Rhinoscript Work

A little over a month ago I went to a 3 day workshop in Chicago that was part of the Acadia conference. I was looking forward to an intensive 8-9hrs a day for 3 days - for better comprehension - and was not disappointed. Below are a few images of some things that came out of the workshop - nothing refined yet - but also an opportunity to play around with vray for rhino - as I usually do most of my rendering in max.

My plan is to do a sort of comparative analysis between rhinoscript and grasshopper. The question being - what is the advantage of learning script if we have tools such as grasshopper and paneling tools - through which we can create similar forms? Which is apparent through some of the examples below. My first conclusion is that understanding - at least some fundamentals of scripting - has helped me comprehend geometry, functionality, and logic of grasshopper to a greater degree - also there is obviously a greater selection of tools available in scripting then in grasshopper - although many you have to run through command lines (not actually part of the script) such as, pipe, patch, and fillet. My intention is to cover scripting in future versions of the Generative Design Computing Class. More scripting stuff to come...
