Crash course in GRA?

Not applicable
Hi All,

I am wondering if anyone is proficient in GRasshopper Rhino Archicad that would have time to help me learn a crash course in the operating the connection and grasshopper rhino. I am willing to pay for your time. I want to do something like they did in Vegas, where they had the sunscreen shaded in colors to show heat gain, and by using sliders, they were able to decide best design for the shade to minimize heat gain.

Thank you,

From someone who have self tough himself I can advise you what are the first step you should take, and how to save some money.

First Step:
Learn the tool "Grasshopper", if you don't know the basics you will not manage to make any advance in any direction.

For this step I advise you to follow the steps I have posted to someone in your same situation in reddit.

Second step:
Just watch ArchiCAD youtube videos for Grasshopper, I know they are few, but for starts, there is nothing more in it, the rest is based on you knowledge of Grasshopper usage and your already known ways using ArchiCAD adapted to Grasshopper's graphical user interface.
A good friend of mine have once told me that I´m so brute that I´m capable of creating a GDL script capable of creating GDLs.
