algorithmic modeling for Rhino



Mesh+ is a set of user components which produce topological effects from mesh faces and point sets using variable methods of subdivision and normal based three dimensional distortion. 

We are pleased to announce the Beta Release of version 2.0


Images tagged: Mesh(+)mesh(+)

The current version of mesh(+) is developed for:

 - Rhino 5 (32 & 64)

 - Grasshopper version 0.9.0056 (For Rhino 5)

 - Recommended Download: Weaverbird

Mesh+ is a set of user objects which enable a wide range of mesh editing, creation, interaction, and topology modification within Grasshopper 3d.

Component categories are:

Analyze | Returns, topological, geometric, and contextual mesh information

Show | Displays topological information

Select | Allows for manual or parameter driven interaction with Rhino or Grasshopper meshes

Modify | Changes topological properties of a mesh

Edit | Alters the physical and makeup of a mesh

Make | Creates meshes from a series of geometric inputs

Map | Uses Barycentric mapping to morph geometery into mesh face bays

Smooth | Applies a series of weighted smoothing methods

Subdivision | Divides faces into new configurations in comprehensive sets based on edge consistency

Effects | Applies a series of more complex mesh configurations to existing mesh faces

Volume | Creates meshes spanning between two similar meshes of tripoly periodic surfaces and custom solutions.

Weave | Creates physically seperated but interlinked meshes

Loop | Creates iterative effects which build off selected faces

This component set was developed to work with Weaverbird.

Installation and Prerequisites 

  • To use mesh(+) you will need the Rhino 5 and the latest Grasshopper 3d installed.
  • Download the mesh(+) User Object Collection.
  • Because mesh(+) is a collection of user objects, it does not have a gha or installer, rather the user files contained in the downloadable zip folder can simply be copied into your local grasshopper user objects folder which can found by going under grasshoppers File > Special Folders > User Objects. (see: )
  • All user objects have the prefix “m(+)” designating them as mesh(+) files.
  • Once the files have been copied to the above location a new mesh(+) tab should appear in the Grasshopper component ribbon
  • All mesh(+) components are VB components and are fully modifiable.
  • These components were conceived with the intention of using the Weaverbird plugin for subdivision, smoothing the mesh effects.

m+ Face Area giving double area 2 Replies

hi all,I was using the m+FaceArea component to get area of faces for a weighted avg calculation. For curved planar surfaces (200m2 - 1000m2) it was taking a lot of time, grid size 0.1m. takes a few…Continue

i am trying to input a list to the weave components and they dont accept lists. when i right click to select list access i get this error
1. Specified cast is not valid. (line: 414)

am i doing something wrong?

David, the new component works great, thank you very much. Wieland

Apologies for the delay in posting the sample files. Put together a more up to date set of samples. They are attached to this

Taken a while to address this issue... I've updated the components... cleaned up a few other issues I came across in the newest upload DOWNLOAD HERE. Also added a new component with the structure you suggested in the second image.

Hi David,

first of all thank you very much for mesh(+) its a great tool an I like it a lot.

I tested the m(+) cross component and I was wondering if it is possible to get the same amount of mesh subdivisions on the upper and under flange? If I subdivide the mesh with WB like this I get an uneven appearance.

Second question:

Is it possible to build a component that creates a structure like this?

Thank you and greetings from Munich, Wieland

something went wrong when i am download it,could you please attach it on you group page ,thankssss !

The download for the samples seems to be working.

Did you download them from:

Comment by David on May 11, 2014 at 3:47am

i can't download the example files,could you please upload the files again,many thanks!

Comment by David Mans on November 16, 2013 at 11:08pm


Thank you again for the suggestion.

Tooltip descriptions have been added to all components.

Will be adding new samples shortly.

This is great. Thank you for the update.
