Dynamically add detail to your Rhino 3d model with Grasshopper

Don Semple - Level 1 - 1hr 4m

In this course, Don walks you through the process for dynamically adding detail to a schematic massing model.  The definition that you will build will give you an instant sense of scale as you're working in an early, schematic model.  You will also be able to see square footage quantities dynamically change as your sculpt your model.


When you're done with this course you'll have a grasshopper definition that you can use on your own projects.  It will add detail to your model like linework for floors and mullions as well as text showing square footage quantities.  


As Don builds the definition, he will share his strategies for working with Grasshopper so you learn how to build definitions that can be easily reused & shared with your colleagues.
