In this video, learn tools for advanced parametric modeling and computational design. These tools allow far greater control over models, allowing you to take computational work to the next level.
- One of the first visual programming languages … produced for designers was Grasshopper, … which was released as a plugin … for the modeling software Rhino in 2007. … To model parametric relationships, … Grasshopper uses a set of building blocks called components, … which represent individual operations. … These can be mathematical operations, … such as addition and multiplication, … or geometric operations, … such as extrusions, lofts, and Booleans. … Each component requires specific inputs … and produces one or more outputs … as a result of its operation. … Inputs and outputs can be represented … by many different data types, … including numbers, vectors, points, … curves, surfaces, and meshes. … For example, the addition component … takes two numbers as input and adds them together … to produce one numerical output. … The extrusion component takes in a curve and the vector, … which defines the direction and the length of the extrusion, … and produces the lofted surface as an output. …
