(*) ¿Is it required any previous knowledge in Python?

No knowledge in Python or programming language is necessary. We do recommend some basic knowledge in Rhino and Grasshopper.


Python is a modern programming language. Python is sometimes called a scripting language or a glue language. This means python is used often to run a series of commands as a script or used to create links between two other technologies as a glue. It is easier to learn and use than other non-scripting style, compiled languages like C#, VB, or C/C++. Yet it is quite powerful.

You may need Python if you want to automate repetitive task in Rhino much faster, perform tasks that you do not have access to in the standard Rhino or Grasshopper tools, generate geometry using algorithms, etc.*
