Grasshopper is a powerful generative design and modeling plugin for Rhinoceros 3D. It can be said to be a visual programming language that is presented via a node-based editor. Grasshopper greatly extends Rhino’s capability and allows for extensive parametric control over curves, surfaces and models. Additionally it also offers the power to automate repetitive processes to create form and designs via node-based visual programming. Currently, very popular within the architectural field, Grasshopper can also be effectively deployed in other design disciplines and applications as well. Some of the most iconic designs in the world have been conceived with the aid of Grasshopper 3D.
This course provides an introduction to Grasshopper for Rhino 3D. Additionally, it also covers detailed analysis and breakdown of useful definitions and configurations for various design styles, patterns and form structures.
Participants will learn to create complex 3D forms and geometries that will otherwise be tedious to create using traditional modelling methods. An example is as shown below.
- Participant will be able to understand the interface and essential navigation of the software.
- Participant will be able to understand the basics of parametric and algorithmic modelling via Grasshopper.
- Participant will be introduced to commonly used components and definitions,
A basic proficiency of Rhinoceros 3D is required. Participants should have Rhino Proficiency equivalent to Level 1 or higher.
