- [Chris] Hi, I'm Chris Reilly and welcome to Up and Running with Grasshopper. Grasshopper is a plug-in for the Rhinoceros 3D modeling package and it gives us a powerful set of tools for visually creating and editing complex forms. In this course we'll explore algorithmic techniques for generating 3D geometry in Grasshopper. I'll start by showing you how to use simple math to quickly create complex forms. We'll look at converting random data into something more interesting. And I'll show you how to generate sophisticated forms using repetitions of simple shapes.
We'll be covering all of these techniques plus plenty of other tools and features. And before you know it you'll be a 3D algorithm wizard. So let's get started with Up and Running with Grasshopper.
