Grasshopper and Rhino parametric design abstracted 3D volumes generated from curves to make a hand model.

Creating 3D Volumes Using Curves And Grasshopper

In Concept 20XX Projects by AndrewLeave a Comment

I’m testing out a method to generate abstracted 3D volumes using only basic curves modelled in Rhinoceros 3D along with the Grasshopper plugin. The key to this method is the simple script I made in Grasshopper that generates a¬†cluster of surfaces with semi-random placement and rotation around each curve to give the sense of a 3-dimensional volume. This has turned out to be a useful way to quickly represent abstracted 3D objects and give mass to a concept at the early stages.

Below are a few examples of this method in action!
