Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe – Case Study 01 – Part 01 – Setting up the Plan

This is the first in what I hope to be a longer series of Case Studies, where I want to look at well-known landscape design projects that include parametric thinking, and to try… Continue reading

Growing Lines – Example 10.3

Another way to approach growing structures using Grasshopper and the looping Anenome add-on is to incrementally change geometry until a certain condition is met. In this example, I will take a series of lines… Continue reading

Vector Field Tools in Grasshopper – Basic Spin Force – Example 7.2

In the last example, we looked at using Point charges to create some dynamic structures using the Grasshopper field components. This next example will look at the second type of force, the “Spin” component. The… Continue reading

Vector Field Tools in Grasshopper – Basic + and – Point Charges – Example 7.1

An interesting set of tools that was introduced to Grasshopper a few versions back are the “Field” tools. It only takes a bit of practice to get these up and working. What is… Continue reading

Fractal Trees – Basic L-System- Example 9.4

Another very useful application for fractal processes is to create 3D vegetation for your models. There are several very good commercial products which use algorithms to create plants, which combine mathematical understanding with… Continue reading
