algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I am trying to use the "shatter" function to split a series of segments at their intersection points. So first I use the function "Multiple curves" and then "shatter" them at the parameters resulting tb.
I have been trying to re-parametrize, flattening, grafting... but as you can see in the snapshot I posted, it misses to split the segments at a portion of the intersection points (the ones at the bottom right of the hexagons).
Can somebody help? I couldn't find many explanations on the "Shatter" command, and the ones on this blog have not helped... I don't fully understand how the command works, so somebody who does might be able to easily solve it.
I hope somebody out there has the answer :)
Moved from FAQ into Discussion...
sorry about that, I thought I had to specify a topic section.. I am new to the site... :)
You probably need to flatten the output of Offset.
Or try attached file: (drag it on GH canvas and a new component should appear near Shatter)
gosh! I used the command you just sent me! IT WORKS!! thank you so much! I am actually taking a look at the "script imbedded within it"... just to see if I can understand where my mistake was :)
Again, thank you so much Systemig!!!
awesome systemiq, really useful for cleaning up messy offsets but also for finding the largest enclosed surface by random lines. nice one!
I am curious, how do you used it to find the largest enclosed surface ?
(I made another definition to find all surfaces defined by intersecting curves, using ShatterInt, but I needed Surface Split and a good amount of additional code)
Aaah I didn't know either, always used this component with simple closed curves. I didn't think it could handle intersecting stuff and naked vertices like that.
Good to know.
Wow, very useful component! Thank you Sistemig ;)
that worked for me too :)
thanks for that
