Join Walter Zesk for an in-depth discussion in this video Optimizing with Galapagos, part of Grasshopper: Generative Design for Architecture.
- [Instructor] I have the exercise file open already. … We're in the process of implementing the diagram … for the plan that we've made … for our generative design model. … We've set up our site constraints, … we built out our Sine wave logic, … we've used the two to create a roof surface, … we can see here. … And then we calculated sides, views, … represented by vectors, … and we've generated a fitness score, … based on the number of views … that are exposed to these open areas … between the buildings. … Now, we're going to add in an evolutionary solver … to use their fitness to improve or optimize … the shape of the roof. … So first thing we're going to do is … connect our fitness in Galapagos to this fitness score, … which is the ratio between the total number … of view opportunities to the views … that are actually looking out … through these view corridors. … Now we'll drag our solver over. … We're going to connect in the inputs … to represent the genotype, … the things Galapagos can control. …
