generative modeling for Rhino
Probably along these lines: http://www.grasshopper3d.com/video/rheotomic-surface-flowline-relat...
you can intersect a shape with a collection of planes, then extrude the intersection contours by the distances between planes, that should give you a similar result (see attached).
I have a question, I have a topographic map with contour curves, created with the ELK plugin for GH but they are not closed. Is there a way to close them and use your definition which you posted above? You know like closed curves to the outer boundaries. Doing a layered topographic map. I attached an example terrain.
puh I thought I can adjust an old file. But you have much more different cases. The file looks complicated now.
But maybe it is helping you. use mine 3dm
Ah nice, thanks a lot, I will check it in the evening!
Have a nice day!
These almost look like 3D printer stripes (printing process layers).
Guys~Many thanks for your magical responses~!!
