Grasshopper


Here are a couple of quick studies using Grasshopper, a kind of Visual Programming Language which works with Rhino3D.

Boxes rotated by a Laplacian field (as I wrote more about earlier):

And some Kinematics:

This ties in with some of my earlier work on deployable structures

Most deployable structures research has (more…)

These are Rheotomic Surfaces – from the Greek

Rheo – flow

and

Tomos – cut or section (as in tomography)

The horizontal sections of these surfaces correspond to the moving equipotential lines of a 2D Laplacian flow, with height mapped to time. Such surfaces are complete, embedded and walkably connected.
