C# Scripting and Plugin Development for Grasshopper
March 20, 22, 23, 2017
9:30-13:00 and 14:30-18:00 (GMT+1)

This year ICD (Institute for Computational Design) will livestream the 3-day workshop C# Scripting and Plugin Development for Grasshopper organized by its Research Associate Long Nguyen.

C# provides high-performance interaction with Rhino/Grasshopper modeling via scripting and programming. This allows you to go beyond what is normally possible with the native features.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Basic C# programming, the .NET framework and concepts in objected-oriented programming
  • Going beyond visual programming in Grasshopper with the C# component
  • The RhinoCommon API, the library that allows you to interact with Rhino/Grasshopper programmatically
  • How to write plug-ins for Grasshopper with Microsoft Visual Studio and the Grasshopper API
  • Program a fast and interactive flocking simulation inside Rhino/Grasshopper
  • A short introduction to computational complexity and spatial data structure
  • Accessing C# code using Python
  • And more…

Everyone is welcome to watch the workshop’s livestream. If you wish to follow and get your hands dirty, you need to download and install the following software tools:
