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 with kind of this foundation that we've formed in the Python editor and Rhino, we're gonna move some of those skills into, we're gonna migrate some of those skills into Grasshopper. And before we can do that though, we need to add the Python component to Grasshopper, so we're going to go and search for Python component, Grasshopper, and the top hit is gonna be Food4Rhino, and the component is called GhPython. And what this is gonna do is this is gonna add a Python editor component to Grasshopper.
