Python Coding in Grasshopper

In this video I demonstrate how to use the python coding palette in Grasshopper to create a short animation of real-time change in slider values. I output the frames as separate files which are then compiled in Photoshop as an MP4. The original code is found here. The code edited to import into Grasshopper is here. And the Grasshopper definition with the embedded code is here.

Water Jet File Prep

http://www-personal.umich.edu/~gwil/gendescom/post056/WATER_JET_PREP.mp4
In this video I cover how to unroll and prepare geometry for water jet cutting from 24 gauge steel. The process involves tabbing in addition to nesting with the software plug-in Rhino Nest. Some of the tools used to generate the geometry can be found in previous tutorials here and here. Total Length: 40.49
