algorithmic modeling for Rhino

I just finished a short tutorial on producing a knitted fabric (specifically the stockinette pattern) on any Rhino surface using the beloved GH.



You can read it here, and download the definition for a chained pattern as well.

Fantastic! Thank you for this great tutorial.

Great work!
I tried doing this back in 2003 using an early GenerativeComponents but it was really hard work and required a lot of custom code. In the end I abandoned the GC version and got something half working in RhinoScript a few years later.
The real catch is to find a way to simulate the elasticity and "springyness" of an actual material for it to be applicable to any physical manufacturing.

Hi Thomas,

I know this post is from a while ago, but I was wandering if you ever managed to find a way to simulate the elasticity and "springyness" of the material. It is something I am working on now, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

This is far beyond my level of maths, but you might find something useful in http://www.cs.cornell.edu/projects/YarnCloth/thesis_compressed.pdf

This pattern give me a cool idea to make a cover for a cushion. I'll do with a Australian really bulky yarn (made to hand knit) that you can buy in this knitting supplies online store
