Using Grasshopper for Rhino we were asked to create a lighting fixture using generative design. The design needed to include at least one parameter that could be easily changeable to create a bespoke and unique product.
The final 3D printed model
Coding Diagram showing the code for the final design as well as experimental code why tried and tested throughout the design process
This is a simplified schematic diagram breaking down the different sections of code that create the final design.
Just some of the variations that can be achieved by changing the parameters. Our design included 4 changeable parameters which would affect the final design, the shape of the outside ‘cage’, the internal ‘vase’ shape, the pattern of the outside ‘bars’, and the size of the pattern on the internal ‘vase’ surface.
