Description

Throughout this Grasshopper tutorial, we'll use specific techniques to advance your expertise in Grasshopper, specifically in relation to data tree management. The key topics we'll cover throughout these lessons involve learning how to generate synchronous 2D drawings, in-depth explanations of how data trees are managed in Grasshopper, and how to make the most effective use of this organizational system to create efficient definitions. By the end of this Grasshopper training, you'll gain a practical understanding of how to efficiently manipulate large amounts of data in the shortest amount of time and with the greatest control, as well as tips and tricks for how to handle errors and debugging as they arise. Software required: Rhino 5, Grasshopper 0.9.0075.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Josh Lobel. I am a design development specialist with over 12 years experience working with architectural design in construction firms. Recently I've been working on large scale installations for cultural and academic institutions, the spoke projects for private clients, and teaching digital design software at a local maker space. In this course we are going to use a classic example of parametric modeling, the twisting skyscraper, to delve deep into how Grasshopper manages lists of information, which is absolutely key to mastering this graphic algorithm editor for Rhino. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include starting with the end result in mind to create an efficient design algorithm, using components to understand and visualize the structure of data trees, various methods for matching items within and between data trees, how to create different design states of your Grasshopper definition, and some tips and trips for automating drawings directing from your definition. By the end of training you will have learned the techniques you will need to efficiently create and control complex Grasshopper definitions and take your parametric modeling to the next level. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share this knowledge with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
