generative modeling for Rhino
Hi I have a surface that i would like to add paneling upon, I want to make the sizes of the paneling to vary depending on how much the surface is curving. e.g. if the part of the surface is bending a lot, then paneling along that part of the surface will be bigger than compared to flatter surface panelings.
Is this logic achievable in GH?
Sure is. There are some examples hidden in the tutorials section. You can search this forum for "paneling" and "surface curvature" to find threads that should help you find an answer to your problem.
sorry i could not find any pages thats helpful to my problem... Are you able to point me to the right direction? Thanks
this can be achieved using paneling tools, a plug in for Rhino, not part of grasshopper. You would use this plug in together with the record history using an attractor point, this way when you move your attractor point the patterns on your surface will change
thank you for your reply, i was wondering if this method allows the idea of
have a diagrid on a surface, and by using an attractor causes specific triangles within the diagrid to increase or decrease in size which will in turn affect the neighboring triangle sizes in order for the system to stay attached and un-overlapped.
is there a tutorial on this?
heres one of mine with height and width of cones, change it to control a diagrid. http://formularch.blogspot.com/2012/04/gh-curvature-cones.html
Hi thank you so much! i am having trouble reading one of the components in the definition, its labeled pCon with p input and cv and ce as output. can you please tell me where i can get that component please? its within cone widths group
Hi i found that component but i could not get the same result as you, i dont know why. Please help.
c of pline must be true, u and v of meshuv must both be 1
i edited it here
thank you, but its still not producing a smooth surface for me, its still 4 pieces.. Are you able to email me the definition please? or upload it?
Thanks for your curvature cones tutorial.. its really helpful.
I have a bit of a problem with the loft command.. have re-checked everything and also as you said the polyline input is true and alight sections is off..
would be greatly appreciated.
