dataflow diagram

About to finish the well-defined section of this year’s Parametric Modeling course, here are the mid-term questions I’ve asked; First question checks if the curve < > point conversions are well understood in Grasshopper. Evaluating a parametric curve and generating closest point from another curve. This also requires a basic understanding on the use of Grasshopper interface. Second question was testing a basic and classical use of attractors on grids of objects. Students generated their own grids and put pyramids on each cell, as the height of these pyramids would […]

This is a great site, explaining very familiar concepts of dataflow diagrams for designers from the first hand. Leveling is an interesting chapter there, I’m not sure if it completely fits with the use of “Clusters” in Grasshopper but it is obvious that the complex systems should be well organized not only to be perceptually “better” ones but also to develop a way to use parts of definitions again and again in diffierent situations. …How do you actually DO the leveling of DFDs? The discussion thus far has been misleading in […]
