Essential Mathematics

Appena uscito! Veramente un bel lavoro da non perdere. Riporto la enews:
Hi all,
We’re delighted to share the release of the 4th edition of the Essential Mathematics for Computational Design. This publication by McNeel aims to help introduce design professionals to the foundation mathematical concepts that are necessary for effective development of algorithmic and parametric designs using Grasshopper. The text explain, with some depth, concepts such as NURBS geometry, vectors, and transformation, all with visual illustrations and using nearly 100 Grasshopper definitions in Rhino 6.

Essential Mathematics text and samples can be downloaded from here:

We are now recording the material into short videos (2-4 minutes each). The first set of videos are here, and more will follow:

New in the 4th edition:

  • All examples updated to work with Grasshopper in Rhino 6.
  • Added new tutorial in the transformation chapter.
  • Added new sections explanation of knots in NURBS curves with more details.
  • Fixed a few typos and errors.

Feedback is always welcomed.
