We’ve developed a graphic programming tool for Revit, and decided it was time to update our Grasshopper Graphic Programming tool to work with similar spreadsheet formatting. The biggest change that we made is to be more forgiving in how the spreadsheet is formatted. The new version requires only a column named Room Name to be present in the spreadsheet and will then start producing masses once data is entered in that column.
One of the amazing things about working with Grasshopper is the ability to generate lots of information, a key part of Building Information Modeling. However, it can sometimes be difficult […]
Projects will often start off with a period of program analysis, part of which requires each of the program spaces to be drawn to get a graphic sense of the project’s pieces. This information tends to be provided in the form of a spreadsheet which categorizes the spaces in addition to specifying the room’s name, quantity, areas, and other relevant information. With a few modifications, this spreadsheet can be used to generate all of the space geometry through the use of a Grasshopper definition.
