algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Do you want to find the points you drew by hand or do you really want to change the ellipses to have a different start/end-point?
And, how do you define "the right position"?
I understand that, but how did you decide to place the green dots where you did?
I think this is to divide the ellipse up into a number of points for the purpose of voronoi tiling.
If this is the case, and you're basing the location on being opposite the longest edge then the following method gets you 6 points distributed around the ellipse starting at that point. It uses an intersection line to split the ellipse to get a new start for each half then combines the points back into one branch.
It's been set up to receive multiple sets of 3 points but the pathmapper will probably need to be altered depending on the structure.
David will undoubted-ably show you a much more straight forward method. :)
thanks a lot for your support!
this is a very helpful and targeted method, but no longer linked
parametrically with the definition made by you:
primarily with the input parameter: segment number of the polygon.
the geometric scaffolding that the picture below shows
is made by an increment of 4 and 8 in the input parameter:
segment number of the polygon. so when i change this parameter,
i must choose the points for the ellipses again.
I do not want to seem ungrateful. i have again learned something from you.
hope it goes on.
thanks a lot.
