McNeel Europe welcomes Benjamin Felbrich, author of FlexHopper and research associate at ICD Stuttgart, to tutor a three-day workshop at our Barcelona offices. The training will offer the opportunity to get trained in FlexHopper and to understand how it compares to Kangaroo Physics.
FlexHopper brings particle-based physics simulation in Rhino and Grasshopper to the next level by making use of massively parallel GPU computation. Based on the patented unified particle engine NVIDIA Flex, it offers the simulation rigid/deformable bodies, particles, fluids, phase transitions, massive spring systems, cloth, inflatables and gases and allows for interaction between those material systems.
FlexHopper is free and open source.View Course Syllabus...
