012 – Making your Grasshopper models user friendly

Creating a neat user experience

The Grasshopper canvas is far more than just a place to drop and connect your components. Using tools like the pencil, scribble and jump you can create a neat user experience including drawings, text formatting, and a smooth automated movement between sections of your Grasshopper model.

Prerequisite: Open one of your existing models that you can experiment with.


Step 1: Draw your desired shape that corresponds with the model. In this example we are using a house.

Step 2: Select the pencil drawing, right click and choose 'load from rhino'. Then select the houses in Rhino and hit enter.

Step 3: You can also add formatted text using Scribble or panels.

Bonus tip: Transition smoothly between your models using the 'jump' components.

Now your model is more user friendly!
