Switching UV Direction of Surface

In this short video I demonstrate how to switch the UV direction of a surface. This can be useful if you've created a code to run on a surface where geometry is effected by surface direction. If anyone knows of a quicker, more efficient way to do this please mention it in the comments below. Video Length: 4.25

Online Course in Python/Rhinoscript
Hi everyone! Over the last year I have been working on an online stand alone course in Python/Rhinoscript with a team of great people at the Center for Academic Innovation here at University of Michigan. The course is 5 weeks long and covers the fundamentals of Python and Rhinoscript. I tried to be as methodical as possible in covering the absolute fundamentals of this coding environment, so someone with no previous coding experience could establish comprehension with that material in a fairly short time. At least a basic knowledge of 3D modeling with Rhinocerous is essential though. Click on the image above for more information and/or to sign-up. Or follow this link:

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
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
