Conferencia ITESM ,Qro

El proximo lunes 1 de Noviembre estaré junto con mis compañeros del colectivo Chido Studio dentro del Ciclo de conferencias de la SAARQ del Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey campus Queretaro , impartiendo una platica con la tematica de el Diseño Parametrico y su aplicación en proyectos arquitectonicos , donde explicaremos un poco de la teoría y conceptos basicos de estas metodologias para todas aquellas personas interesadas en incursionar en este ambito.
Si tienes posibilidades de asistir ahi te esperamos.

Populating components Diagrid Box [Grasshopper]

Many of us have probably used the popular method of proliferating a component over surface using the box surface and box morphing components which actually is very useful , however it has the limitation that you can only arrange your components in a quadrangular grid and there maybe sometimes we need a different arrange or sequence for populating our surfaces, last weekend I was talking about this with Marysol Kraviez a student of the DIA Master at Dessau of and she send me a discussion from the Grasshopper page of people addressing this problem, I found very good and interesting approaches and I decided to make a  small contribution by making a definition based on one that I saw over there for creating box surfaces in a diagrid arrange using a VB script I have used for other works, hope you find it useful.

As always you can find more about this project and the definition for download at my  SITE

Glassware design with Grasshopper

During the weekend I worked on a consultancy project for the industrial designer Lina Fuentes who designed some glassware pieces which had some vintage diamond patterns on it , modeling this patterns by traditional techniques can be a little bit difficult and tedious, also the control you may have over the elements cannot be so accurate , to solve this I was asked to generate a small algorithm in grasshopper that allows the creation of these patterns in a  more efficient way, for example to have control over the number of elements in each direction of the surface and the height of each component.

Arduino + Grasshopper & Firefly experiment

Some weeks ago Andy Payne from Lift Architects announced the release of his first version plugin Firefly which is a specialized set of tools dedicated to bridging the gap between the Arduino interface and Grasshopper , currently the plugin has two components one for receiving data coming from sensors and the other to send parametric data from grasshopper to some sort of actuator via Arduino.

I think Firefly is a great tool for prototyping projects that involve sensors and actuators , because before you actually build it, with this tool you can first model a digital muck up to see how your project elements will behave with real sensor data, so then you can port that same logic to build your real project.

HERE is an experiment I made sending data from a photoresistor to Grasshopper to create a Responsive Structure that reacts to the degree of light of a physical space in real time.

Workshop Advanced Modelling Experience

Last Month we had the Advanced Modelling Workshop at Queretaro city , together with Luis de la Parra and Daniel Camiro we started an initiative called Chido Studio with the purpose of organizing a series of Workshops in that city regarding parametric design strategies & digital fabrication for implementing them in different design processes . The workshop lasted 2 weekends and was divided in three main areas.
1)Traditional Modelling with Rhino
2)Rendering techniques for VRay on 3dMax
3) Parametric design using Grasshopper as our tool for editing algorithms.

I would like to congratulate all the participants for the results obtained during the Workshop , most of them had no prior experience with the softwares and yet the learning speed of the course was really impressive.At the end , participants ended with the basic tools and knowledge to start developing their own algorithms in order to approach their design problems in parametric and generative way.

Honeycomb Morphologies

A little preview of a Grasshopper definition I´m working on to generate a honeycomb structure system Im working to add several features , for example to be able to control the apertures of the systems according an external variable for example al the final work as well as the definition will be posted on my new site.
