GRASSHOPPER TUTORIALS + EXERCISES


The exercises below test basic competence using Grasshopper. Attempt to complete the exercises and if you need extra help refer to the tutorial PDFs.

01 – ORIENT CURVE

This tutorial introduces students to the workflow of Grasshopper by creating a simple definition that takes a reference direction from input curves and re-orients them to face an attractor point.

02 – PERFORATED CURVATURE

This tutorial extends upon tutorial 01 by creating a simple definition that analyses the curvature of a doubly curved surface and indicates how this could be further extended to manipulate material qualities to achieve complex double curvature from perforations in a flat sheet. Information regarding the further extension of this definition is provided at the end of the tutorial.

03 – PANELING TUTORIAL

This tutorial will panel a surface with a specified grid of polylines using triangular, rectangular, hexagonal and radial grids. Through this exercise surface topology concepts will also be introduced such as domain, UV coordinates, remapping and reparametisation.
