  • Grasshopper Designer

Grasshopper Designer


This course teaches Architects how to enhance their parametric design skills. Students will learn to manipulate their geometry and combine it with math using conditions. Students will also learn how to combine, subtract and intersect their geometry as well as control geometry using point fields. After completing the course, students will also be able to package their design logic into components using clusters and functions.
Best for:

Architects looking to master advanced techniques and design analytics through parametric design.

Difficulty:
Duration:
3 Hours

Learning Objectives


  1. Participants will be able to use a variety of methods to transform geometry and model 3D architectural designs using Grasshopper software.
  2. Participants will be able to use Operators to combine geometry with Math in order to measure and model 3D architectural designs using Grasshopper software.
  3. Participants will be able to introduce conditions for checking and selecting geometry to design 3D architectural designs using Grasshopper software.
  4. Participants will be able to Combine, Subtract and Intersect geometry using Intersection tools to create 3D architectural designs using Grasshopper software.

What our Members are Saying




If you want to get ideas out of your brain and into 3D design, or even to 3D printing like me, IDDA is the place to go.




The IDDA online learning platform is world class. Our first and second-year students are now producing work previously only reserved for Masters-level students.




I really enjoyed the videos, they are so clear and easy to understand. So amazing to see what can be done with Rhino!




We are excited to roll out this world-class training platform to our Australian and overseas offices.
