generative modeling for Rhino
I understand what you mean here, but when I try it myself, it's not working. The script is good, but when i use the rhino sample, it says the surface was trimmed, and I have to rebuild the surface again. However, no matter how i do, the red surfaces are not gonna do anything.that is what it happens to me, did I miss sth.? What I wanna do is to connect the 3 red colour surface instead of the big one.
Can u help me with this?
I've a minimal surface solver in my structural tools plug-in. Trouble is it has a very primitive user interface and strict requirements for understanding how to use it, and I don't have time to develop it at this moment.
However, without making any promises about how good a result I might be able to achieve, I'd happily try and apply it to your form if you prepared a rhino model of it. The most important details needed from the model are the constrained edges (ie the circles that are fixed). If you could either create a basic cylinder from top to bottom (or do a basic loft from those circles) and then boolean union to some lateral cylinders (or loft surfaces) so that you have the basic arrangement of form, I'll try to see if the solver can relax it into the minimal surface. Not that it will produce a "mesh" or polysurface form of the minimal surface, one of the reasons I hadn't pursued this with priority is that I have figured how to get a NURBS result. Possibly T-splines plug-in or something might be able to help out with this part.
