Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Learning Grasshopper.
To get the most out of this course, you need to be familiar with Rhinoceros 3D modeling software or Rhino for short. I'll also assume that you're familiar with basic concepts of 2D and 3D digital modeling. Rhino is a popular versatile 3D modeling program that works with curves, nurb surfaces and polygon meshes. Rhino's great for a range of applications from rendering to modeling, even simple animations. But, it is best known for producing accurate models of physical objects that eventually will be fabricated in real life.
Often through digital processes like 3D printing and CNC routing. While Rhinoceros can run on Mac OS as well as windows, Grasshopper is Windows only at the time of this recording. We'll be using Rhino 5 and Windows. And, I've made sure to update my installation of Rhino to the latest service release. While it's not required, I recommend a two button mouse with a scroll wheel for easy navigation in both Grasshopper and Rhino. So, let's get started in Grasshopper.
