algorithmic modeling for Rhino
hi guys, this may be of interest to all us.
After reading the patent a couple of times I'm not quite getting what the unique part of it is. I'm just wondering if someone here could re-explain it in language that is more direct than the legal language pointing out the claims using some easily understood graphics.
Hey this guys are complete nuts. this (PDF attached) is their paper on the patent thing please read the answer to this question: What if I use other software instead of EvoluteTools to produce the same results, do the patents still apply?
Come on evolute get real you have a very nice tool there.
Hiarious indeed. I presume the planar strips also relates to the method of obtaining cutting patterns from a form-found doubly curved surface which has nothing to do with evolute. Im sure Dassault and Gehrey would find this interesting. They were doing it for years before Evolute. Same for ship building.
Sorry to dig this up again but I came across I nice video of Firefly Dinghy building in the Hamble UK from yesteryear that I thought would be good to share And this seemed an appropriate place :)
