Grasshopper Online Courses, Classes, Training, Tutorials on ArchiStar

Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.

Explore new shapes using generative algorithms

Build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring with no knowledge of programming or scripting.

Grasshopper allows architects to use parametric design to improve the efficiency of their workflows. So what does this mean for you? Well, Grasshopper has several tools that help you automate menial tasks. Consider the software’s use of variables.

In most design software, you will need to copy and paste basic elements, such as lines, if you wish to use them again. Some software use matrixes to reduce the time this tasks take. Even then, it is often annoying. Grasshopper’s use of variables makes such actions easier. You only need to enter a number into your variable to create the desired number of elements.

Fully integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools

Grasshopper's visual programming tools allow you to work with complex shapes and surfaces and create rules and parameters that can be easily adjusted and updated.

Over time, Grasshopper allows the designer to create a full library of previously used ideas and elements. You can access these modules with the click of a mouse.

Grasshopper also benefits from being an open source software. It has a community around it that constantly develops new plugins. Coupled with that, Grasshopper links closely with Rhino 3D. This integration eliminates the need to understand coding when using Rhino 3D.

What our Members are Saying

We are excited to roll out this world-class training platform to our Australian and overseas offices.

This learning platform is world class. Our first and second-year students are now producing work previously only reserved for Masters-level students.

I really enjoyed the videos, they are so clear and easy to understand. So amazing to see what can be done with Rhino!

If you want to get ideas out of your brain and into 3D design, or even to 3D printing like me, this is the place to go.
