Grasshopper Training Online - Level-2

Overview

Grasshopper Online Live Training - Grasshopper Level-2

Join Simply Rhino's experienced Grasshopper3D trainers to continue your Grasshopper journey with our live online certified course: 'Advancing your Parametric Knowledge Data trees, Form-Finding and Meshes'.

Why You Should Choose a Live Grasshopper for Rhino Training Course


  • Online Grasshopper Courses from Simply Rhino Training are all Live sessions with our Rhino3d 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

  • This approach is far more effective than the Pre-Recorded / On-Demand method alone, just imagine being in a lesson but not being able to ask a question as it comes to mind... how much would you really learn?

  • Having a dialogue with your Rhino3d Instructor is a key part of your learning experience with Simply Rhino, we encourage you to ask questions whenever you like, during or after the class

Level 2 - Course Introduction

images

The aim of this course is to provide you with an in-depth understanding of Grasshopper3D and two of its main plugins, 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.

Target Audience

The class is aimed at people who have already undertaken our Grasshopper level 1 Course or 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 GHL2 we have had architects, engineers, industrial designers, jewellery designers, contractors, project managers and artists attending the class.

Course Outline and Objectives


Kangaroo

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.

Weaverbird

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.

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.
