Particle System

11m 35s

In this course, David Tracy will teach you how to use the Python programming language with Rhino to automate tasks, create complex forms, and simulate physical phenomena. This course will serve as a gentle introduction to programming to unlock capabilities for generative computational design with Rhino, Python, and Grasshopper.

First, you will be introduced to the core concepts of using Python in Rhino, such as drawing shapes with code, transformation, and variables. Then you will learn how to use classes and object oriented programming. Finally, you will learn how to integrate Grasshopper into your Python and Rhino workflow.

When we’re done, you will understand the core concepts of programming with Python, be able to author your own scripts, and create custom components in Grasshopper.

So we're just gonna do a four loop, so for I in range 100, we're gonna do particle system dot apply force, and we're gonna apply wind particle system apply force gravity, we're gonna do I'm sorry particle system one and particle system two dot apply force wind, particle system two dot apply force gravity and then we'll add the particles so we're gonna add a particle for each location so particle system one dot add particle and that's just gonna create a particle at the current location, particle system two add particle and then we're gonna run them. Hit run particle system two dot run. Okay.
