This tutorial gives a basic understanding of the Ladybug and Honeybee plugins for Grasshopper. Ladybug and Honeybee are open-source Grasshopper plugins designed for modeling and simulating climate data.
- [Instructor] In the next few videos of this chapter,…we'll be working with an open source Python plugin…for Grasshopper called Ladybug.…Ladybug works with climate data…to allow engineers and architects…to create environmentally-conscious designs.…Ladybug also includes Honeybee,…which connects to other open source climate…and weather data modeling tools, and these sorts of plugins…are what make working in Grasshopper so great.…There are tons of options for extending the base…of Grasshopper's core features…to help us make models that are very sophisticated…without too much extra work.…So here, on the Ladybug site, we can download the plugin.…
We'll do that in the next video.…We can also get links to the community forum,…as well as the GitHub reference page,…and those resources will be really helpful…as we get started with Ladybug.…So in the next chapter,…we'll download and get it installed to work in Grasshopper.…
By the end of the course, you'll see how even basic literacy in Grasshopper can be applied to developing projects for art, manufacturing, architecture, and design.
