Learn Grasshopper - Flexible Geometries: Visual Coding
Learn sophisticated and flexible digital modeling techniques using Grasshopper at NextFab, Philadelphia's gym for innovators. Grasshopper is a free plugin that turns Rhino into a parametric modeling program. Rhino is a popular modeling software used by designers worldwide. Parametric means you can define and save your workflow, connect to data and rapidly iterate through options without remodeling an object every time. For some great examples visit grasshopper3d.com/photo. Chris Landau is both an artist and a designer who thinks about practical and poetic applications of parametric modeling.
