generative modeling for Rhino
if the curve is arc-shaped just plugging it into an Arc parameter will convert it. If not, then there's no component that fits arcs to freeform curves.
I have always wanted a method to fit arcs to freeform curves. It would be great if one could control the 'resolution', i.e. number of arcs used to divide, while seeing the resulting maximum deviation and at the same time also set the continuity (G0, G1, G2) as a parameter.
I know that this can only be solved through an iterative process. I have delibrated stepping into the world of Galapagos with this problem. Do you think it would be a good problem to explore using Galapagos? I have never used it before but would love to use this as an excuse.
There was a discussion on this a while back...
Funny, it was exactly one year ago!
I am not good at coding which is why I havent attempted this myself. But I have always wondered if this was a good problem for Galapagos.
The Rhino _Convert command will already do this, I suppose it would be easiest to use that algorithm somehow, but I don't know whether its publicly available.
Okay, I guess for now I can just use the Function in Rhino until there is a solution for this in Grasshopper. Thanks for the input guys.
