generative modeling for Rhino
I am attempting to recreate Buckminster Fuller's "Fly's Eye Dome", does anyone have a relatively simple definition for the peculiar shape??
Thank you :)
Interesting dome, I hadn't seen this variation before.
You can get pretty close to it with StructDrawRhino/Grasshopper, although the "stressed" surface has more of a ridge than I'd like. Hope it helps regardless, installation instructions for StructDrawRhino outlined here:
nice, whats the c# component doing?
Splitting the dome faces with the circles. I never found a satisfactory means to do this without reverting to a script or solids, maybe I'm missing something?
