Join Walter Zesk for an in-depth discussion in this video Visualization, part of Grasshopper: Generative Design for Architecture.
- [Josh] We're in the process of implementing … our generative design model, … and we've almost completed it. … We just used a physics solver to optimize … the structure supporting this roof canopy. … And now we're going to set up some visualization … so we can see it as architectural elements, … in addition to the automation that we've already built down … all the way to our physics solver. … I've added a cluster that will allow us to thicken … these linear elements into mesh objects. … If you want to see how this is implemented … you can hop into the cluster. … Pretty simple, just setting some sides and a radius … so that we can see things as solid elements … rather than lines. … The first thing we're going to do … is get the geometry that's coming out of kangaroo, … these linear elements. … We can use the length of a list of elements … matched up to the length of the list of the goals … to split this list up into different things, … so to get these points for these curves. … Another way to do it that's a little easier and faster …
