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.

For instance, in our math class, when we import math, so in our math class we have access to things like, sine, cosine, and tangent. Things like that so these are a few of many, many methods that are included in this math class. So we're gonna start writing our own classes and so what this is useful for is we can start creating elements that have built-in functions and intelligence of their own.
