algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Weaverbird brings mesh editing, subdivision and mesh transformations to Rhino and Grasshopper users.

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

Hi all, I've created the initial with this function but there's one or two places I'd like to have more control on, in terms of thickness and angles.But I came to realised that tweaking these whilst keeping the original matrix wasn't as simple as I thought,I was wondering:A. if there's a way to 'loop subdivision' only the surface, keeping the top and bottom angle at right angle (see photo attached - A)B. thickening the branch between the two voids (left) without thickening/minimizing the…Continue

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. I downloaded the plug-in Weavebird and I used the component Mesh from lines, but does not work as I would like. As you can see in the image attached, the mesh is not created for intermediate triangles. Can you tell me what went wrong?You can see attached the file Gh too.Thanks in advanceContinue

Hi Giulio,I am working on a new version of eve|voronax ( http://www.food4rhino.com/project/evevoronax ) 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

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

Hi,I'm very new to weaverbird and I have been trying to use the smoothing function to remove sharp edges of my polysurfaces (under the label augean stables). 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
