algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Here are some demo's of remeshing with Plankton combined with some relaxation functions from Kangaroo.
(Similar to what I described here:
The first is a simple remeshing aiming for equal edge lengths, while the second also allows interpolation between multiple target lengths, and also optimizes for circle packing.
They require the latest version of Kangaroo to run.
More explanations to follow soon
I just wanted to say, thankyou, for letting us be able to do this. truely wonderful stuff. Any one of these projects would be equivalent to a masters or PHd thesis in computational geometry.
hi daniel script eror, i hew: kangaroo 0099, plankton 3.0
1. Error (CS1705): Assembly 'GH_Kangaroo, Version=0.0.9.9, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' uses 'RhinoCommon, Version=5.1.30000.13, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=552281e97c755530' which has a higher version than referenced assembly 'RhinoCommon, Version=5.1.30000.9, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=552281e97c755530'
helph this problem please, thanks ypou wary much
If you have the latest Kangaroo, there is no need to download this script, as the MeshMachine component included as part of Kangaroo is actually more recent than the one posted here.
Hi Daniel, I was hoping to use the varied radius (shepard's method) circle packing script which I can not get to load with the latest dlls. How can I create this using MeshMachine?
Is there any possibilities in meshmashine to vary the density of the mesh in certain places by attractors in latest kangaroo?
Or is it possible to match the mesh to the points or to the curve within the mesh?
This is amazing work. (I am constantly amazed by your energy to keep developing this awesome set of tools, thanks).
This is now getting extremely close to making kangaroo the perfect tool for re-meshing for computational Fluid Dynamics cases.
Is it possible yet to mesh with kangaroo to create a 3D volumetric mesh within a domain?
IE the model itself is meshed using this adaptive mesh and defined as a boundary wall, but the 3D space 'surrounding' the surface is also meshed adaptively.
IE something like this ...
I'm also very interested in results like this, Andrew. Have you found any solution yet?
Not other than existing Open Source meshing programs (mostly command line or Linux based) - OpenFoam's SnappyHexMesh and a few others), but the ability to do this in Kangaroo, would be fantastic. - Hint Hint
The ability to set a domain case for CFD analysis in OpenFoam would be even more amazing - Hint Hint Hint
To be able to get Kangaroo, to use OpenFoam as part of it's library and get results all inside of Grashopper would be simply amazing, Hint hint hint hint!!
it would make the ONLY CFD analysis software in Rhino/Grasshopper available (A situation I am constantly surprised at considering Rhino/Grasshopper has FSI analysis, amongst other physical simulation options.
Maybe I'm mixing up Structural analysis with FSI?
