GRASSHOPPER CHALLENGE

Semester 2 2013Name: Kailing WangStudent No. 514464

• WEEK 1

POP 3D VORONOI PATTERNS

• Lofting and offset surface

In the first three weeks, I have learnt the basic parameters in Grasshop-per, and I tried to write some simple definitions with these parameters. This is a very important stage that allow us exploring the ideas by using parametric modelling tools. In addition, this is the first time that I touched this design area, which the outcomes are controlled by the parameters in Grasshopper.

WEEK 2

• WEEK 3

• WEEK 4--- WEAVER BIRD

• WAFFLE SYSTEM

Blue BlockThe definition in the blue block represent the first stage of the waffle system. It divided the surface into x and y direction and created a box with 8 corners. And then divided the curves on the x-plane and y-plane. Next, it oriented the planes in it direction of each divi-sion point according to the reference point A.

Green BlockThe definition of the green block is made so you can set up the number of sections in the X and Y axis sepa-rately , also you can set up the height of each sections as well as the thickness of the ma-terial you are going to work with.

Pink BlockThe next stage is to make the x and y oriented plane into a surface to form the waffle system. Finally, the lattices in the x and y direction are created the grid of the waffle system. Then, we can bake the planar surface in the x and y direc-tion to form the waffle system.

Red BlockThe definition in the red block shows the method to create the gap for the construc-tion of the physical model. Finally the definitions orients al the parts to the X-Y axis with an ID tag so you can easily organize them and get them ready for the CNC mill or the laser cutter.
