Grasshopper

algorithmic modeling for Rhino

The WIP release of mesh+ 2.0 is now available for download here.

This release is a complete overhaul of all components and introduces a large range of new functionality. Please report any bugs, issues, etc. on the grasshopper project page.

In addtion to updates to all previous components, new major additions include

  • Analysis components for the return of geometric and topological data
  • Selection components for both manual and parameter based selection of mesh elements
  • Smoothing components which introduces weighted subdivision methods
  • Make components which offer a range of methods for meshing surfaces
  • Mapping components which use Barycentric mapping to morph meshes and curves to mesh face bays.
  • And many other new components...

Sample files will be released shortly.

The following updates are in development now:

  • Make : Diamond Tiling
  • Make : Hexagonal Tiling
  • Smooth : Modified Butterfly
  • Smooth : Doo Sabin
  • Smooth : Face Based
  • Smooth : Edge Based
  • Smooth : Kobbelt
  • Smooth : PN Split
  • Volume : Manta
  • Volume : Gyroid
  • Graphics update (most icons are placeholders)
  • Descriptions will be revisited to check for clarity and consistency

Documentation is under development and will be released at a later time.

I was just checking the sample files and was surprised of all the new approaches and how well they work. I like especially the different morphing and the subdivision components. Also the ring and band topology is interesting. What algorithm is behind them?

Daniel, thanks, huge fan of your work, so I hope you find the components useful, and please feel free to suggest revisions, improvements.

Documentation will be coming in a couple of weeks.

Samples will be out on Friday

New components... tbd.

Whats next is shifting efforts back to Bumblebee, Konrad Sobon has developed a version for Dynamo, and we have substantially rethought the workflow, so that will be coming up in a few months as well as a series of Windows Forms based tools for live chart, graph, and data display. 

Next big step's for m+ will be developed for Rhino 6 and GH2. These will include integration of Plankton for better performance, and a move away from user object to creating an actual GHA. (still to be open source) This will be developed for both GH and also Rhino.

Big update!

Thank you, and thanks for keeping open source. What next? Where you are walking?

Much encouragement with the documentation, doing so is a rather boring for me X)

A small update to the Volume components has been added, adjusting the clr input to work from the volume center rather than just the face center colors.

For those who have downloaded the zip file already, thank you very much!

I do recommend downloading the newest version as the colors in volume are more consistent.
