generative modeling for Rhino
helo..i am a newbie for GH.. i wanto to make a model like this example picture in GH and fabricating it with lasercut..
i've tried for making a model..but i have some trouble to make the flat surface hexagonal tiling on the surface...
my definition just succeed to make hexagon tiling on surface as polylines and not all of the hex tile can coverted into surfaces by planar surface..
if any of you have any solution..it's very precious for me..
hopely this GH definiton can be helpful to understand my problem..i use rhino 4 sr9 with grasshopper 0.8.0066
Maybe you will need to look at this http://www.livearchitecture.net/archives/3317. hope that helps.
This probably happens because your polylines doesn't lay on a plane. Try to pick every hexagon's boundary and project them to a virtual plane tangent to the surface in a point (for example the center of each exagon). Then use those projected polylines as boundaries fo your hexagons. that should be a fair approximation.
p.s. grat job, I can't forget that "sculpture" in the BSU Architecture building's entrance
