Rhino in Education

a place to shine a light on the work of students and teachers


Jump in with a couple of students and turn them loose on the links, documents, videos, files, etc.  They will find something that connects them to Grasshopper.

For some of you this is a place to start: 

Grasshopper Home Page

 'Introduction to Grasshopper' videos.

These videos are less than 10 minutes long. Use pause and follow along.

For others get out on the web and look for user friendly videos:

Google:  Grasshopper3d video tutorials

Explore some of these videos to see what you can do with GH.  Work along with a video.  Utilize the 'Pause' when viewing the video.  Again, there might a tutorial 'out there' that will grab a student's attention.  

***** A new video for GH:   (no sound but it looks good)

Short videos for New Grasshopper learners

Jump quickly down to Part 3:  "Grasshopper Basics"

***** A few years old but hands-on practice:  

Digital Toolbox

These are NOT new videos.  The Grasshopper interface has changed over the years.

1 Click the 'Grasshopper' tab on the toolbar.   

2 Click 'Basic' to get started with some very user friendly videos. 

HINT #1 (to easily find components in Grasshopper):  Double-Click on the canvas and Type what you want in the 'search box'.    

Hint #2: Click the Params Tab. Click the 'Geometry' title bar to show all the components in the library.  All tabs work this way.  There are many many tools / components.  Refer to hint #1 to keep it simple.  

Grasshopper is built-in to v6 Rhino:
