Grasshopper Level 2 Online Course
April 19–21, 2022
10 AM–5 PM CET

Hosted on Zoom by McNeel Europe

The upcoming Grasshopper Level 2 Course is for professionals who would like to get an in-depth-understanding of parametric design principles in Grasshopper. In the three-day course, our tutor Ping-Hsiang Chen (computational designer at Zaha Hadid Architects) will explore SubD and QuadRemesh features from Rhino 7 to tackle complex geometric problems. The course will focus on concepts such as data flow control, data management, behavior-driven modeling, iterative modeling, and learning how to create feedback loops using algorithms to optimize and benchmark design options.
