algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I have a quite similar problem...
I have this triangulated mesh (that is supposed to resemble a building) and want the edge lengths to be about the same.
So I got the GeometryGym toolbar (thanx again for the license, Jon!)
Using the command sdrMeshResize with an target edge lenght of 1.8 meters/units i get this unsatisfying result:
I am quite new to rhino. I created the mesh from a lofted surface, hence the hole in the top. Should I try another way of modeling the building, or am I using wrong params? The building is supposed to look kinda like THIS...
btw: I seem to have problems with the sdrMeshRepelVerts command. I get this error message:
That's a very unsatisfying result. Any chance you can email me the associated files so I can take a look and try to improve?
I couldn't get the mesh repel verts command to give that error on my test cases, so it would be great if I can see your model.
I have other routines not in SDR, developed for canopy roofs or similar I've helped on, to create a panelling of equilateral triangles (within tolerance). If I get the chance I'll try to apply it to your form.
I helped myself out with an approximation now. I created a dome with triangle surfaces, using a gh-script I downloaded from somewhere around here (geodesic.ghx). Caged the hole thing with a circle of the same size and deformed it...Not the real thing, but I'm in a bit of a hurry, the final presentation is coming up in two weeks...
I sense I have to do something with "Delaunay Mesh" and "Proximity 3D" from the Triangulation Toolbar. Tried, but no success so far...
Have you tried using surface distribution in Kangaroo ?
Post the file and I'll have a look too.
See these discussions for some more info:
There's also some more powerful new mesh optimization tools on the way :)
Hi Pietro, I am having very close issue as you had. the image you showed is what I am trying to get in rhino model. did you find any solution can you help me please?
