Human UI & Quelea plugins

https://www.food4rhino.com/app/human-ui

Check out Human UI for making aesthetically pleasing, interactive scripts. Might be helpful for when you’re making videos next week?

Also Mia found Quelea – agent based systems in grasshopper plugin form:

Suggestive, not literal architectural drawings

We’ve been discussing a lot the idea of how to represent your second project so that they have an architectural language (but perhaps not literal sections in a building with floor slabs and people). Here are two references we were showing around, so you have the links. Happy section making!

ETH’s NCCR Digital Fabrication has launched a project website. The website has detailed information about the project’s design concept, its building site NEST, and all of the architecture and construction innovations which are being transferred for the first time from the laboratory to a real construction project: the “In situ Fabricator”, “Mesh Mould”, “Smart Slab”, “Smart Dynamic Casting”, and “Spatial Timber Assemblies”

Fabricate texts available for download

The FABRICATE team is delighted to announce that all three volumes of the FABRICATE publications (2011, 2014 and 2017) are now available as FREE e-books through UCL Press. Check the many projects where Rhino and Grasshopper were involved!
