There are a lot of tutorials and examples on the forum and you can easily find the latest tools and grasshopper definitions at the top of the list. We’ve put together a list of fundamental topics and core turorials that should be reviewed before going through project-based examples and shared them in a sticky post here so they are always easy to find. Try going through these in order:
Synchronizing Geometry in Grasshopper
This basic example shows how to use the Synchronize Object component.
How to stream grasshopper parameters to your mobile phone or HoloLens.
Using sliders, toggles, buttons and value lists
Examples of different synchronized parameters.
Interactive Synchronized objects
How to make grasshopper geometry interactive
Working with interactive geometry in parametric models
How to combine these other 4 examples to start to build more powerful interactive tools.
Apply basic materials and textures to geometries
How to apply materials in Fologram with the Sync Object component.
Parametrically assigning materials to synchronised geometries
How to override a Sync Object material with custom parametric inputs.
Parametrically assigning transformations to synchronised geometries
Use the Assign Transform component to apply parametric transformations to Sync Objects.
