With the curves set up, we start creating canopy surfaces.

Here we look at the different type of curves and how they are mathematically constructed with control points.

With the framework set up, we create new edges with different types of freeform curves and beziers.

In this video continue the framework with copying and rotating our lines into place.  With the poles in place we start to explore Arcs.

This is the first video in a series of our Introduction to Computational Design class.  We will start out with Rhino and Grasshopper and get into Python scripting.  Session One is an...

The process of taking solids or surfaces from Rhino to 3ds Max is a little tricky to say the least. In this video I'll talk about how to mesh surfaces and solids in Rhino for better exporting...

Have you ever needed to export curves from Rhino to 3ds Max? In this video I'll talk about how to export curves from Rhino and the various files types you can use (.dwg, .igs).  From there...

Recently Ball State University's i.M.A.D.E  has posted a series of new Grasshopper tutorials on their website. From the i.M.A.D.E  website: i.M.A.D.E acts as a catalyst of digital...

Grasshopper tutorial showing how to create a data tree of strings which are used to create different louver configurations on a rectangular panel facade. Fun_With_Sets.ghx   Tutorial.pdf...

This is an update to the original Grasshopper truss tutorial, hopefully it solves a lot of the issues presented from using a newer version of grasshopper. If you or your firm is looking for...

This is a new idea for demoing software.  What I'm trying to do is show interactions or similar processes in 2 different applications.  In this video I focus on some pretty simple...

We are pleased to announce the winner of the DesignByMany External Solar Shade Challenge sponsored by HP. The winning Entry was HSS: Hyperbolic Solar Shade. Congratulations to the team at Method...

In this Grasshopper video tutorial we are going to build an external solar shade.  I did it as a response to the challenge on DesignByMany. Here is my disclaimer: this video is not as concise as...

In this RhinoScripting video tutorial we will cover how to write a VERY simple RhinoScript. We'll basically be re-creating the Divide command in Rhino.  You will see how to bring Rhino...

For those of you looking for additional information on RhinoScript, here's a compilation of a few great websites that provide design examples, tutorials, definitions, and links to other...

In this Grasshopper video tutorial we will continue cover how to use data trees (nested lists or multi dimensional arrays). I'll try and walk through how you access data within multiple lists and...

In this Grasshopper video tutorial we cover how to use data trees (nested lists or multi dimensional arrays). I'll try and walk through how you access data within multiple lists and then how you...

In a DesignReform first, I will be presenting a live webinar tutorial tomorrow (6/11) at 1:30 p.m. EST. I will be discussing data trees using Grasshopper for Rhino. This model is created from a set...

In this Grasshopper video tutorial we will be creating different patterns of Iso-curves that have the potential to be used as toolpaths for CNC milling machines. In this first version of the exercise...

In this Grasshopper video series we will be re-creating the parametric walkway/bridge that had been done on the site before.  In this version of the exercise we'll create  the floor as...
