More playing with physics simulation of Frei Otto soap film experiments. I am so impressed by how amazing kangaroo 2 is in Grasshopper. #kangaroophysics #grasshopper3d #rhino3d #parametricdesign #computationaldesign #simulation #formfinding

Using a time of flight distance sensor on an #Arduino to fold a virtual Ron Resch #origami #tessellation pattern in #rhino3d. Using #grasshopper3d, the amazing #kangaroophysics engine, and #fireflyexperiments with a firmware modified to include @adafruit 's fab library for the #vl53l0x.

Rhino + Grasshopper + Firefly + Arduino + potentiometer = tonight's 20 minute hack! The Hello world of firefly. From here my physical world can talk to my virtual world. Hell Yes! :) #rhino3d #grasshopper3d #fireflyexperiments #arduino #physicalcomputing #coding

4 Bar Linkage Simulation with Coupler Curve Generation

View this post on Instagram

A Grasshopper definition that plots the coupler curves for any 4 bar linkage mechanism. This has been a long term computational goal of mine. Yay. #4barlink #rhino3d #grasshopper3d #generativedesign #mechanicaldesign #mechanismdesign #engineeringdesign #kangaroophysics #computationaldesign
