generative modeling for Rhino
Hi guys, I'd like to create a small gap on my distorted octagon.. What I did was to find the mid point of one of the sides, then create circle CNR, and trim with region after that. However, I'm having a problem aligning the circle to the direction of the curve. It won't trim if the circle is not aligned with it. I've tried to input the normal vector with the corresponding curve, but it goes perpendicular to what I want. Is there maybe an expression editor that I could input to undo the perpendicular alignment? Thank you!
I've attached my files..
I don't have time to look at your definition right now but you can probably extrude the circle a little bit (both ways) and get the intersection points.
Use the Extend component, but with L0 and L1 being < 0.
This will create a gap at the start/end point of your curve.
To change this point, type :
A = x
in a vb script, the y is the parameter on curve x which will be the new start/end point.
just use sphere instead of circle..
..here is the file..
You could also get a subdomain of your curve with the SubCurve component, but it would also involve changing the start/end point.
The sphere cutting method from Dimitri is simpler.
Hello everybody, sorry for bringing up this question again. Once I changed my surface in rhino, both circle and sphere do not intersect my curves to create a gap at every tube. I have also tried to divide the line to get two points in the middle for intersection, but not sure what's the next step.. Could anybody PLEASE suggest something asap? Thank you much..
