Introduction to Scripting with C# for Grasshopper in Rhino3D :: ISC 18.2

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 Advanced 19.1

In this course, you learn to work with advanced urban modeling and simulation techniques. Based on theories of spatial economy, we introduce the modeling of complex spatial systems on the regional and urban level with Grasshopper for Rhino3D.

Urban Modeling and Simulation :: UMS Basics 18.2

In this course, we introduce you to the basic theories of models and systems, as well as to urban simulation methods with Grasshopper for Rhino 3D. We model spatial systems on different abstraction levels and integrate computational analysis methods for urban fabric and models for interactions between land uses.

Parametric Urban Design & Analysis :: PUDA 18.2

In this course, you will first learn to create parametric models, that allow to quickly generate a large number of design variants. Secondly, you will get introduced to spatial analysis methods in order to identify different qualities of the generated urban forms.
