generative modeling for Rhino
Am dealing with some offest problem and instead of trying to flip curve to obtain the right side of offset I was thinking to do both negative and positive offset, and then exclude the bigger in order to keep the one inside. I guess I have to use cull pattern, but I don't know how to link that with the area values of polilynes. Do I need a function?
has anyone faced a similar issue?
thanks Danny. Latest release seem to give the same resulta as previous. About your solution I'd have 2 question:
1- what component is the bothh sides offest?
2- my original polylines come from a planar surfac splitting. How do I extract the contour of each as a closed polilyne?
your solutions are way out of my comprehension, chapeau.
But still it works only for some of the polylines. Wheter for example the previous one, if i introduce a list item component to offset the polyline one at time is working. could it be still buggy the offset component?
Hi Danny, Hi Stefano,
at the 'OffsetWorkAround' I substituted the PolygonCenterComponent with CurvePoint. Set it to 1/2 and it works. All your suggestions work fine.
I've got another one for the offset. Maybe it helps. See jpg.
One thing bugs me though at all solutions: If you have multiple intersecting curves formulating a small surface. The offset becomes larger than the surface edge. At a certain point the offset shows an error till you hit the self intersecting point. Than the offset starts over the surface edge.
How can I solve this problem? No more offset calculation after hitting the self intersecting point!? This is important for my next steps.
Can you give me an example file to work with?
