Prerequisites

Overview

This course ensures you understand completely the fundamentals of Grasshopper 3D so that you can create your own definitions to whatever complexities you can imagine. Meet the Graphical Algorithm Editor in Rhino Grasshopper is a visual programming language that runs within the Rhinoceros 3D computer-aided design application. It is used to create parametric designs. Grasshopper within Rhino 6 can be used in two main ways : One – To create different designs using the same concept by changing the parameters. E.g. Number of folds on a surface Two – Reduce the time span of repetitive tasks using the same algorithm with different geometries in different designs. E.g. Designs to be placed in a gallery Grasshopper is now used extensively in Architecture and Product Design and is upcoming in the Jewelry Industry.
