Python Programming

Overview

Python Level 1+ Basic & Intermediate Programming for Rhino and Grasshopper
 


The next 3-day Python Class takes place on 12th, 13th & 14th February 2020 at the Simply Rhino Training Centre, London.

This 3-day Python class with Long Nguyen requires no previous knowledge of programming or scripting, only Rhino and Grasshopper. There is a maximum of 8 attendees only on the class so students can expect individual support.

Python is an increasingly popular programming language widely used in many fields, from 3D modelling, web programming, to scientific computing, artificial intelligence, etc.

Being a modern programming language, the language has simple and clean syntax, making it very accessible to beginners.

Thanks to Rhino and Grasshopper’s official support of Python users can programmatically access its powerful 3D modeling environment, including all essential features of its advanced NURBS engine. This opens up many new exciting possibilities, such as:

  • Building simple scripts/tools that automate repetitive modeling tasks, boosting efficiency
  • Developing and customizing tools and workflow specific to your team's needs
  • Programming advanced design algorithms that are not possible with standard out-of-the-box tools
  • Using Python as a creative design tool
  • Interfacing Rhino and Grasshopper with other software programs
     


 

This 3-day course will cover the following topics:

  • Intro to Python fundamental programming concepts: variable, data, data types, conditional statements, loops, data structure
  • The Python code editor in Rhino and Grasshopper
  • Creating and debugging simple Rhino commands using Python, etc.
  • Intro to RhinoCommon library
  • Creation and editing of points, vectors, curves and surfaces.
  • Objected-oriented programming
  • Reading and writing text files
  • Generating and controlling randomness (e.g. random geometric variations)
  • Working with colors
  • Additional topics if requested by the participants (e.g. recursion, fractals)
