Nate Miller reviews a few Grasshopper tools

Nate Miller of Proving Ground regularly offers respected opinions on generative design, such as his podcast discussion. Now, he has published his take on a few Grasshopper plug-ins. As Nate points out, for over 12 years, a vibrant digital design community has sprung up around Grasshopper, with its freely available plug-ins and tools that leverage “generative” concepts.

  • Evolutionary solver
  • Topology optimization
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence

You can find the tools he talks about, and others, through resources such as food4Rhino.
