I'm kind of in a pickle here. I don't know grasshopper that well, and I certainly don't know kangaroo, but I'm trying to work off Daniel Piker's definition: http://vimeo.com/27484394
Attached is my starting rhino file and the gh definition that Daniel is using (I've added few other things...) It seems like it should work, but I think the problem is with the way my meshes are joined - the planar octagon with the cylindrical volumes. Perhaps it has something to do with the way grasshopper reads the 'naked' edges of the welded mesh... I'm not quite sure.
Or maybe I'm approaching this from a completely wrong angle. Essentially, what I'm trying to do is roughly similar to shigeru ban's structures (see attached image). I need to be able to control the position and size of the circular openings, but the octagonal perimeter is always fixed.
If anyone has any suggestions about how to fix and evolve the definition I started with, or a completely different approach, I would very much appreciate it!!!!
Thanks a lot!
