Day 3 | to Grasshopper: Excersize 1

Date: 17.06.2020

Software used: Rhino6 , Grasshopper

 

Excersize 1

The exercise was to create a pattern by scaling the geometries in ascending or descending order from a point or a curve. The method is called point attractor. A series of points are created in a grid using a rectangular array. A geometry is created at this point (sphere in this case).A point(in rhino) is assigned to grasshopper such that it falls within the boundary of the array grid. The remapping of the values of distances of each volume of the geometry from the point created in rhino scales the radius of the geometry such that the closest geometry has minimum radius while the farthest geometry has the maximum radius. Further the geometry can be deleted in ascending sequence from closest to farthest from the point using Cull Index. Moreover, this was done again but by replacing a point with a curve. Following this exercise, a basic script was done to create different patterns using offset and random  of a rectangle.

Tools Used: Rectangular array, Point, Sphere, Remap numbers, Distance, Bounds, Sort list, Curve, Cull Index, Rectangular array, Offset, Random.

Grid of points using Rectangular Array.

 

Creating geometry(sphere) at the array points.

 

Remapping radius of the sphere. Increase in the radius of the spheres in ascending order the point.

 

Culling the geometry(sphere) which is nearer to the point.

 

Remapping radius of the geometry using a curve.

 

Various patterns generated by changing the seed value or the number of counts of the offset of the rectangle.
