Mastering Data Tree – Recorded Webinar

EVENT TITLE: Mastering Data Tree 
EVENT TYPE: recorded webinar
LEVEL: intermediate
GOAL: mastering Grasshopper’s data structure
SOFTWARE: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper
PREREQUISITES: basic experience in Grasshopper 
LENGTH: 130 minutes approximately 
TUTOR: Arturo Tedeschi 


Grasshopper organises data according to a tree structure where every branch and every branch’s content have an index number. Selecting specific items and matching data streams is problematic if you don’t deeply understand how this data-structure works. The recorded webinar covers the logic of Grasshopper’s Data Tree through clear schemes and specific examples. Tutor: Arturo Tedeschi. Language: English.



Main Topics:

  • – Data Tree logic: understanding items, indices, branches, paths
  • – Main operations on Data Tree: flatten, graft, flip matrix, partition list, prune tree, entwine, etc
  • – Techniques for branches’ selection   
  • – Matching data streams
  • – Example: Herzog & De Meuron Messe Basel facade
  • – Path Mapper
  • – Sorting Data
