generative modeling for Rhino
There are several commands in Rhino which have mesh splitting capability, but we’ve had limited success with them in the past. This definition works for splitting a mesh with a set of a curves (lines, polylines, compound curves, etc.) by using a series of steps as described in the list below. The sample file we’ve uploaded is set up to work in the XY plane, but can be quickly edited to work with other planes.

This definition divides a given surface and flattens each quad section to be unrolled to a grid on the xy plane. Once unrolled each face is then flattened and given tabs for reconstruction. Labels are provided.
THIS IS CURRENTLY A BETA VERSION AND IS NOT FULLY DEVELOPED, CHECK BACK FOR A FINAL VERSION.

I figured that before Daniel Piker drops another giant pile of awesome on all of us with dynamic bottom-up mesh topology optimization in kangaroo, I'd share a little bit of some stuff I've been doing on and off for the past several months. I've been thinking about organic mesh modeling based on driver curves for some time...mostly because of a design idea I have kicking around in my head, but also because I've liked many aspects of the meta-ball to mesh stuff that's been going on, have been…Continue
a pretty cool workflow using processing, gHowl, and weaver bird to create a delaunay grid from points. more pics and definition screenshot included in post here.…Continue

Topologies in Grasshopper
Weaverbird is a plug-in for topological transformations in Rhino 4.0 and Grasshopper 0.8. It helps smoothing, modifying and preparing meshes for rapid manufacturing technologies from within Grasshopper.
