Rhino + Grasshopper: Bridget Riley Redux

In this tutorial I remake Bridget Riley's 'Shift' as a parametric pattern in Rhino. I show how you can use a series of control lines in Rhino to control and vary the patterning in the entire surface. I plan to show variations on this set-up in future tutorials. Total length: 16minutes

Here is the definition and the Rhino file.

Rhino + Grasshopper: Justin's Box on a Surface

Here are the definitions and rhino file that Justin developed. They contain two simple lofts with cubes oriented along the surface. The first definition is pretty simple. The second, allows for the generating curves to adjust and alter the surface which changes the pattern of boxes.

Rhino + Grasshopper: 1 Attractor Point [Square]

This is a derivation of the first tutorial in which I show how to replace the circle with a variable 3 or 4 sided shape. I also cover 'baking' the grasshopper file and bringing closed vector lines into illustrator to create a graphic. Total time: 13.30 minutes.

The definition file can be downloaded here.
