Jig: A tool used to control the location and/or motion of other tools.
I will be presenting at next week’s Seattle Ecotect Users Group meeting. I’ve been asked to speak on the topic of “scripting.” Since I don’t do a lot of scripting in LUA – the script language of Ecotect – I WILL NOT be addressing how to use LUA. (For those who want an introduction to LUA, look elsewhere). Instead, I will talk about how and why to use scripting to drive Ecotect as an analysis engine. I’ll explain how LMNts has been employing Grasshopper as a sort of “script jig” to guide other tools, including Ecotect. Specifically, I’ll present a number of case studies on how design iterations are pushed into analysis packages and how analysis data are brought back into our design environments. I’ll demonstrate how/why/when these data are used to inform decisions, especially when multiple – and sometimes competing – parameters are in play.
