Introduction to Scripting with C# for Grasshopper in Rhino3D :: ISC Open

In this course, we introduce you to the programming language C#, which we use as a scripting language in Grasshopper for Rhino3D. This scripting knowledge is necessary to have more control of your Grasshopper definition.

Urban Modeling and Simulation :: UMS 19.2

In this course, we introduce you to the basic theories of models and systems, as well as to urban simulation methods based on scripting techniques with C# in Grasshopper for Rhino 3D. We model spatial systems on different abstraction levels focussing on models for interactions between land uses.

Urban Modeling and Simulation :: UMS Advanced Open

In this course, you learn to work with advanced urban modeling and simulation techniques based and system dynamics methods. We deal with the modeling of complex spatial systems on the regional and urban level. In this context, computational analysis methods for urban fabric and models for computing interactions between land uses are introduced.
