STF#8 - 2023: Workshops
WU10Grasshopper v2 for users of Grasshopper v1 – Delivered by David Rutten
This workshop will explore how Grasshopper 2 leverages first-class data types, such as functions and fields, which are frequently used in components for localised number and vector inputs. Participants will learn how to create and modify these types.
In addition, the workshop will delve into metadata, examining its properties and exploring different techniques for creating, assigning, and displaying it.
Finally, the workshop will cover strategies for establishing data dependencies between unconnected components within a single file and between components located in separate files.
You will need to bring your own laptop.
