Introduction to Python in Rhino

59s

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.

Hi, I'm David Tracy and today we're going to learn how to use the Python programming language with Rhino to automate tasks, create complex forms, and simulate physical phenomena. The ability to write code for creative applications has become increasingly important for the designer and extends beyond just architectural applications. This course will serve as a gentle introduction to programming to unlock capabilities for generative computational design with Rhino, Python, and Grasshopper.

When we're done, you will understand the core concepts of programming with Python, you'll be able to author your own scripts, and you'll be able to create custom components in Grasshopper. All of the files that we'll be using here today will be available to members on the course website. So let's get started.
