Grasshopper Introduction – Recorded Webinar

EVENT TITLE: Grasshopper Introduction
EVENT TYPE: recorded webinar
LEVEL: basic
GOAL: zero-to-hero learning experience: understanding and mastering algorithmic modelling with Grasshopper
SOFTWARE: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper
PREREQUISITES: basic experience in 3D modeling 
LENGTH: 130 minutes approximately 
TUTOR: Arturo Tedeschi 


The recorded webinar “Grasshopper Introduction” is a zero-to-hero learning experience focused on a deep understanding of algorithmic modelling with Grasshopper. Through examples, algorithms, schemes and sketches, student will acquire the ability to generate complex geometries through an accurate control of mathematical and geometrical parameters. The training is intended for students and professionals without any previous experience in algorithmic modelling. Registrants will be able to re-watch it anytime. Tutor: Arturo Tedeschi. Language: English.


Main Topics:

  • – Algorithmic logic 
  • – Algorithmic modeling with Grasshopper: user interface, components, workflow, basic operations.
  • – List management
  • – Surface parametrization
  • – Numerical sequences, vectors and geometric transformations (translation, rotation, scaling, orientation)
  • – Introduction to Data Tree  
  • – Attractor logic 
  • – Single and multiple attractors applied to a skyscraper’s facade
