Hello Nathan,

I've been working with Lunchbox with the latest release of the Rhino 5 beta (64-bit) in Grasshopper 0.9.006 and have run across a rather confusing problem.

When I bake a set of curves to a set of layers, I get duplicate geometry.

Running undo within Rhino ('Undo Grasshopper Solution') removes the duplicate geometry. Also, the baked geometry is always precisely twice the number of input objects. These two factors taken together, it would seem like it is executing the bake twice. Still, I can't figure out why this would be the case. Any thoughts? (Definition and template file attached)

This definition with the current release of LunchBox was working perfectly in Grasshopper 0.8.0066. It's only since upgrading to 0.9.0006 that I've found this issue. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

Template: RoofGridTemplate.3dm

thank Nathan .. it's really simple that I could not think of .. great.

Try setting the division parameter to an even number.

hi Nathan, thank you for amazing tools.i love it.

I use  lunchbox that had a small error..(Swiss Re)

similar to other components:

other view..it's ok.

I hope for your help to better..thanks...

Hello all,

I'm having issues with trying to design a diagrid for this model surface. I have attached a .pdf and .jpg image of the draped surface.

1. I used a "draped surface" to design the surface for the diagrid definition and then trimmed it to my desired specifications. However, the definitions I've found don't confine themselves to the parameters of the surface, they continue to the extents of original untrimmed surface. Is there a definition that will confine themselves and "fit" to the parameters of this newly edited surface?

 

2. I am trying to get a diagrid that will bake only the structural grid of the diagrid and then the glass component separately. I will be rendering this later and I need both components to be distinct of one another.

Please help, I am running out of time, I have been freaking out trying to figure this out and I have found nothing that helps my project. I've searched and found different definitions, tampered with them to fit my project and yet to no avail.

I am still learning this plug-in and I enjoy it's functions, PLEASE HELP!!!

Thanks,

Sim

Is there any chance to teah http read cyrillic letters or decode the result into cyrillic afterwards? (inside or outside grasshopper?)

Hi Nathan,

Thank you for your message and for your hard work on these components. We will wait as long as it is necessary for your next awesome update. I hope your move goes well :)

Bests,

Ali

Ali,

I'll try to get a fix out soon.  I'm in the middle of a move right now so I won't have much time to push out another update for a few weeks.  

In the meantime, here is  VB script implementation of the same component which will work with points.

Hi Nathan,

Following up on the comments below, is there a temporary solution to the problem of baking points? I'm also having problems baking circles. But I think the solution would probably be to convert them to curves and then bake them.

Thanks for a great set of components!

Bests,

Ali

Hey David,

Thanks!  Yes I am aware that the casting problem there with GeometryBase.  Oddly enough, the exact same source code accepts points and other objects when placed in a scripting component.  For whatever reason, it gets fussy when made as a plug-in.  Not sure what the deal is.

I have a couple of workarounds in mind based on some lessons learned in the newer Slingshot! components.  I had to do some casting gymnastics for the serialization components to get them to handle certain geometries.  I'll try and circle back and implement them here soon.

Cheers,

-Nate
