New book by Abdulwahab Alosaj - CAD.GH Computational Aided Design Via Grasshopper


CAD.GH Computational Aided Design Via Grasshopper by Abdulwahab Alosaj

Abdulwahab Alosaj, instructor of architectural digital courses at Ajman University - UAE, just published a book on computational design. The comprehensive guide explains Grasshopper and its most essential plugins, including Kangaroo 2, Ladybug tools (Ladybug, Honeybee, Butterfly, Dragonfly), WASP, Fox, Anemone, BioMorpher, KUKA|prc for robotics, and the integration of coding by Python and C#, in addition to Grasshopper default tools (points, curves, surfaces, meshes, data, Galapagos).

CAD.GH Computational Aided Design Via Grasshopper is an essential guide for readers seeking to grasp and comprehend the potential of computational-aided design workflow by introducing the power of Grasshopper®, a visual programming language integrated with Rhinoceros®.

The book opens up a world of possibilities for groundbreaking design exploration. Through the lens of Grasshopper’s algorithmic design process approaches, the book provides design methods that enable the creation of complex geometries, dynamic patterns, and adaptive structures. These capabilities transcend the limitations of traditional CAD tools, empowering designers to envision and actualize concepts that were once considered unattainable.

From seasoned professionals to aspiring designers, this book equips readers with the skills and knowledge to harness the potential of Grasshopper and ascend on a transformative journey in computational-aided design. With its comprehensive approach and innovative insight, this resource promises to elevate design practices and inspire creative breakthroughs, pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved in the realm of architecture and beyond.
