Is previous knowledge in Grasshopper required?

Not at all. Just some basics in Rhino would be enough.

PROGRAM

Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.

Parametric design works combing geometry and parameters. These variables can be modified to alter and update the final design at any moment, without remaking the 3d model. A parameter can be any data information: the section of a column, the distance to a specific point, the amount of sunlight at certain hour...etc

Another important feature in parametric or computational design is that you can automate or program processes and tasks for your designs. That means it is possible to generate complex shapes with specific data and get endless families of design with diverse results. During the course, with the help of short and basic exercises, we will learn how to reach and apply results to complex surfaces and textures.

FAQ

  • Is previous knowledge in Rhino required?

It can be useful to know some basics in Rhino. You can check some tools in our live online workshop "Rhino Design" or the pre-recorded online intro to Rhino HERE

  • Are sessions recorded?

Sessions are live. Due to time difference or particular situations we will RECORD the sessions, but they are available only during the next 24 hours in order to follow the course pace.

  • How can I access the sessions?

Some days before the course starts, you will access to the course platform. There you can download documentation, files, go to the Zoom sessions and comment or ask questions using the panel discussions. The recorded sessions will be available there too.

  • And Mac users?

Grasshopper is almost the same in Mac and Windows, so it will not a problem.
