|Week 3 - Introduction to parametric modeling|
|Learning Objectives||This week, we'll be covering basic parametric workflows and modeling methods. We'll then take a look at creating Grasshopper definitions using the interface and components, moving to and from Rhino and controlling data flow.|
-Parametric surface redefinition -Surface rationalization and variation lecture -Developable surface modeling technics -Façade and Structure modeling
Lecture: Advanced 3d modeling using Grasshopper
Advanced Modeling Tools
- Grasshopper introduction
- Interface overview
- grid manipulation
- building surfaces from points
- panelized surface
- offset with fillet
- bounding box, box morph
- boolean operations: containment, intersections
Using your key study façade as a starting point, construct three NURB surfaces from a set of curves (use splines, arches, straight lines, sweep, loft, revolve and extrude command) Pick the one most successful/challenging/engaging surface and redefine it using Grasshopper methods covered during the workshop.Some helpful logic: UV remapping with points, redefine through various density curves, rebuild with quads, diagrid, triangulation, space frame truss, waffle lattice, etc.
- Please submit both the final Rhino file and the Grasshopper definition (.3dm, Rhino5 or earlier) to dropbox by next Monday at midnight.
