Preview_screen_shot_2014-10-20_at_5

Faculty member Chris Reilly recently published a course on the online learning platform lynda.com.

Up and Running with Grasshopper explores introductory algorithmic modeling with the Grasshopper plugin for Rhino 3D modeler.

Grasshopper—a plugin for the Rhinoceros 3D modeling package—is a graphical algorithm editor that takes advantage of Rhino’s existing tools. Grasshopper offers new ways to expand and control the 3D design and modeling processes, including automating repetitive processes; generating geometry through mathematical functions; quickly making changes to complex models; and creating complex forms through repetitions of simple geometry. Grasshopper requires no programming or scripting knowledge, but still allows designers a high degree of flexibility in creating both simple and complex forms.
