algorithmic modeling for Rhino
This is not a simple script, not intend for general purpose.
The script still relies on solid Boolean operations, thus limited to what Rhino 'can Boolean'.
I'll add more description about the script later when I have more time.
I attached a form testing file, which you can play with some forms that I've sketched.
This is my first post, suggestions and comments appreciated.
Inspired by David Fano's Parametric Truss script.
waffle_20101228.ghx, 1.6 MB is the latest script (hope it works on GH0.8)
I have updated the script with GH0.9.0014, added some new stuff.
Again, the logic and thinking of this script is noted to be slow. It is designed to work with complex shapes like center hollow etc. If you are working with many smaller items, you are advised to seek an simpler alternative for a waffle generating script.
The script is 2.5 years old. I'm not very excited about maintaining this script or add more feature. I think some people are still using it though, so I thought updating it to GH0.9 will allow it to be useable for a few more years.
2013-04-19 This version is updated to GH 0.9.0014.
Added custom made single line text generation
Added push button to bake preview and curves
Added mesh preview
Hi sorry to keep bugging you about this script but i'm incredibly new to grasshopper and for me this plugin is absolutely perfect for a project i'm working on. The problem that i'm having is baking the final 3D Object. I've been able to bake the 2D with text for but I can't bake the 3D and use it as a reference. Also might point out that non of the output options on the far right work you have to trace them back and use those buttons instead to bake them.
Thanks for your continued support on this.
If you want help, you better upload your Rhino file / GH File, state your software versions. Might be a version problem. This script is very old view from the modern 0.9 GH version.
Absolutely I shall upload it in less than an hour, just need to get to my laptop will reply after this one.
Rhino Version 5.5.30717, Grasshopper Build 0.9.0056
Links to Gh and rhino file are attached below.
One of the things I was wondering would was how this type of code could be used to create a pavilion like this (http://www.grasshopper3d.com/video/apx-workshop-2012-pavilion-param...) and similarly lay them flat on a plane? (sorry realise that this might be asking a bit too much and be completely unrelated to your code).
This script is more then 3 years old and I stopped maintaining them. The main reason why I discontinued it is because the script was originally tackling problems around many primitive functions that GH has in its early versions. Now in modern GH, this types of waffle scripts can be easily programmed, clean and easy to use. There is not much reason why I should continue maintaining it.
I'm not sure if the script still work in the current GH version. But if it does, adjusting the spacing is easy as to changing the planes. Rib effect is not what the script trying to do, and modifying from this script is not the easiest thing that you should try.
If you are looking for a rib type of script, there are examples out there, which uses either a offset of section curve or similar logic.
I'm afraid I will not have the time at the moment to contribute writing this specific code for you.
No worries thanks Victor. I will look into other definitions. By your script works fine with the current version of grasshopper.
