Hello WASP 1 Reply

Hello,I just find this grate plug-in "WASP". I started using it but I need some help.1. The geometry is one level, I want to build something similar to this, I want to have more than one level.…Continue

Hi Cesar,

not sure if I understand, but if I do, it is not possible with the current version of Wasp, as each part is aware of the connection it is attached to, but not of the other ones. And to keep track of that, would add a quite significant computational load to the aggregation process.

But, just to make sure I understand, could you maybe post a screenshot of the problem here, or create a topic in the discussion forum above, so we can discuss how such feature could be implemented?

Thanks!

With a small field sometimes geometry faces end up touching without a rule and I was wondering if there's a way of restricting this combinations.

Hi Cesar,

thank you!

I am not sure I understand your question. Could you exaplin me what do you mean by restriction rules?

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for this amazing tool.

I was wonderig if there is a way to make restrictions rules?

Hi Ali,

you can use the TransformPart component to position one part in a specific location, and then provide this transformed part in the PREV input of the Aggregation components. In this way, the aggregation will start from that position.

I am working at finalizing the last touches to the new version of Wasp, and will add example files also for this.

Hi Andrea,How do I control the starting point of growth in aggregation process ?

Comment by Andrea Rossi on December 7, 2017 at 7:10am

Hi Henrik,

the PREV input is there to allow you to add a previous aggregation as a base on top of which to aggregate new modules. However, as these modules are still computed in the aggregation process, using it will not make your code faster.

Currently, the best way to achieve aggregations made of large groups is to split the aggregation in smaller sub-areas with small overlaps, and aggregate them independently, always providing the last parts as starting points for the next aggregation. I can send you a file, if you are interested.


In the new version of Wasp (will release it hopefully this weekend) there is the possibility of setting a threshold on the Field component, which allows, depending on your field, to speed up calculations, of couse sacrificing the precision of the field approximation.
If you want to take a look, you can download the work in progess components on the Github page: https://github.com/ar0551/Wasp/tree/master/userObjects

I am working on a "probabilistic" field aggregation, which should be much faster, but I am not sure of when I will have something usable. If you send me a PM with your email, I can keep you in the loop and let you know as soon as I have something.

Hello Andrea,

Currently im working on a project using muqarnas as element to aggregate. As you can see it needs a very high iteration number. Then I saw this PREV input that i wonder if it would help my work to become more smooth? Can u show me an example where u set up the PREV? Does it save the old parts somehow? What does it do?

Best,

Henrik
