SmartForm is a new real-time shape optimization and sculptural design tool for Grasshopper.
Developed by the Smart Space team at BuroHappold, SmartForm is a suite of tools that allows you to rapidly model, analyse and optimize complex freeform shapes found in modern architecture. It has the following components:
- SmartForm: optimize a complex form in real time
- SmartFormAnalyser: rapidly analyse a form and panelisation scheme for a variety of parameters like planarity, distortion, etc.
- SmartClustering: an innovative tool that reduces the amount of unique panels and nodes within a given form.
