Explore the world of design using programming. Learn how to bring algorithmic design to your workflow using Grasshopper and Rhino.
- [Chris] Hi, I'm Chris Reilly. I'm an artist, designer, and programmer, and I'm focused on using algorithmic modeling to make useful, interesting, and complex designs. In this course, we'll harness the power of parametric design in Grasshopper to make a definition for a fully parametric object. I'll walk you through all the steps. Starting from design thinking and ideation, to problem solving as we create a complex Grasshopper definition. We'll make sure to plan for the details of getting our design out into the physical world through digital processes like CNC routing. I'm excited for you to put your basic Grasshopper knowledge to the test, as we build out a single, in-depth project. Mastering algorithmic modeling techniques can open up a whole new world of design possibilities, no matter what your focus is. Let's get started.
