grasshopper webinar series arturo tedeschi

First comes the experience, then teaching.

We waited 10 years before organizing our first online training to give you the best learning experience ever. 10 years of research, projects, collaborations, consulting with leading companies and designers. 10 years of in-person training all over the world and 2 best selling books on algorithmic design. Parametric Vibrations is a webinars series aimed at creating a zero-to-hero learning experience, covering the basics of Grasshopper language as well as diving into essential topics and areas of research.  

ALGORITHMIC MODELLING OF MUSMECI BRIDGE

FREE WEBINAR | Intermediate level

It’s time to rediscover an italian masterpiece and the form-finding principles behind it. The webinar is also an introduction to Kangaroo, the Grasshopper’s physics engine. Main topics: form-finding principles, introduction to particle-spring systems, elastic behaviour, cable and membrane simulation, algorithmic modelling of Musmeci Bridge.

MASTERING DATA TREE

Grasshopper organizes data according to a tree structure where every branch and every branch-content have an index number. Selecting specific items and matching data streams is problematic if you don’t deeply understand how this structure works. The webinar covers the logic of Grasshopper’s Data Tree through clear schemes and specific examples (e.g. Herzog & De Meuron Messe Basel facade).

STRUCTURAL OPTIMIZATION

RECORDED WEBINAR | Advanced level

Structural Optimization is a webinar intended for those who attended the Grasshopper Introduction webinar or for students and professionals with basic experience in Rhino and Grasshopper. The course focuses on the use of Millipede and Galapagos for FEM analysis and optimization. Main topics: FEM Workflow in Grasshopper-Millipede, analysis of beams, frames and shells. Analysis of deformation and stress. Output interpretation, structural optimization using Galapagos (evolutionary and annealing solver). FormFinding strategies, thickness optimization, Topostruct 2D and 3D, topology optimization

GRASSHOPPER PYTHON INTRODUCTION

RECORDED WEBINAR | Advanced level

Even if Grasshopper can be considered itself as a programming language, when it comes to writing a code in Python many Grasshopper users just give up. Probably because they start learning the language from mounds of digital resources or studying the syntax out of a specific context. Conversely, this introduction session can be considered as a quick introduction to Python for Grasshopper starting from something which is already familiar to the grasshopper user, moving after to the main benefits that Python can give if integrated within a standard grasshopper algorithm. Main topics: Python scripting logic. Python scripting in Grasshopper (GH Python). Conditional statements, lists of data, loops, FOR loop, Rhinoscript syntax in Python, importing Grasshopper components within Python scripting, examples.
