Algorithms-Aided Design by Arturo Tedeschi? *** New components in GH1.0 ***

Keep seeing this popup on grasshopper searches and I noticed it on Amazon the other day. It’s a bit pricey, looks good but I’m skeptical of the 2014 publish date. Is this still relevant?

I know there are a million videos on GS online and I use them but I love a psychical book sometimes.

I have this book, and in my opinion this book is still relevant. Maybe the price has decreased because Arturo Tedeschi intends to release the newer edition.

Since it is about grasshopper 1.0 , and grasshopper 2.0 is not released yet, I think it is a good start for grasshopper beginners. So yes it is relevant and nicely illustrated.

It’s about GH 0.9 or? Maybe really small things changed due to 1.0, but I agree with the others.

The main difference between 0.9 and 1.0 is a boatload of bug fixes and a couple of new components. There are no fundamental changes to how the program works or looks.


…which are those new components of 1.0 ?

Good question, I suppose.

GH > Help > Version History in GH 1.0.0004 only has changes between version 0.9.0075 and version 0.9.0076; not from that last version forward…

There is also:
Data Input & Data Output (Params > Util)
Relay (Params > Util or double click a wire)
Quad Sphere (Surface>Primitive)
GHPython Script (Math>Script)


Would be nice to have the Help > Version History > "Grasshopper Version History " updated to 1.0.

Thanks, didn’t know of data input/output

D’oh! I completely forgot to keep that file up to date.


Two more I noticed:
Fit Loft
Control Point Loft

GH1.0 new (43.6 KB)


And some news in Panel Surface Utils

Any idea how to get those? Just tried updating R6 again but says I am all the way up to date.

Choose Service Release Candidate in Options -> Updates & Statistics

Service Release Candidate, not Service Release:

Ignore the (Daily) options, I get those because I’m a developer.


BTW seems Interpolate(t) appears twice (Seems the old one escaped exile)
