Continuous Formations V1.0 Webinar by DesignMorphine - April 24, 2022

Continuous Formations V1.0 will explore generative techniques for creating, trimming, and smoothing closed-cell mesh networks in Grasshopper. We will cover methods for modeling with the SubD geometry type in Rhino + Grasshopper and understand its relationship with Mesh and NURBS geometries. Generated mesh networks will be computationally trimmed by SubD geometries modeled in Rhino, then relaxed into a continuous minimal surface with smooth edge conditions. Once we develop a minimal surface generator, we will explore methods for panelizing and creating textures on these forms. Through these methods, techniques for dealing with SubD creases in Grasshopper will be covered. Continuous Formations will take a modular approach to constructing Grasshopper tools where we will understand methods for making reusable Grasshopper functions using Clusters and Hops. Once a tool-set for generating minimal surface networks is created, we will look at basic visualization techniques in Blender to output renderings.
