On this course you will learn the fundamental aspects of Grasshopper’s Physics Engine Kangaroo as well as some of the form-finding strategies you can achieve with it. We’ll start by going through the basic components of Kangaroo and how to set up your engine to start doing your first simulation. Then we’ll go through the main force components to achieve different form finding strategies. Among the things you’ll learn is how to create Catenary curves and skeletons, creating tensile membrane structures and efficient dome structures. As always this course is meant to be very straight forward, teaching everything you need to know to get started so you can implement what you learned right away in your projects.
