Grasshopper Level 2 Online Course, April 19-21 (McNeel Europe)

Grasshopper Level 2 Online Course
April 19-21, 2022
10 AM-5 PM CET
Hosted on Zoom by McNeel Europe

The upcoming Grasshopper level 2 course is for professionals who would like to get an in-depth understanding of parametric design principles in Grasshopper. In the three-day course, our tutor Ping-Hsiang Chen (computational designer at Zaha Hadid Architects) will explore SubD and QuadRemesh features from Rhino 7 to tackle complex geometric problems. The course will focus on concepts such as data flow control, data management, behavior-driven modeling, iterative modeling, and learning how to create feedback loops using algorithms to optimize and benchmark design options.

Day 1 
  • Review Computational Geometry and Complex Geometry
  • Advanced Data Structure (Branch and Path Manipulation)
  • Data Grouping, Partition, Classification and Culling
  • Data Sorting, Sets
  • Conditional Statements
  • Vectors, Frame, Plane, Transformation
  • Custom Patterns and Domain
  • Genetic Algorithm
Day 2
  • Mesh Modelling Introduction
  • Mesh Subdivision and Optimization with Quad Remesh
  • Introduction to Sub D and workflow with Nurbs and Mesh
  • Introduction to Physics Based Modeling
  • Form Finding with Goals and Forces
  • Encode Material Behavior and Constraint into a Geometric Model
Day 3
  • Code Reusability and Create Custom Function
  • Data Import and Export
  • Collaborative Workflow Introduction
  • Grasshopper Players and Hops 
  • Q&A and course recap

Will the course be recorded for those of us in different time zones that wish to follow along, but won't be able to log on at those times?

Unfortunately, the workshop is fully booked and the registration is now closed.

We will probably organise this workshop again but there are no scheduled dates yet.
