New Python for Grasshopper video course (by Fabian Eidner)

Concrete columns, ceramic vases, or recyclable formworks are only a few examples of the application of Additive Manufacturing Techniques (3D printing). The challenge in their manufacture lies in the automated digital design process and the generation of a continuous Printing Path (Slicing).

This course provides an insight into the basic mechanics of Python Scripting within the Grasshopper environment, allowing you to create tailored components for the design, analysis, and export of various expressive cylindric shapes.

To explore the aesthetic potential of 3D printing we dive into the influence of trigonometric functions as a design driver for corrugating-interfering surface patterns.

In four hours of video lessons, you will apply the Python Syntax from the Beginner to Intermediate Level. With a special focus on object-oriented scripting (Classes) the final script can create a multitude of one-of-a-kind shapes within fractions of a second, visualizing their data and eventually exporting their G-Code for a potential fabrication.
