Revit & Grasshopper Webinars in January

Create Complex Geometry & Efficient Workflows in Grasshopper: Beginner Level

Rhino’s free plugin, Grasshopper, is set to transform the profession of architecture.  Learn how it allows you to create complex geometry with ease, and how it’s great for streamlining 3d modeling workflows.

At the end of this webinar you will gain 3 Learning Units & will know how to:

  1. Implement multiple techniques to develop geometrically complex patterns that you can implement at any scale.
  2. Build a definition that will allow you to quickly study variations on a design idea.
  3. Extract useful data from your Grasshopper model in real-time as your model changes.
  4. Develop tools to unwrap organic geometry in preparation for fabrication.

Instructor- David Tracy, Designer @ Gensler & Black Spectacles Author
