Grasshopper Level 1, 11-13 March 2024 (McNeel Europe)

Grasshopper Level 1
Online Workshop
11-13 March 2024
10 AM-5 PM CET
Hosted on Zoom by McNeel Europe

Ping-Hsiang Chen, a former computational designer at Zaha Hadid Architects, leads this three-day online course. This hands-on experience explores computational geometry and parametric design principles. After the completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

1. Have a good understanding of the parametric modeling principle.
2. Understand Rhino geometries and their properties.
3. Work with basic data structure.
4. Customize your modeling workflow.
5. Work with multiple models efficiently.

Day 1
  • Introduction to Parametric Modelling and Computational Geometry Principle
  • Grasshopper Basics (Interface, Data Types, Display Setting, workflow with Rhino, etc.)
  • Numerical Operation (Series, Range, Random, GraphMapper, etc.)
  • Transformation Methods
  • Vectors and Planes
  • Curve Properties and Parameters
Day 2
  • Basic Data Structure
  • Surface Panelization Methods
  • Proximity Based Modelling
  • Number Remapping
  • Conditional Statement and Expression
  • Geometry Morphing
Day 3
  • Introduction to Digital Fabrication
  • String, Tag and Formatting
  • Data Visualisation
  • Dimension and 2D Drawings
  • Data Export to Excel
  • Extend Rhino Function with Grasshopper Player
Course requirements: This course is for beginners in Grasshopper and parametric modeling. No Grasshopper experience is required, but having an intermediate level in Rhino is preferable. We welcome people from cross-disciplinary backgrounds in architecture, product design, jewelry design, engineering, fabrication, art, and more.

Online course fees: EUR 395,- (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers get a 50% discount (proof of status required). Please note that we will confirm your seat after your payment has cleared.

Max. number of participants: 25. If there is no quorum, the course will be canceled 15 days before.

Course language: English
