Hi Jon, thanks for adding, i'm pretty interested about your work and i've been looking around your site some time ago.
i've been using grasshopper only for quiet sometime now, so im still trying to figure out the basic stuff, but i think it would provide such a great help in doing my architectural studies combined with BIM software at hand
has there been any new update about grasshopper and archicad connection?
I am an Architecture student at Monash and just recently finished a Bach in civ. Engineering (last Monday!!) :)
I have been playing around with Grasshopper on and off for a bit over a year. However, I haven't had the privilege to try out geomgym and would love to expose its capabilities. I've got a couple of designs I have completed fairly recently that may present an opportunity to make the most of GG.
At present I am messing about with a snub geometry solver. I originally solved the script manually with sliders (tedious), galapagos wasn't quite accurate enough so I created a 2 level loop using hoopsnake which boosted the accuracy to grasshopper's capabilities, however, this is time dependent.
The current convergence method is parabolic, but Hoopsnake's ability to be paused mid-loop or even just manipulated during the loop presents the opportunity to manually change the step factor while the loop is running (but this obviously needs user input during the looping process).
I'm thinking that it would be possible to define a more dramatic convergence curve that could increase the solving rate and hopefully generalise it, so the curve is not dependent on the starting values. I don't think I'll touch this for a couple of weeks, but I'm open to any suggestions...??
The snub example will be on the Hoopsnake page shortly.
I don't know if there is a better place for posting questions about GG.
Until you tel me so, please help me with one issue:
I´ve got this in GH:
and what i'm trying to do is to set a certain profile to the vertical lines oriented along the normal vectors (or any set of vectors) at vertex of the main cilinder.
I've got the lines, the normal vectors and sdr CP component defining the profile already, and the thing is that I can't find the way to use them, won't tell you about trying to orientate the profiles¡¡¡ I'm sure it's something about me, pure rookie;)
I've just activate the plugging. It looks great. I'll send you the University documentation to extend the license.
I'm attending to every video on youtube I get. In one of them i've seen some components I can't find in the version I've installed. Those beggining with ssi.... are missing. They seem to be very useful (add thickness for example)
I'm in process of changing the gidelines of my thesis on structural analisys since i've discovered GH and its pluggings were yours may be key. Only a year wasted i hope it will be for good¡¡ I wish you can hel me about understanding GG.
