Mode Lab (Grasshopper) Tutorial

Vid 02

02_playing-with-buttons

This first video was mainly to become familiar with the parameters and components in Grasshopper.

Vid 03

03_creating-geometry

In this tutorial I was able to create geometry using reference points in Rhino

Vid 04

04_creating-rectangle-with-referenced-point

This tutorial also allowed me to create geometry using referenced points, namely a rectangle.

Vid 05

05_creating-lines-from-a-list

In this tutorial I created a set of corresponding connecting lines from two list. I was also able to specify the ways in which the lines are constructed if there was varying indices between the lists.

Vid 06

06_sine_curve

In this tutorial I was able to construct a sine curve by giving a value to “t” in this case x=sin(t)

Vid 07

07_golden_ratio_curves

In this tutorial I used the same ideas from the previous but this time creating an additional cosine curve, extending lines from corresponding points between the two curves and lofting it.

Vid 08

08_vorinoy

At this point I began to get confused, however I found it interesting to be able to use the Script_Expression Parameter to enter an equation for what you intend to express. The Voronoi function was cool in actually creating a pattern from the points created using the hexagon grid.

Vid 09

09_forces_scale_surfacewasweird

This is the point at which it all fell apart. I understood what was being taught however I somehow was not successful in execution. I think the narrator has a different version of grasshopper than me.
