Basic Course Grasshopper

Vicente Soler and Oscar Liebana

This course will introduce the student to the basics of the Grasshopper plug-in for Rhino 3D. In most 3D modeling software the end user is able to automate the creation of geometry and other tasks using some form of scripting. Taking advantage of this feature requires programming knowledge. The Grasshopper plug-in exposes a visual programming interface, allowing the users to design algorithms by manipulating graphical elements, akin to drawing a flowchart, rather than typing textual code. Although it can be used to solve a wide range of problems, one of its main uses in architecture is the production of generative designs.

Training Tools are courses for specific tools requiring constant upgrade for students in the School of Architecture (degree, postgraduate and vocational training) for a better academic progress of the subjects in their regulated course. Priority areas are the software of digital fabrication, parametric design, BIM and use of specific machinery of architecture workshops. They are made with professors linked to school and preferably alumni. The learning system will be held through practical examples on workshops. Students will bring their equipment and educational licenses shall be used. Digital documents as well as promotional videos of the courses will be made.
