David Rutten replied to Florian Bendl's discussion Decompose and delete brep faces in Python
"Keepfaces must be a list of surfaces instead of brepfaces. Surfaces in RhinoCommon do not support trims. I think you have to convert your brepfaces into actual breps before adding them to the list."
David Rutten replied to Luciano's discussion Simple way to visualize the grasshopper components and scheme definitions in "basic style" (?)
"You can query the position and size of all components, figure out which wires exist and where the grips are. You'll have to write it from scratch, and you may have to write a lot of special cases for sliders, dials, colour swatches etc. etc."
David Rutten replied to Tom Jelley's discussion Creating uneven tree branches from list
"I renamed it P because it deals with points. If you create a new Expression the default name is x, but I find that confusing in this case because x.z isn't as clear as P.z"

Evolutionary Principles applied to Problem Solving

This blog post is a rough approximation of the lecture I gave at the AAG10 conference in Vienna on September 21st 2010. Naturally it will be quite a different experience as the medium is quite different, but it my hope the basic premise of the lecture remains intact. This post deals with Evolutionary Solvers in general, but I use Rhino, Grasshopper and Galapagos to demonstrate the topics.
