ARCH362 Basics: Site Model
Site models could be calculated for laser cut easily using Grasshopper’s native components. This definition was a practical one we’ve created in Parametric Modeling course to see that Grasshopper could also be utilized to prepare fabrication documents not generating design outcomes. However this definition is a draft one and could be improved more by putting labels inside of each cut pieces, trimming the edges properly and so on. It is good news for students at least that they have a chance to generate topography models from the AutoCAD maps mostly used in Turkey. They can simply import the points of these maps and then apply patch in Rhino or Grasshopper to create the surface.
