generative modeling for Rhino
for my thesis I am planning a kinetic structure that is able to move following the movement of the sun. The cover is an origami, as you can see in the attached file, and I was inspired by the trials of Daniel Piker. At the small squares I will insert solar panels, and I want to make a space just like the Canopy of the AA's 2007 in London, which defines a semi-open space that is able to provide energy.
To simulate the movement I have two major problems:
1_ the component C# doesn't recognize all the vertices of the mesh that I created. In facts I think there is a mistake, because when the septum Kangaroo toggle to false, an error is about an object instance:Runtime error (or probaby I have done other mistakes);
2_how do I move the structure following the sun? I found an algorithm that allows me to recognize the vector that join the center of the scene with the sun's position at a given site, at a particular time of day, etc ... but how do I "force" the structure in Kangaroo this shift?
you have any ideas? Only you can help me, please!
I hope to be clear, I look your replies.
Thanks in advance, Betta
Ps:this is my first experience using Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Kangaroo ... so be kind and patient with me!
