Creating a neat user experience
The Grasshopper canvas is far more than just a place to drop and connect your components. Using tools like the pencil, scribble and jump you can create a neat user experience including drawings, text formatting, and a smooth automated movement between sections of your Grasshopper model.
Having user-friendly Grasshopper models is important for accessibility, collaboration, maintenance, efficiency, and scalability in your design process. It makes it are more accessible to others, making it easier for team members to collaborate and contribute to the design process.
Prerequisite: Open one of your existing models that you can experiment with.
Step 1: Draw your desired shape that corresponds with the model. In this example we are using a house.
Step 2: Select the pencil drawing, right click and choose 'load from rhino'. Then select the houses in Rhino and hit enter.
Step 3: You can also add formatted text using Scribble or panels.
Bonus tip: Transition smoothly between your models using the 'jump' components.
Now your model is more user friendly!
