									Questions Log: Generative Jewelry with Rhino 5 beta and Grasshopper
February 17, 2012


Q: Love the idea of procedural modeling! Go on


Q: does it work with the Rhino version for Mac?A: Not yet but it is planned.

Q: Dose it work with rhino for mac? and if not will it?
A: It is planned, but not yet.

Audience Question:
Q: where can we learn the software from?
A: http://www2.mcneel.com/training/final_summary.asp?ScheduleID=10512&template=Rhino

Audience Question:
Q: does this can be easily run on current Ipad ?
A: Grasshopper? or the training video? No for Grasshopper (there is a Rhino model viewer for the iPad.) Yes the video will stream from the Vimeo site.

Q: Is there going to be an actual demonstration of grasshopper, or this just about why we should use it? I'm already a user, just looking to get better.[
A: Yes here it is. But it is an intro.

Q: Great! please let us know when the video is at the Vimeo site, thanks
A: Yes - we are recording this. We will email you the Vimeo link later today. We will also blog it to the News area of the Rhino web site.

Q: Is there a guidance how to prepare the outcome from Grasshopper for STL or other AM processes? Like how to attach support structures to generative model?
A: The Grasshopper definition will need to be baked into a model. Then standard rules for sending to STL apply. Generally the application that runs the 3d printer
does the support stucture.

Audience Question:
Q: Is the GJD3D panel available for downlaod
A: Download Grasshopper here http://www.grasshopper3d.com/page/download-1

Q: Sorry, I was refering to the Generative Jewellery tools panel that he clicked the Grasshopper icon from.
A: Robert - I will ask.

Audience Question:
Q: grasshopper is available on rhino 4.0?
A: Yes

Audience Question:
Q: grasshopper is available on rhino 4.0
A: Here is the link... http://www.grasshopper3d.com/

Audience Question:
Q: what about the Mac version of Rhino ?
A: No, Grasshopper does not work for Mac

Q: Why did he connect to "C" and not to the "N" or "K" first?
A: See the Grasshoppe Help on the control specifics.

Q: I'm very new exploring with t-splines, is this compatible? or is it a total different approach?
A: Totally different approach. Grasshopper is a definition.

Q: location of the base points are 0,0, how is it shifted?
A: Gabriel, where are the points at 0,0?

Q: I can see it now, but I guess my internet is too slow, voice is good, but not video, it's too slow
A: Yes - we are recording this. We will email you the Vimeo link later today. We will also blog it to the News area of the Rhino web site.

Q: I can see it now, but I guess my internet is too slow, voice is good, but not video, it's too slow
A: We will be posting a recording so you may be able to watch it in full later.


Q: on tthe construction plane
A: That is where he origally drew the circle.

Audience Question:
Q: is the gumball from grasshopper?
A: No the GumBall is a Rhino 5 beta feature!

Q: where did Andre dougle click to get the pipe option
A: From the Surface menu.

Audience Question:
Q: What I'm trying to ask is how do you know which letter to plug from and to?
A: Laurie - the Grasshopper Help will define the input for the batteries. Depending on the control the letters mean something different.

Audience Question:
Q: can we use gemstones from rhinogold or matrixin grasshopper?
A: You can but use any Rhino geometry. But you may do something with it in Grasshopper like array.

Q: are the curves piped as well?
A: No. Not yet.

Q: when Andres move the gumball, the lines are moving real time. is that new in 5.0?
A: Yes - Simon direct editing in Rhino 5.
Audience Question:
Q: would grasshopper eliminate the need for paneling plug in?
A: No because some prefer direct modeling not generative model - at least currently.

Audience Question:
Q: how efficient is grasshopper while running with rhino? It almost looks as it is not heavy at all and doesnt require much memeory from your machine[
A: These Grasshopper definition files are small - but they can get very, very complex. When you generate the model it can take alot time and resources depending
on the complexity.

Audience Question:
Q: can we use any rhino geometry to substitute the pipes?
A: You would need to do a Sweep of a different cross section curve, instead of a pipe.

Audience Question:
Q: The Alt key works in Rhino 4 with the Gumball plugin?
A: No, the Gumball plugin for in Rhino 4 does not. Rhino 5 Gumball feature has now moved beyond the prototyping of the Labs tool.

Q: when you presented pattern component (with 4 boolans connected) input for patttern component was "flattened " without explanation. As far as I know it is
connected with how grasshopper treats lists/strings . Can it be explained a bit later or is it too advanced for this webinar?
A: I will ask! Thanks.

Audience Question:
Q: rhino[Hugo Cordeiro]
A: You are right! So assign it to a Grasshopper component Bounding Box.

Audience Question:
Q: Will this be available later to view again?
A: Yes, it's being recorded. We will post the link later today

Audience Question:
Q: Will this be available later to view again?
A: Yes - we are recording this. We will email you the Vimeo link later today. We will also blog it to the News area of the Rhino web site.

Audience Question:
Q: i missed how the grasshopper curve connects to rhino?
A: You press and drag from a battery to create the connections. It is kind of magic!

Q: could you show the randomizer control of the heights? How do I write this? Do I simply plug a randomizer into the height
A: I will ask.

