Parametric Architecture Triangulated Pattern Isotrim Subdivision of Base Surface with Grasshopper For Rhino 3D

Welcome to DCO_Parametric!

In today's blog, we'll guide you through the process of creating a Triangulated Subdivided Surface using parametric design techniques. Whether you're an architect, designer, or just curious about parametric modeling, this tutorial will provide you with valuable insights.

Welcome to DCO! I'm David Copete, and today, I'm here to guide you through a practical parametric design tutorial using Grasshopper for Rhino. Let's dive right in!

1. Getting Started:

  • Begin with a plain surface in Grasshopper.

  • Subdivide the surface into smaller panels using Grasshopper's default components like Isotrim.

2. Crafting the Pattern:

  • Transform the subdivided panels into a dynamic triangulated pattern.

  • Customize the pattern by adjusting parameters such as subdivisions and minimum/maximum values.

3. Application to Real Scenarios:

  • Apply the dynamic pattern to real-world scenarios, such as columns and beams.

  • Witness the transformative impact of the pattern on these structures.

4. Adding Randomness:

  • Infuse the design with randomness to add an element of surprise and dynamism.

  • Experiment with random elements to enhance the visual appeal of the pattern.

5. Empowering Creativity:

  • Grasshopper's intuitive interface makes parametric design accessible to all levels of expertise.

  • Unleash your creativity and explore the endless possibilities of parametric design.

6. Join the Journey:

  • Dive into the tutorial, experiment with different parameters, and let your creativity soar.

  • Reach out if you have questions or need assistance—we're here to help!
