- [Chris] Now that we've gotten our feet wet…with some of the parametric design capabilities…built into Grasshopper.…I'd encourage you to keep going…and develop your algorithmic modeling techniques further.…Here are a few good places to start.…Mode Lab's Grasshopper Primer…is a wonderful overview of everything inside of Grasshopper.…It's very digestible and easy to read.…You can download it for free at grasshopperprimer.com.…I'd also recommend the Grasshopper website,…that's at grasshopper3d.com,…and their learn section has lots of great resources…including videos, links to books,…plug ins, as well as training courses that you can take.…
And finally, the Grasshopper Scripting Gallery…has lots of great examples that build off…of some of the scripting and fractal design topics…that we touched on in this course.…We've only just scratched the surface…of a lot of this content, so I'd really encourage you…to keep going with it and have fun.…
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.
