Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Grasshopper Essential Training.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files for this course, you can download them to your desktop. The files are divided into numbered folders for each chapter. Most of the files are Grasshopper definitions. Those are the ones with the .gh extension. In some videos, I'll start from either a blank file or a partially finished file. In these cases, you may notice a few stages of the same file, and they'll be named similarly, and the endstage will have the suffix finished. For example, this one, vector-dot-product-finished. There are also a few rhino files with .3dm extension, like this ladybug-sunpath file, and some special files, like the ones in this EPW folder.
I'll be sure to explain in each video exactly which exercise files are needed where. If you don't have access to the exercise files, that's okay. I encourage you to still follow along as we go through the course. Now, let's get started.
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.
