GRASHOOPER A tool for generative modeling that allows you to create parametric models, parametric architecture in Rhinoceros 3D environment Interface plug-in The process of modeling in Grasshopper is the creation of an algorithm. At Grasshopper the interface, it means that we write the script text, and we connect years and we set some options. The algorithm consists of the initial data or parameters and the sequence of actions with them. As a result, geometry and related information (volumes, areas, markings, sizes) are generated. With the help of noses and parameters, geometry can be changed, you need to change the value of one year and make a shift, and all geometry will be rebuilt. Thus, in Grasshopper we create not only a model, but the logic of its behavior. Once you have created a script, you can reuse it and edit it further. In this model, the task was to build a geometry dependent on the point of attraction. Attractors in a rectangular node You can add an attractor to a suitable site in three ways: drag the element onto the agent chart or use the drawing mode, in which case the graphics editor will select the shapes suitable for setting the attractor; or select the node and add the attractors by clicking the Attractors button … in the node properties. The created geometry is easily changed by changing the parameters of the code components.
Class: Technology, 3d printing Software: Autocad 2018, 3ds max, Ultimaker Cura Materials: pla 3mm Challenges:
  • project model for laser 3d printing
  • learn how to work with 3d printer and software for it
  • create part for fixing main model for city project class


I needed main axis of rotation for model at city project class. This axis had to be very small size, less then inner diametr of bearing, insight which I put my axis – 5 mm. 3D printer was the only appropriate machine for such task.

Design project

First of all 3d model in 3ds max was created. Then I put this model into Ultimaker Cura and set preferences for printing.  There is option in Ultimaker Cura  to use support or not to use ( but you can’t tune support) and to set the print density.
