algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Hi at all,
I want to try a offset from a mesh in Grasshopper.
I have try this with Wb but the mesh does not look good.
Is it possible to get the rhino function offsetmesh via VB or C#?
Or there are other ways to get an offset with grasshopper?
Oh and the mesh is not planar!!
Maybe post the mesh in question to show what 'does not look good' means ?
Looks like WB and MeshOffset give the same result on my test-case. Can you show us what's wrong with the WeaverBird mesh?
The Rhino offset function is available in the SDK, so you could call it from within a VB/C# script component. Do this:
A = M.Offset(d)
It works perfect.
Is it now possible to close the offset?
How could it be integrated to make the resulting mesh as a solid?
Once more thanks for the great quick and efficient solutions. I can say i created my first VB component!
The Mesh.Offset method has an optional solidify input.
Hello Andres, thanks for the reference.
Since i'm not familiar with scripting, I wouldn't know which lines to add to include solidify option.
Amazing, thank you!
How can i save the newly created pythonscript component (to which i added an S input bool for solidity) as a GHA user object? I might not be using this mesh transformation for weeks now, so it could be useful having it as a custom object.
No worries :)
