Ping-Hsiang Chen, a former computational designer at Zaha Hadid Architects, leads a three-day Grasshopper Level 2 online course. This hands-on experience explores computational geometry and parametric design principles. After the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

1. Have an in-depth understanding of data structure
2. Work between different geometry types such as NURBS, Mesh, and SubDs
3. Understand use cases of mesh geometry
4. Optimize workflow using blocks and caches
5. Work with layers, material, and views in your Rhino document

Day 1
Review Computational Geometry and Complex Geometry
Advanced Data Structure (Branch and Path Manipulation)
Data Grouping, Partition, Classification and Culling
Data Sorting, Sets
Conditional Statements
Custom Patterns and Domain

Day 2
Mesh Modelling Introduction
Mesh Subdivision and Topology Reconstruction
Mesh Optimization with ShrinkWrap
Introduction to Blocks
Create Block Attributes
Reference External Blocks

Day 3
Point Cloud Data Type
Introduction to Content Cache
Query Information from Rhino Document
Model Layer and Object Introduction
Model View Introduction

Course requirements: This course is for Grasshopper users with an intermediate level in Rhino. We welcome people from cross-disciplinary backgrounds in architecture, product design, jewelry design, engineering, fabrication, art, and more.

Online course fees: EUR 395,- (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers get a 50% discount (proof of status required). Please note that we will confirm your seat after your payment has cleared.
