You can also check out the group for Kangaroo on the grasshopper forum. Daniel Christev also has a good video detailing the differences. Tutorial by: Hwan Kim ([email protected]). Intro. Kangaroo is an add-on for Grasshopper/Rhino and Generative Components which embeds physical.

However, Kangaro believe that this post really sheds light on how these kinds of studies may directly influence and enhance our understanding and perhaps even the future of our built environment. They necessarily have zero mean curvature, i.

After all, Carl Sagan famously suggested that, in the event of extra terrestrial contact, we might use various universal principles and facts of mathematics and science to communicate. I have been researching Miura pattern origami as a structural solution for rapidly deployable structures.

Kangaroo –

Kangaroo 2 is a bit more user friendly and more efficient, but 0. Roof shells have compressive stresses along the convex curvature, and tensile stress along the concave curvature. In fact, you could use any pattern under the sun — any motif your heart desires even tessellated puppies. Sagrada Familia — Gdasshopper.

Of course the process can also be reversed, allowing the curve to flow seamlessly from one space to another. We can keep adding pairs of points along the edge. Soap bubbles are a great example of this phenomenon. Each curve looks for the shortest path between each pair without leaving the surfacebut only has access to single curvature.


Grids, shells, and how they, in conjunction with the study of the natural world, can help us develop increasingly complex structural geometry. Frei Otto is a fine example of ecological literacy at its finest.

They are defined by a curved surface, where the material is thin in the direction perpendicular to the surface. Submit a new link. Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet.

For starters, they do not have to be so mathematically tidy, or geometrically pure. Frei Otto described this kind of structure as pneus. Mimicking the form of a cloud the easily recognisable form is transformed into Architecture; a sinuous billowing form allowing us to fulfil a childhood dream, walking on clouds.

The varying complexity of geometry, as well as the grasshkpper richness of detail, at different scales is a property uniquely shared with fractal nature. He even wrote a series of books on the way that the morphology of bird skulls and spiderwebs could be applied to architecture called Biology and Building.

This method of approximating a TPMS is high versatile, useful in understanding the geometry, offsetting the surfaces and changing the bounding box of the lattice in which the surface is generated.

The University of Southern California published a paper exploring the topic further: And I think the same can be said regarding the study of fractals. This followed by 3D grsashopper space packing. Inflation pressure in spheres Collision force between the spheres Collision force of spheres and bounding box Surface tension of spheres Weight.

In this example Rhino is used with Grasshopper and Kangaroo 2. The examples below present various gyroid distorsions generated by changing the boundary conditions.



A Gyroid surface approximated with the above method. In the case of the original space-filling curve, the goal was to fill all of infinite space. That being said, modern day engineers and architects continue to push this envelope, kzngaroo with varying levels of success.

Reducing the rest length of each of these curves while keeping the edges anchored makes them pull on all of their neighbours, resulting in a locally minimal surface. These are surfaces that are locally area-minimizing — surfaces that have the smallest possible area for a defined boundary.

This in and of itself is pretty interesting and does lends itself to unique construction challenges and opportunities. Since one-dimensional curves do have an orientation in digital modeling, geodesic curves can be described as the one-dimensional counterpart to plank lines, and can benefit from the same definition.

A closed TMPS can also be approximated by changing the domain of the function to 1.

Kangaroo 2 is still being actively developed, so there are components in 0. An especially crucial aspect of gridshells is the bracing. However, assigning grasdhopper dimension to certain shells can be tricky, since it kinda depends on how zoomed in you are.
