INTRO TO GRASSHOPPER AND ZBRUSH V1.0
Grasshopper has a vast and comprehensive computational geometry library, that lays the platform to utilize this plugin for Rhino to create iterative algorithms. While Grasshopper is not formally structured to operate in this manner, but the presence of many plugins broadened its capabilities in that direction – Anemone, Octopus, Weaverbird, Cocoon, Culebra. This course will focus on comparing the standard Grasshopper workflow and the workflow required by those looping plugins. During the 2-day course we will introduce the participants to proper data management required when looping, develop some Generative algorithms and apply them in the architectural context.
ZBrush is a mesh modeling tool which easily transforms meshes like painting with a pen. Here we will learn how to manage high density and complex meshes in Zbrush as way of further texturing and mesh optimization. Students will learn the basic Zbrush user interface and its typical workflow for mesh manipulation and texturing.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Introduction to Rhinoceros
- Introduction to Grasshopper and Plugins
- Basic loop based and generative logic in Grasshopper
- Introduction to Zbrush and Mesh Manipulation / Texturing
Each Participant should provide their own computer with the following software installed. If you do not have a software, trial versions can be found on each software company’s website. We will send participants links to the required software, trials, and plug-ins for download. Please have the software installed prior to workshop start. If you have issues installing software, we may be able to help you during the workshop.
- McNeel Rhinceros 3D
- Grasshopper (Plugins: Anemone, Octopus, Weaverbird, Cocoon, Culebra)
- Pixelogic ZBrush
