algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I am experimenting with the metaball components at the moment.
I am trying to blend two shapes which were initially created using the metaball component into "one floor plate".
Wherever two circles intersect (overlapping floorplates) one shape should be created.
I am kind of stuck and would appreciate if someone could have a look at my definition and push me into the right direction.
Many thanks in advance!!!!!
If you want a single outline, you'll have to generate all the floor plates using a single MetaBall component.
There's two basic approaches; building-as-a-whole or one-floor-at-a-time. I attached files for each.
The building as a whole is closest to your current approach, all the points are taken into account for every floor, meaning there's quite a lot of bulging going on. The other approach only generates exactly the points that intersect with each floor.
thank you so much for your reply and support.
I will study your solution tomorrow.
I checked it out quickly and yes its indeed what i was trying to do.
