Onix - opensource robotic controlling plugin for GH

Onix i s an open source robotic controller for universal robots currently in beta. Right now onix can generate URscript programs for universal robots using it's inverse kinematic solver with the ability to stream directly to the multiple robots at once.
The set of tools includes Inverse kinematic solver for the non spherical wrist UR10 robots, end effectors and I/O tools, program generation and program streaming components. All the tools are open source under the creative common licence.Feel free to edit update and improve the codes and clusters and share it with others.
The tool was created during the AAC "adaptive architecture and computation 2012/2013" course Thesis , Bartlett school of architecture, UCL, London.

Obuchi Lab

G30 Obuchi Laboratory at the University of Tokyo is dedicated to interdisciplinary design research connecting architecture, engineering, and computations to explore the ecosystems of contemporary urban environments. It seeks to develop and speculate upon new knowledge for architecture, where the practice of design engages in both social constructs and material performances on a number of scales. Its goal is to redefine the role of architecture as the essential element to theorise, conceptualise, analyse, form, organise, and generate new ideas of and for sustainable future–‐built environments.

MASTA project

MASTA consists of a set of software tools which permit the construction of large scale structures and sculptures with the aid of 3D printers and a subsequent manual assembly process.
These software tools work by fragmenting large 3D models into pieces which have a printable size for usual personal 3D printing devices.

Archsim - Energy Modeling for Grasshopper

The Archsim Energy Modeling component for Grasshopper allows you to quickly create multi-zone energy models and simulations for building design. The tool comes with an abstract thermal model class library and various functions such as “early design auto-zoning”, “automated intersections” etc. that assist you with model creation, simulation and result visualization.  Currently, supported simulation engines are Energy Plus 8.0 and ( TRNSYS 17). However, the open library allows you to extend the output functionality for any other simulation package.
