3D Model on Rhinoceros and Grasshopper

Creating a 3D Model on Rhinoceros and Grasshopper Using Emotive

Published by - Admin On November 13, 2019

Emotive technology CAD creates several highly valued technologies and gadgets that open up some revolutionary doors to structural engineers and their complex 3D modeling projects. The way that architecture is arranged can have great impacts and effects on people in the buildings in emotional, psychological, and behavioral ways, such as based on the amount of natural light received, the characteristics of sound and moving air, and more. 

By allowing structural engineers to tap into these aspects of the built environment, software that is enabled with Emotive, such as Rhinoceros software and the Grasshopper 3D software plugin plug-in to Rhinoceros, design engineers can optimize their designs for anyone who may end up inside the architectural space.

What Emotive Technology CAD Has for the Structural Engineers

Previous 3D modeling software available to structural engineers was constrained to only modeling the building itself and the materials and equipment on the inside. Emotive, however, allows skilled structural design engineers to take into account the people on the inside. The key opportunities that Emotive and its associated innovations can bring to structural design and drafting include the following:

  • Cognitive and Emotional Processes The big takeaway is that Emotive technology CAD brings the human cognitive and emotional processes into structure design, something never before possible with other software tools and design strategies. Emotive opens up the ability for architects and engineers to tap into and optimize the cognitive and emotional processes of those who inhabit the building, whether residents, office workers, or commercial customers.
  • Experiment in a New Way The abilities of CAD programs were immensely exciting when they were first made available, but in recent years the actual capability improvements have stagnated, as there are only so many ways to create a 3D model of the same building. But by adding emotional and cognitive processes to the CAD systems, new ideas can experiment with hand revolutionary design concepts that can be explored.
  •  Protect the Health of Building Occupants The result of a building designed using Emotive technology is going to be a space filled with people who are happier and healthier, which is not something considered by other 3D modeling tools. A successful business, a happy family, or a productive store must all take into account these basic emotional aspects like light, sound, temperature, and more, and Emotive finally lets those be incorporated seamlessly into the computer design process.
  • Make Buildings More Attractive to Tenants: The people who fill up the building won’t be the only ones to benefit, as the owners of the buildings looking to rent out the space will be able to point to the Emotive-filled design processes as reasons the building is particularly desirable and keeping tenants will instantly become easier.

The range of industries that can benefit from this type of Emotive modeling is varied and brings with it many reasons to be excited.

Whereas traditional 3D modeling software was strictly kept to typical engineering, architecture, and construction projects, the capabilities of Emotive modeling via Rhinoceros and Grasshopper include the following:

  • Artificial Intelligence This branch of computer science deals with computer programs that learn on their own and adapt to reality as a real intelligent body would. By tying Emotive capabilities with the AI industry, buildings can be made smart in a brand new way that optimizes the experience of the tenant, such as by intelligently identifying where light is needed, adjusting temperatures and air flows, and more.
  • Internet of Things The Internet of Things (IoT) is the field that deals with interconnected devices and appliances that use their sensors to collect data, interact with their environment, and react appropriately. By combining Emotive technologies with traditional architecture, a smart building will be able to react to the environment: adjust light levels based on the weather, change the HVAC system based on several people inside, and much more.
  • Blockchain The technology behind blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions, and by combining emotive technologies with blockchain, there are capabilities to adjust economic incentives according to cognitive and neurological inputs from people.
  • Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality Technology is increasingly allowing for immersive experiences like virtual, augmented, and mixed reality that combine elements of the real world with digital displays for many different purposes. Any design that incorporates these elements must be combined with emotive design to ensure the end-user and result matches what is desired.
  • Architectural, Structural, and Construction Industries Mostly, structural modeling that incorporates Emotive design will upend our understanding of building construction. In conjunction with Rhino 3D CAD and Grasshopper 3D software, Emotive software is making this a reality.

How Emotive Modeler CAD Tool Can Be a Flawless Form-Finding Method

The combination of Grasshopper and Rhinoceros with the power of Emotive Technology enables new and exciting ways to control the 3D design and modeling processes, combining the power of mathematical models, computer algorithms, and flexible design to optimize the form-finding method. These results can be accomplished in a few ways:

  • 3D Modeling Using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper As mentioned, the Emotive Modeler CAD tool is further empowered by the Rhino 3D CAD and Grasshopper solutions, and 3D modeling can important intelligent design, human-centric models, and more in a way that no previous 3D modeling software enabled.
  • Technology We are undoubtedly living in an increasingly digital world where technology is everywhere you look. Critically, the availability of such technology has transformed the world our children grow up in and where adults currently live. Emotive Technology allows us to optimize the emotional and cognitive effects of this technological world, turning it into a positive instead of a source of stress and poor mental health.
  • Learning Curve The cost to study and explore these Emotive technologies, and the effects they can have when properly (or improperly) applied started high. But as Grasshopper and Rhinoceros have become more available it’s brought down the learning curve and made this type of Emotive Technology more accessible to any structural engineer who wants them.
  • Cost of Implementation As that learning curve becomes easier to climb, similarly, the cost of implementation has been able to drop precipitously. Emotive technology and associated 3D modeling with Rhino 3D CAD and Grasshopper no longer need to be a niche application, but rather is available to all types of projects.


Technology is increasing at a more rapid pace, and new and exciting capabilities are being opened up every day. While technical knowledge used to get you far enough in the 3D modeling and CAD worlds, these Emotive capabilities have opened up a whole new avenue of areas to learn related to cognitive performance, the emotional impact of design, and more. 

Emotive, further empowered by Rhinoceros and Grasshopper, is changing what we used to know about 3D models and making smarter more, beneficial designs.
