### Creating a fan shape in grasshopper9 Replies

I need to create a series of circular fan shapes, and I need to be able to change the number of wings by using a slider component. How should I do that?I was thinking about dividing a circle into n…Continue

### question~How do I generate a fan-shaped form using GH?3 Replies

I need to generate a fan-shape form using grasshopper like that shown on the bottom of my attached picture. I also need to be able to control the number of wings using a slider component. I was…Continue

### How do I control the curvature of an arc13 Replies

Hi, I have 3 points, A, B, and C, I want to make 2 arcs, one from points A and B, and the other one from points B and C. I have the arcs, but is there a way to control the curvature of the 2 arcs so…Continue

I am trying to create 2 trusses from 3 points: A, B, and C.(please refer to the attached pictures)one requirement is that the bottom cord of truss 1 must be the tangent of the truss2, which means…Continue

"Cool and simple solution. Thanks David!!"

"Well, I'm told the assignment deadline has well and truly passed, so I've posted my Grasshopper definition (using Geometry Gym Components) at modelling this truss. You can download the definition from http://geometrygym.blogspot.com if you…"

"here is my file: I just used a circle-> divide -> made a cull pattern-> moved the rest to the middle with a vector."

"Sure thing: If you transform the four equations in 3°, ruling out spare variables, you'll get the formula. 1. There's probably a simpler formula out there... 2. Instead of using trigonometry you could find intersections of parallel…"

"Really? Could you please show me that?"

"Hi Danny, I don't quite understand what you mean by step 3, "create a repeating pattern of scales eg 0.5,1,1,0.5,1,1.....N", can you explain it a little? Thank you so much"

"Can you explain how to make it simpler? Thank you."

"Jacek Jaskólski That's a very neat solution. But can you explaint the part which ensures the parallel lines. I'm a new user to grasshopper, I'm jut a little confused the formula. Thank you very much."

"I also gave it a try, but more simple then the one here above witch is indeed very neat"
Jul 24, 2010
"That's a very neat solution. If I may throw in my two cents: 1/100: there's no need to create a circle - let's just create points form polar coordinates, should be a bit faster, 2/100: if we'd like for the wings to have…"

"One approach might be to use the Scale Component to reduce the radius of certain control points around the circle. 1) Create circle. 2) Divide Circle by N points 3) create a repeating pattern of scales eg 0.5,1,1,0.5,1,1.....N 4) plug points and…"

"Thank you, but this one didn't really work at some point, for a certain number of wings, the voids are not triangular."

"I attached my way of doing it. Hope that helps. You probably need GH0.7.0036 to open the file. "

"Thank you Leon, Jon, and David for you help! Yan"
