hey man ! great work. i´ve tryin to do this with a honeycomb on a srf and then i use the daniel piker def to planarize  this polygons but i get an error in the boundary surface (planar surface in previous versions) can u upload the def? it would be awesome  because im kind of stock in this´:/

Hi guys, sorry for my late reply. As soon as possible I'll publish the definition, I'm currently testing it on mixed GC surfaces and it is very promising :))

Andrea is right, it is not a TPI process but is a "custom" algorithm which uses the "planar" component by Daniel.

best,

Arturo

it's not a TPI ... (I suppose) it is a hexagons planarization in kangaroo based on a two steps process:
- a first honeycomb tessellation
- a subsequent planarization of the honeycomb edges made using the kangaroo plug-in and a grasshopper definition by Daniel Piker you can find here: http://www.grasshopper3d.com/forum/topics/planar-hexagons-kangaroo

Hello Luis. I think it's done with tangent plane intersections. You can find it explained here and here (along with some other stuff).

Arie-Willem de Jongh posted a similar definition based on quads. And I modified his to one based on triangles.

The problem is if you want the definition to solve areas of negative, zero and mixed gaussian curvature you'll most likely need an algorithmic approach.

Best

nice work !

Could you explain the logic behind the definition? I would appreciate it. Thank you!

Cool! Does it work on areas of negative or zero gaussian curvature?

Would you be kind to uppload your GH file to the forum? Thank you so much!
