Explore the most common evolutionary solvers and simulators and their capabilities.
- [Instructor] Galapagos is an evolutionary solver … that has been included as part of Grasshopper … since at least 2011. … Galapagos is well-documented and a powerful tool … that is relatively easy to learn and use. … But alternative solvers have also been developed … by the Grasshopper community. … This video will review some of those alternatives … noting their respective intent, license, and ease of use. … I can find a list of evolutionary solver options … by searching evolution on the food4Rhino website … which is a list of Rhino plugins. … When reviewing and selecting plugins, … make sure you check the license and version. … Some plugin license limit commercial use … and some plugins are not yet at version one … which means you use at your own risk. … Let's look at a few of these options. … Biomorpher is an interesting tool designed to let you see … the varied solutions generated algorithmically … and select the fittest yourself. … It's user-directed evolution, … incredibly helpful if you want to incorporate design goals …
