Grasshopper Level 2 Training Course - Live and Online

Join Simply Rhino's experienced Grasshopper3D trainers to continue your Grasshopper journey with our live online and certified Grasshopper course.

Our courses are always delivered to a small group where Q&A is encouraged and personal attention is possible. This small class format (maximum of 8 attendees) works much better than a larger group which becomes a lecture rather than a training course focused on you!

Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to provide you with an in-depth understanding of Grasshopper3D and two of its main plug-ins, Kangaroo and Weaverbird, giving you a full grasp of parametric modelling, form finding and mesh manipulation. Throughout the course, we will look at the underlying logic behind Grasshopper, including its complex data tree structure, irregular surface paneling, meshes modelling and genetic algorithm.

Kangaroo and Weaverbird

We will also look at physics simulation and optimisation through Kangaroo, including planarization, form-finding and bending forces to reproduce material behaviour within the parametric model and create construction-aware geometry. We will look at mesh subdivision with Weaverbird to model tree-like structures. We will also show you how to develop your own set of tools through user objects.

Course Outcome

Although the class is based on a pre-defined schedule, each class is always different depending on the audience and requests happening throughout. We will make sure that the class matches your expectations and ambitions with the software. Most importantly, we want you to leave the class inspired and ready to use and create with the software at all stages of design.

Course Target Audience

The class is aimed at people who have already undertaken our Grasshopper Level 1 Course or who use Grasshopper in their work on a daily basis. It is also preferable to have an intermediate level in Rhinoceros. Although Grasshopper is mostly used for design, the class is about parametric thinking and workflow and therefore is not addressed at a specific profession. Over the past several years of delivering Grasshopper Level 2 we have had architects, engineers, industrial designers, jewellery designers, contractors, project managers and artists attending the class.

Delivering Live Expert Grasshopper Training to Small Groups

Online Grasshopper Courses from Simply Rhino Training are all Live sessions with our Rhino 3D Authorised Trainers. This live and interactive delivery format allows for discussion and timely questions. We record the sessions too, so you can go over the material again and as required following the class; so we’d say this is the best possible online learning approach, first live, and then access to recordings of your courses.

Recordings of your course are available for the purpose of viewing (not downloading) and up to a period of 12 x months following your class, we host these videos behind a password so they are secure & private, meaning only you and your fellow classmates can view these recordings.

Simply Rhino class sizes are kept to a maximum of 8 attendees, this small class group approach ensures every attendee can have personal trainer attention. This is far better than a larger group approach which turns training in to a lecture - join a small group with us and improve your Grasshopper skills in the best environment!
