wow, great features! I gave Kangaroo and WB a try doing some pneumatics and so far so good. Thanks so far. Still I am wondering how you made the mesh in your example because i want to use a grid myself. Especially the intersections seem hard to model. Did you build the whole thing up mannually or is their a parametric way to solve it.


Thanks again,

hi helmut!

first of all, wellcome to grasshopper :)

second, in order to do any of this you will need to gear up with all the latest plug ins for grasshopper, you can find all of them on

for this video i've used the Kangaroo plug-in form Daniel Piker - and Grasshopper Tools from Giulio Piacentino for the animation render -

the mesh voronoi grid ,I've made myself.

You should start by understanding the Inflate sample in the kangaroo files, experimenting on your own model.

Hope this helps


Good day

hi Ivan,

I'm a 4e year student architectural ingeneering at the University of Brussels and have recently started to use grasshopper+plugins. As a preparation for my master thesis on pneumatic grid shells and their structural behaviour I found it useful to simulate a similar structure as a first step. I suppose you could say your project is a good example of what I'm trying to achieve in the software. So if there's anything you want to share on how to use the plugins properly, you're welcome.


Kind regards,

Great inflate/ pressure animation, what renderer are you using to animate? or are you just changing the color setting is GH/ Rhino?  If you don't mind could you explain the process that you are using to get movie outputs from GH.
