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.
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.
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.
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.
Grasshopper Level 2 Online - The Course Consists of 7 x 3-hour Evening Sessions. These Evening Sessions are one per week for 7-weeks. Time: 18:00 to 21:00 BST.
Next Class Date:
Class Commences on Wednesday 12th August 2020 and continues on the following 6 x Wednesday evenings: 19th August; 26th August; 2nd September; 9th September; 16th September & 23rd September.
There will also be a pre-class Orientation of approx 15 minutes where we meet online to test all of the connections, make sure you are familiar with joining the online class and to describe how the class will work over the coming sessions.
