description

Introduction to parametric models with Grasshopper. Grasshopper is a powerful tool – integrated in Rhino 6 – enabling Visual Programming within Rhino. For those who would like to write their own project scrips but do not know any programming language is a very intuitive and easy way to to reach project specific definitions/scripts to enhance your workflow.

With Grasshopper you can handle complex modelling tasks just as in Rhino -parametrising surfaces or any other geometry. This allows the user in example to go through a form-finding process in the first design stages using GHP as an adequate tool for fast creation of numerous prototypes and morphological studies.

Through the use of data-inputs as parameters or mathematical functions you can reach a high level of precision and use GHP as a simulation program, even combining it further with more project specific Plug-ins (advanced level).

As a result this means on one hand an immense time and planning advantage over the “conventional” design method and has the flexibility of a non-linear workflow, which allows at any time to change the original parameters or values and adjust the final design model to the requirements.

Grasshopper uses objects and functions from Rhino, why is an advantage to be familiar with Rhino3D. Through its graphical programming scheme Grasshopper is an intuitive program, yet requires some abstract logical understanding capacities.
