On Wednesday 6th March 2024 Simply Rhino held the Grasshopper UK User Group Meeting at The Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. This free event was kindly hosted by the AA [EMTECH} team and delivered to a busy room at their London base.

Grasshopper Meeting Interactive Report

Grasshopper Meetings – Background

Grasshopper (GH) for Rhino3D is a visual programming language and graphical algorithm editor that is seamlessly integrated with Rhino. Grasshopper allows users to create complex parametric designs and algorithms through a visual interface, without the need for traditional programming code.

Grasshopper User Group Meetings are events where users come together to share knowledge, experiences, and insights. During these user meetings, participants typically discuss various aspects of using Grasshopper for design, modelling, and analysis.

The meetings include presentations by experienced users, industry professionals and software developers, showcasing innovative projects, demonstrating advanced techniques, and introducing new features or updates. Participants often have the opportunity to engage in discussions, ask questions, and network with other Grasshopper and Rhino enthusiasts.

These user meetings play a valuable role in building a community around Grasshopper and Rhino3D, fostering collaboration, and providing a platform for users to stay informed about the latest developments in the software. They are an excellent way for users to enhance their skills, stay connected with the community, and gain inspiration for their own design and modelling projects.


The next Grasshopper UK meeting will take place in June 2024, to be among the first to hear about our upcoming events make sure you’re signed-up to our newsletter and to the Simply Rhino social channels including LinkedIn and Instagram.
