Weavebird istallation problem 7 Replies

Hi everybody. I can't resolve my problem. I have Rhino 5 SR 13 bit32, and grasshopper 27-2014. There is a problem whit the istaller package.

( I tried also to copy WeaverBird.rhp onto a running instance of Rhinoceros) but nothing happened. So something goes wrong,…Continue

Child faces grouped by parent - script 1 Reply

I was using Loop subdivision, and needed to access groups of faces in the subdivided mesh according to the face in the original mesh they descended from, so I made a simple little script making use of the way Weaverbird orders its output to extract this. I'm sharing it here in case anyone else finds it useful:It takes as input…Continue

WeaverBird's Stellate mesh division changes the mesh orderings with the change of the curvture 1 Reply

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

Weaverbird : Loop Subdivision question

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
