Sampling tool for GrasshopperTool, 2014
This tool enables systematic sampling, or the generation of design alternatives, within parametric design spaces developed in Grasshopper, which is an important functionality for exploring a broad range of options in conceptual design. Three sampling schemes are included: random uniform, grid, and Latin hypercube. The samples can be used for design space exploration, multi-objective optimization and/or determining Pareto fronts, approximation algorithm construction, and in general the facilitation of many research endeavors of the Digital Structures group and beyond. The tool will be freely available for general use by the end of August 2015.
