BBWaffle:

Creates a waffle structure from a volume.

The component can handle multiple holes and is very fast!

Waffle open surfaces quickly e.g. by using the offset or extrude component (see examples).

BBRadial:

Create a radial waffle structure from a mesh.

BBLayer:

Creates a layer model from a volume.

You can specify a border to create a hollow. The border defines the minimum overlapping of the parts (e.g. for glue)

BBSection:

Creates a section model from a volume.

You can specify the section planes.

Note: BBWaffle, BBRadial, BBLayer and BBSection support only meshes. I droped Brep support because of the very low performance and stability. Use Grasshoppers mesh tools to generate meshes from Breps (see examples).

 

BBOffset, BBUnion, BBDifference, BBIntersection, BBXor:

Fast offset and boolean operations for linear polylines.

 

BBText:
Represents text with a single line font for labeling and engraving.

It uses a self made font engine which works very fast and accurate. All characters consist of lines and arcs. No Nurbs, no duplicate curves! Perfect for fabrication!

You can define location, orientation and size of the text. Choose between normal and bold font.

The component supports the following characters:

Basic Latin:
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

Extended Latin:
ßÀÈÌÒÙàèìòùÁĆÉÍĹŃÓŔŚÚŹáéíóúÂĈÊĜĤÎĴÔŜÛÃĨÑÕŨÄËÖÜäöüÅåŮŐŰČĎĚŘŠŤŽĂŬĀĒŌŪĊĖŻĄÇĘĶĻŅŢŲØøŦĐÆæ

Numbers:
0123456789

Special Characters:
+-*/±=≡÷<>≤≥«»()[]{}%∞√≈˜!?&'",;.:\_∑∫∢▹◃≠#≙□⌀◿◅$¢€‰@©®²³…^°

Greek Letters:
ΑΒΓΔΕΖΗΘΙΚΛΜΝΞΟΠΡΣΤΥΦΧΨΩαβγδεζηθικλμνξοπρστυφχψω
