Learn how to use Karamba, a parametric structural engineering plugin for Grasshopper. This powerful tool lets you analyze the response of 3d beams, frames and shell structures with various load scenarios quick, easy and accurate. This course is very useful for architectural engineers who want to learn how to quickly check the performance and structural integrity of their designs and learn how to optimize their design accordingly.
On this Elefront course, Ramon will walk you through the whole workflow of how Elefornt works by creating a highly detailed glassing facade system, in a similar way that Elefront was used in the Morpheus Hotel by Zaha Hadid.
This course covers the workflow of 3D modeling one of our assets into very high detail and is a continuation of the previous Image Planning course. The asset we’re going to focus on is our Sofa. We’re going to start by collecting some additional information on how textile behaves in real life, before we start exporting our low poly model from 3ds Max to ZBrush. In ZBrush we’re going to add all the detail necessary for a realistic representation of our sofa. We’ll end by exporting our high definition UV material maps in Substance Designer.
Learn the whole workflow of creating a stunning interior render using a variety of software; 3ds Max, Corona Renderer, Zbrush, Photoshop and many more!
As Grasshopper and parametric modeling techniques are becoming an increasingly important part of the design workflow, there´s an emerging problem that comes when different parties or stakeholders wants to interact with this models. Although parametric models provide a vasts amounts of information and efficiently automate enormous amounts of tasks, Grasshopper definitions are not an ideal […]
This course focuses on using the evolutionary solver Galapagos to optimize building shapes according to their views. It continues from the Galapagos 101 course, to a more hands-on case study. By mastering Galapagos and getting an understanding of the power of an evolutionary solver, one can make smarter and better-informed decisions early on in the design process.
Understanding the way data is organised will allow you to use Grasshopper to its full potential and use Tree structures to your advantage. This course focuses specifically on the way data is organised in Grasshopper. We’ll be looking at data lists and nested lists, which Grasshopper organizes in so called Data Trees. The course is explained trough small examples to give you an idea how mastering data management can be very useful to you.
