Grasshopper Level 3 Online Course, March 27-29 (McNeel Europe)


Grasshopper Level 3 Online Course
Host: McNeel Europe (Barcelona)
March 27-29, 2023, 10 am-5 pm CEST

The upcoming Grasshopper Level 3 Course is for professionals seeking to broaden their understanding of Grasshopper in the design and production process.

For three days, participants will have the opportunity to delve into advanced techniques in design and production under the guidance of Ping-Hsiang Chen, a senior architect at Zaha Hadid with over 10 years of computational design experience. This course focuses on geometric manipulation, data-driven analytical approaches, advanced geometry creation with feedback loops, collaboration in data-driven workflows, and automation in Grasshopper. 

On completion of this course, participants will learn:
  • Gain better control over complex geometries
  • Integrate advanced techniques in geometry creation through the implementation of feedback loops
  • Effectively analyze and manage large datasets for informed design decision making
  • Automate design processes and create custom interfaces for real-time feedback
  • Foster collaboration within data-driven workflows for optimal outcomes

Day 1
  • Computational Design and Parametric Modelling Overview
  • Volumetric Modeling Techniques using Mesh and SubD
  • Custom Domain Creation
  • Advanced Geometry Modification Methods
  • Geometry Retopology Techniques
  • Iterative Modeling Introduction

Day 2 
  • An Overview of Generative Design
  • Single and Multi-objective Optimization with Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Introduction to Basic Machine Learning Techniques for Data Processing
  • Utilizing Strings and Expressions in Grasshopper
  • Creation of a Web-based Viewer for Data Sharing and Visualization

Day 3
  • Rhino/Grasshopper Document Management
  • Automating Design Tasks and Data with Grasshopper
