McNeel Europe and Long Nguyen, research associate at ICD Stuttgart, are presenting two Python workshops this April 8-9/10-12. Python is an increasingly popular programming language widely used in many fields, from 3D modeling, web programming, to scientific computing, artificial intelligence, etc.

Its simple and clean syntax makes it accessible to beginners. Rhino and Grasshopper officially support Python, allowing the users to 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 workflows that are 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

Python level 1 course: (No knowledge of programming or scripting required, only Rhino and Grasshopper.)

  • Intro to Python fundamental programming concepts: variable, data, data types, conditional statements, loops, data structure
  • The Python code editor in Rhino and Grasshopper
  • Creating simple Rhino commands Using Python, etc.
  • RhinoScriptSyntax library
  • Intro to RhinoCommon library

Python level 2 course: (Requires familiarity of Python programming language.)

  • Understanding the pros and cons of using RhinoScriptSyntax vs. RhinoCommon
  • Working with RhinoCommon geometry: Curve, Mesh, Surface, Brep
  • Objected-oriented programming in Python
  • Randomness
  • Generating and editing texts
  • Reading/writing files
  • Working with DataTree using Python
  • Global Sticky Variables
  • Using Python with Grasshopper timer

So… what’s in the level 2 course?
Edit: Oh wait, I see on the Rhino news page. It got mixed up in one of the bullet points here.

Thanks for pointing that formatting problem out. I’ve fixed it now.
