SPIRO]rat is a free plugin for Grasshopper3D developed by rat[LAB]EDUCATION in INDIA. It generates Epitrochoids and Hypotrochoids by representing the motion of pen in a classic spirograph. An infinite number of patterns can be generated through this plugin using #Rhino3D and #Grasshopper3D which can be translated into spatial formations. 

rat[LAB]- Research in Architecture and Technology is the 1st Indian Design Studio to release a free-to-use GH Plugin as it’s contribution to the evolving Grasshopper3D community to promote use of technology in design through Computational Methods which the firm practices professionally. 
•••
[SPIRO]rat is a free tool promoting the open-source model of sharing knowledge and skills in the domain of parametric and computational design and creates an educational medium to provide a deeper understanding of mathematics and geometry to designers. 

•••
[THE TOOL IS FREE FOR ALL & PROUDLY MADE IN INDIA]//
*There is a very interesting story to the creation of the tool which will be shared after the launch in press release.

rat[LAB] EDUCATION

 

rat[LAB] EDUCATION is an initiative by rat[LAB] to start a new discourse in architecture & parallel design disciplines with the use of ‘computational design’ & it’s various subsets. Spread across various cities / countries, we are establishing a global dialogue in the domain of computational design by actively organizing and participating in workshops, lectures, presentations & symposiums. While rat[LAB] has taken a top-down approach of exploring computational design through industry, a parallel, bottom-up approach is also in-line to involve students of all levels, from design & related backgrounds.
