### Reciprocal Self supporting frame (shift frame)

HI! I want to connect my anchor points like in a reciprocal frame. But grasshopper will only conect the endpoints of lines. I can't connect them from a point on a line. My Problem is the following. I need to connect point 1 to point 2. Then on the line between 1 and 2 is another point 6 beeing the endpoint of the line from 5 to 6. same for 3 and 4 having the point 2 on the line. But the connecting line should always stay straight. so it should not bend on the point inbetween. here a picture for…See More

"After reading the article of ROKKO I don't think its too easy to code something like that. But this would be exactly what i need:A ghx file which can bring this grid onto any kind of surface..."

"Thanks a lot for the infomaterial. I hope I'll be able to find a solution. In my case it will need to be a self-supporting framework without any kind of connectors to hold te ends together. so each peace resting on another will keep the next in…"

"HI! I'm also looking for a solution to this problem. But with a hexagonal grid and the reciprocal system should contain triangles. SOmewhat like this but applicable to any surface."

"HI! First of all great work! Do you think it's possible to make the grid look like a reciprocal frame. greets"

your pattern is somehow interrupted and to me it looks like a different setup would be needed.

please check the definitions i uploaded in my first comment on the album, maybe that helps!
