generative modeling for Rhino
i need your help! is there another way not using "rhinonest" to nest/pack groups of curves.
i tried to use antonio turiello's nesting component, ading a roator and a jitter, works quite well, but i kant nest goups of curves (outline+tag)
do you have a definition or a hint how to do this?
PS: i added my definiton, feel free to test!
try this! ;)
thank you for your answer!
verry interessting! what are the Rnd components doing? are the generated numbers just random? if yes,thats why i used galapagos to find the the best angle for rotation and the best order (jitter).
what i tried to say was, how tho nest geometries consisting of for exmaple two lines (ill send you an example) you have the outline and a tag of this part. is there a way to put them together and nest them?
thank you for your help!
There is no unique way to nesting...
In that definition Rnd generates pseudo random numbers (updatable with Timer and Recompute)
for the "seed of shuffling engine" and the "rotation angles in radians".
However all your requests will be resolved in a definition i already thought to share.
You just have to wait a little! :)
Thats great! when will you share your definition? is there a already a version to test? you can send it to me by email if its not ready for the public. firstname.lastname@example.org
I use Packrat if my pieces are more or less rectangular. In your case, that might not work out so well.
thats just an example... maybe thats a way using packrat...
but how to pack a group of lines? do you have a definiton?
I make my closed curves into thin solids (planarsrf + extrude) then I try to pack them in a thin box that is less than 2 times thicker than the amount I extruded my closed curves.
NESTING example is ready!
Download GENERATION with a new definition included.
For those who are working with Rhino 5 and Grasshopper 0.9 i reset the missing values in the definition (made for GH 0.8).
Have fun :)
I know its not the prettiest way but hopefully sustained
