Then, share your Design Journal entry here (replacing these instructions) ... Just delete this instruction text, and start typing your response.

Please include a brief overview of each of the models you’ve created. Each project overview should include:
  • A screenshot of your finished model geometry
    • Walk in the Park - an image of the Dynamo geometry
    • Eliminate the Echo - an image of the Rhino geometry
    • Happy Facade - an image of the Revit wall
  • A few sentences describing your modeling approach
  • The link to your Module 2 folder in our Autodesk Construction Cloud project.

Walk in the Park:



Using Dynamo. First create a grid and an attraction point. Then compute the distance between each grid point and the attraction point. Use a sine wave to map the distance to the cuboids height. Finally using scale to plot the cuboids with the calculated height.

Eliminate the Echo:


Using GrassHopper. First create the grid, the cylinders, and the attractor point. Then compute the distance and maxDistance based on the grid and the attractor point coordinates. Next Compute the cylinder height based on a sine wave whose frequency, amplitude, and base height can be modified. Finally, using scale to plot the cylinders with the calculated height.
