Rotating Circles – Example 3.3

This example is also based on a Processing program from the book Generative Design. The concept, like the last one, is fairly simple. Circles are nested within each other, each having a center point evenly spaced along… 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

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

Random Scaling of Circles – Example 1.2

This second example introduces the concept of scaling objects, and also introduces the important concept of a Random number generator. Randomness is an important concept in many contemporary design expressions, but care should… Continue reading
