AAD ALGORITHMS-AIDED DESIGN |PARAMETRIC STRATEGIES USING GRASSHOPPER

 AAD Algorithms Aided DEsign

The book “Algorithms-Aided Design” presents design methods based on the use of Grasshopper®, a visual algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhinoceros®, the 3D modeling software by McNeel & Associates allowing users to explore accurate freeform shapes. The book provides computational techniques to develop and control complex geometries, covering parametric modeling, digital fabrication techniques, form-finding strategies, environmental analysis and structural optimization. It also features case studies and contributions by researchers and designers from world’s most influential universities and leading architecture firms.

Main topics: Grasshopper environment and plug-in software; Parametric modeling and advanced data management; NURBS curves and surfaces; Meshes and Subdivision Surfaces; Digital fabrication techniques; Recursions; Form-finding strategies; Particle-spring systems; Topology Optimization; Evolutionary solvers; Environment-informed design

 augmented-reality-in-public-spaces This book, the first in a series, dedicated to New Technologies for the Arts, is aimed at all digital arts students (PC and MAC users) who want to try video mapping for the first time. Thanks to a course of reading that alternates theoretic concepts and practical exercises – explaining from how to take a photograph to how to request permission, from the layer masks to 2D and 3D animation, up to the final projection and warping – the reader will be able to project a video mapping event.Topics discussed: The history of video mapping; The choice of video projector; Layer masks in Illustrator®; After Effects® and video mapping; Cinema 4D®, 3D scenes, Camera Calibration …; Audio-video editing; Resolume Areana®, real time content and warping; The architectural survey; Mapping methods; Video mapping and bureaucracy

 simplified-complexity-rhino-eng Thanks to the growth of computational power and the development of new productiontechnologies, NURBS modeling has become the standard in many fields:Industrial Design, Architecture and, more recently, Engineering.Simplified Complexity is a method for learning NURBS modeling with Rhinoceros®.Born as the synthesis of twenty years of professional experience and teaching,Simplified Complexity consists of a structured knowledge system allowing deepunderstanding of the software. With this method the user can take advantage of Rhinoceros® full modeling potential.The idea behind Simplified Complexity is that even if the software has a clear andintuitive interface, NURBS geometry remains quite complex. In order to become aprofessional user, it is necessary to start from basic geometry knowledge: this willallow to foresee and avoid complexity or, if this is not possible, at least reduce it and optimize it.
