algorithmic modeling for Rhino


I was wondering if it might be possible to unroll the mesh as individual faces - together with the additional node geometry encoded into the mesh graph. 

Thus, each of the meshfaces are individual triangles rather than a continuous strip. (my faces are too big my material stock size, however I want to maintain all the data which helps to identify which face and edge connects to the next)

Thanks in advance for the help!

Yes, just set weight for your edges to 1 and use Kruskal with a lower weight limit. The rest of the workflow should be standard.


Thank you for the reply. I tried it and it does segment into individual triangles, however the text data (from the flatfab output) only shows a single number for the triangles centroid, missing the text on the edges to show which triangle it connects to. I'm not sure if I did it wrong? 

I set the weight using the cEdgeWeight Component, with the weight input as a list of 1.0s (repeated to the number of edges), attached it to the Kruskal component and set the weight limit to 0.5.
