Bowerbird contains some tools for modeling.
Creates a waffle structure from a volume.
The component can handle multiple holes and is very fast!
Waffle open surfaces quickly e.g. by using the offset or extrude component (see examples).
Creates a slice model from a volume.
You can specify a border to create a hollow. The border defines the minimum overlapping of the parts (e.g. for glue)
Note: BBWaffle and BBSlices support only meshes. I droped Brep support because of the very low performance and stability. Use Grasshoppers mesh tools to generate meshes from Breps (see examples).
Represents text with a single line font for labeling and engraving.
It uses a self made font engine which works very fast and accurate. All characters consist of lines and arcs. No Nurbs, no duplicate curves! Perfect for fabrication!
You can define location, orientation and size of the text. Choose between normal and bold font.
The component supports the following characters:
Give Python scripts quick access to Bowerbird functions (requires Grasshoppers Python plugin).
Drag the gha file on to your grasshopper window. You will find the new BBText component in the extras tab.
The plugin was build for Rhino 5 and Grasshopper 0.9
