Join Walter Zesk for an in-depth discussion in this video Goals and Kangaroo solver, part of Grasshopper: Generative Design for Architecture.
So we're in the process of … implementing our generative design model, … specifically we just set up our structural system … and now we're going to prepare it for optimization … using a physics solver. … So if I look here I built out the structure, … and it looks like kind of a mess, … but it's adapting to the form of our roof surface, … Now we want to set this up for optimization. … So each of these curves, we want to explode them. … These are polylines, … and we're going to link some of them together. … We're going to group them together … based on how we want to apply forces. … So these top curves we want to apply similar forces. … And then the next layer down we'll group separately. … This is the lower level. … And then we also want curves that go … from the bottom here to the ground. … In order to do that we're going to go … back to our original column, … this is our sets of points that create our columns. … And we will create curves that link together … all of these points. … So the way we do that, we'll go to Sets, …
