeling, Rhinoceros 3D GUI and basic use, installing Grasshopper®, Grasshopper® GUI, basic logic, components, parameters, inputs, numbers, simple geometry, referenced geometry, locally defined geometry, baking.

LISTS AND CONDITIONS

Data types, booleans, conditions, pick&choose.

Introduction to lists, list item, cull item, sort, shift list, merge, patterns, dispatch, weave, list-based geometry: polyline, NURBS curve, interpolated curve, loft surface.

VECTORS AND DOMAINS

Introduction to vectors, vectors vs. points, vector addition, cross product, dot product, vector operations, vector display, practical use, planes/frames, normals.

Introduction to domains, t parameter, evaluate curve, boundaries, remap, reparametrize, UV coordinates, evaluate surface.

TREES

Introduction to data trees, graft, flatten, unflatten, tree statistics, cherry picker, simplify, shift path, path mapper, tree item, tree items.

BITS AND PIECES

Wrap-up of the Essential sessions, everything that didn’t fit before, graph mapping, advanced baking, custom display, conditional transformations, attractors, geometry analysis, simple panelling.

ADVANCED SESSIONS

The Advanced sessions put the essential knowledge into practical use. The advanced sessions explain specific design strategies, lead you through complex Grasshopper® definitions, show tips and tricks and put some plug-ins into use.

MESH

NURBS vs. Mesh modeling, topology, creating mesh geometry, welding, replacing faces, extruding, smoothing, extracting edges, Weaverbird plug-in, Mesh+ plugin, Voronoi, Metaballs, geometry wrapper.

PANELING

Explanation of paneling, custom NURBS paneling, custom Mesh paneling, paneling with attractors, multiple parametric influences.

KANGAROO PHYSICS BASICS

Introduction to Kangaroo plug-in, introduction to iterative processes, forces, springs, joints, simulation of a tension structure, self-organizing network, simple cloth and paper simulations.

ITERATIVE SESSIONS

The Iterative webinars are the speciality of the rese arch sessions. Since Mateusz Zwierzycki introduced his Anemone plugin it is easy and convenient to use loops in Grasshoper®, allowing for the vast world of recursion, fractals, cellular automata, growth simulations, L-systems, biomimetic simulations, multi-agent systems and interactive modelling.

ITERATIVE GROWTH

Recap of loops and the iterative paradigm, recap of the Anemone plug-in, random curve growth, random mesh growth, coral growth.

RECURSION AND TREES

Recap of loops and the iterative paradigm, recap of the Anemone plug-in, introduction to recursion, depth growth, recursive tree.

L-SYSTEMS AND SIREPINSKI TRIANGLE

Recap of loops and the iterative paradigm, recap of the Anemone plug-in, introduction to L-systems, rigid Sierpinski triangle, custom Sierpinski triangle.

FLOCKING PART 1

FLOCKING PART 2

Recap of loops and the iterative paradigm, recap of the Anemone plug-in, recap of the multi-agent systems, advanced Boid library use.

ARCHITECTURAL SESSIONS

The Architectural sessions cover the practical use of Grasshopper®. Here you will learn how to automate complex modeling tasks mainly for visualization purposes: automated staircases, railings, windows, facades, maps, scattering, data visualizing and more.
