WeaverBird's Stellate mesh division changes the mesh orderings with the change of the curvture

Hi All,I have modeled a dome-shaped surface in GH and am using weaverbird to triangulate it. There is a parameter in GH which moves the corner points up/down thus changes the curvature. I need the triangulation numbers to be consistent for my future processes. However, weaverbird changes the numbering order of the mesh with the change of the curvature.  Is there a way that I can fix the order by telling weaverbird for example to stick to starting from the upper left corner and move vertically…Continue

Mesh from line? 2 Replies

Hi all,I have a diagrid structure that I made through lines in Gh, and now I need to create a mesh from these lines.

Mesh from Lines 4 Replies

Hi Giulio,I am working on a new version of eve|voronax ( ) and among other things, it will have cell recognition....cells filled with meshes or surfaces. I have been experimenting with different algorithms and the best one I have involves an underlying surface. This is OK 99% of the time but I am searching for ways to improve it. That is why I was wondering what kind of algorithm did you use…Continue

Inner subdivision polygone

Hi everyone,My question is quite simple. Would it be possible to use the Catmull Clark subdivision to an Inner polygone only i.e - having an subdivided hole within a rigid rectangle. Using Loop - Split Inner Polygone doesn't actually subdivide as much as it would with Catmull Clark.Best regards,David Continue

I would like them to look like a hill rather than pointy mountains if that makes sense.I cannot quite so easily figure out how to do so/what would be the most efficient way of getting it so anyone's help will be greatly appreciated!I've attached the screenshot as well as the rhino file of the surfaces I want to smooth. Thank you very…Continue

Catmull-Clark Error, "Array is empty" 1 Reply

Hi everyone,I am fairly inexperienced with grasshopper and its various plugins so I am having a tough time trying to work this issue out on my own. I have been following an online tutorial: on how to make a diamond grid building skin. However, when I reach this last step, I receive an error when plugging my mesh into a catmull-clark subdivision saying "Array is empty". I am thinking it may have…Continue
