HI There,

Mario Guttman and Tim Meador have developed a new geometry importer from Grasshopper to Revit. I have started using it on a project and wanted to share the initial results with you. You can download all of the Hummingbird items here


this project is in it’s initial design phase and we are trying out a variety of skin systems/types on a fairly conservative massing. The developer wants to get an innovative design while not giving up sq’, how unusual right. So my initial thought was that grasshopper could really help that iterative process, wouldn’t it be great if we could speed up the Revit process as well.


well all Tim and I had to do was get Mario excited about this and away we go!  As always just email me and I will share the definitions etc. with you. Good luck!



This first image is from a series of louvers that respond to points on a specific surface. There was a thought that the points could correspond to program and desires for more or less transparency in any given space. Directly linking the facade/exterior to the interior.  


The other studies had to do with Voronio patterns on an outboard screen clipped to the facade. The opening size and orientation is a response to the interior elements. 







As always, email me if you would like to look at the grasshopper file. 


This blog is about sharing grasshopper across the firm. The projects are themselves interesting (hopefully) but not the main point of the blog. It is our hope that this will become a place of inspiration and active conversation about all things Grasshopper, and by extension Rhino. This is the maiden voyage so any input would be great.

This is a very simple grasshopper definition, I will send if you email me, with the idea that any sizing information we received from Arup could be quickly update into our model.

I hope you like it.
