Recursive Subdivision of a Topographical Surface – Example 8.3

This example is partly regional analysis, partly trying to make cool images, and partly could have some practical applications. I’ve seen a few scripts floating around called “Recursive Subdivision of a Surface.” One… Continue reading

Interaction between Vectors – Example 6.3

In the previous examples 6.1 and 6.2 we looked at some simple vector fields. The first had only one set of vectors, while the second had multiple controls for the vectors, but the… Continue reading

Graph Mapper – Example 2.4

This is a simple script to introduce a tool in Grasshopper that has some uses, but which I myself haven’t used that much. It takes a graph to remap values (Hence GraphMapper) using… Continue reading

Curve Attractors – Example 2.3

In the last two examples, we looked at point attractors, but you can also use attractors with curves (think paths). In this example we will use the concept of an attractor to scale geometry based on the… Continue reading

Multiple Point Attractor with Random Point Cloud – Example 2.2

A multi-point attractor follows a similar logic as the single point attractor, although distance is measured in a slightly different way. In principle, however, a multi-point attractor is much more useful than a… Continue reading

Single Point Attractor – Example 2.1

A common method for form management in parametric modeling systems and contemporary design is to use a concept known as an attractor. This example of a single point attractor has very limited practical… Continue reading
