Data truly is everywhere. gHowl is a set of components written to extend the functionality of Grasshopper when it comes to accessing external data sources and applications. Do you need to create a spreadsheet with dimension data to your fabricator? Would you like to control Grasshopper from your smartphone? Would you like to communicate with Processing through Grasshopper or vice-verse? Do you want to show clients your project in Google Earth? Do you want to connect to a website in order to drive your definition? This course will show you how to open up Grasshopper to the outside world of data!
Additional timezones can be added relative to participant demand. Feel free to contact us at anytime!