Q: hi, I am leaving the office in few minutes. Please say "ciao" to Dana and Andres. Good job! I'll check the remaining part on vimeo ;)
A: Very good. Thanks for attending!

Q: I copied once a definition similar to this, and it worked fine. The problem was when I cooked it into rhino. When I tried to boolean nite the tiles. If I analiced it it
tells me that it is an unvalid nonmaliform object. How to sove that?
A: Let me ask Andres to follow up by email. Can you email me the definition file? Include the error. mary@mcneel.com


Q: So I guess No grasshopper manual in french ?
A: I will need to ask. I do not beleive it has been translated - but it can happen.

Q: could you show the randomizer control of the heights? How do I write this? Do I simply plug a randomizer into the height?
A: Kevin: instead of a "boundary" you would need to Exturde a surface or curve and add a "randomizing" componet with a usable domaine to the height field. I will
look for a "random" example if you email me mary@mcneel.com .

Q: In the powerpoint showed a grasshopper's window (I think, but I'm not sure) with some gems and some parameters. What was this? It is a grashhoper library?
A: I will ask.

Q: Each of the tile sections is straight - it does not follow the curve. Is there a way to have it follow the curve?
A: Yes you would need to use UDT command like Flow.


Audience Question:
Q: Will there be problmems with coplanar surfaces when you make bolean union?
A: Yes - but Rhino 5 is better than Rhino 4 in this area.

Q: can I get a copy of the questions and answers here?
A: Yes, Thomas. I will send it to you.

Audience Question:
Q: Andrés, can you generate the stl insisde GH?? or just in rhino?
A: No you will bake the model and saveas or export to STL.


Audience Question:
Q: since the gumball has more advantages with rhino 5 is it that we will be missing too much in rhino4?
A: You are not missing anything in Grasshopper. Just the new Rhino 5 features like Gumball.

Q: I haven't got the definition, and I was trying to send the rhino file but it is too heavy for the e-mail. I'll try to send just a part of it. Althou I think that the problem is
that that th tiles are coplanar, or may be they do not intersect.
A: Got it. Here is the upload to FTP http://www2.mcneel.com/upload/Upload.aspx

Audience Question:
Q: I am now seeing the window that I meant and I see that is a group of parameters within grasshopper with a representative image.
A: Laura - need to ask him about the Generative Jewellery tools panel .

Audience Question:
Q: Are there differences between GH for Rhino 4 and Rhino 5?
A: Grasshopper is the same. It is literally the same plugin for Rhino 4 and Rhino 5 32. Then there is a 64 bit build for Rhinoo 5 64bit. They are all the same!

Q: Can you make a window with sliders?
A: The slider is a control that provides input for a control. Any input can be controlled by a slider

Audience Question:
Q: can we get access to a few tutorials of grasshopper ?
A: http://www.grasshopper3d.com/page/tutorials-1

Q: will it be possible to email the tutrioal done in this webinaar(the grasshopper file with the rhinofile of the panel design?
A: I will ask!

Audience Question:
Q: which rendering software is used in the images andres is showin?
A: Brazil http://brazil.mcneel.com/

Audience Question:
Q: Hey, is Grasshopper using multiple cores when computing its geometry? Can imagine that that is a big issue![
A: Yes - Rhino 5 itself is multi-threaded when it works to be and the task is not linear.

Audience Question:
Q: can V-Ray be used as well?
A: Yes! of course it is just a Rhino model after it is baked.

Audience Question:
Q: Please post this tool palett on the website and include the support models as well
A: Hi Robb. The GJD tool palette will be posted here... http://www.gjd3d.com/

Audience Question:
Q: thanks for the great effort on organising the webinar
A: Of course. Thank you all for attending today!


Q: Could you please tell if there are going to be other Webinars?
A: Of course - send any ideas to Mary@mcneel.com.

Audience Question:
Q: will Grasshopper work well with Matrix 7?
A: Hi Tony - Matrix is a parametric modeler itself. For a design you may use one or the other.

Audience Question:
Q: Will the GH definition files be posted as well?
A: I will try! It should not be a problem. I just need to get them from Andres, maybe next week - cuz of the long weekend.

Audience Question:
Q: This has been a really useful introduction to Grasshopper
A: In addition to this webinar, we have an online "Intro to Grasshopper" class coming up in a couple weeks. Details are here for those of you the may be
interested...http://www2.mcneel.com/training/final_summary.asp?ScheduleID=10512&template=Rhino


Audience Question:
Q: Hi, we would like to know if you plan to have a webinar on Architectural Design (use of Grasshopper for Architectural Design and Steel Fabrication) any time in
the near future ?
A: Great suggestion! I arrange one with Andres.


Audience Question:
Q: The GJD_150 Weave Skin. Is that part of Grasshopper or was that made by the presenter? If made, how is that done?
A: It is an definition from a user. If it can't be shared we will work a similar example for you.

Audience Question:
Q: is there any chance to watch this webinar again?
A: Yes - we are recording this. We will email you the Vimeo link later today. We will also blog it to the News area of the Rhino web site.
