# Mapping a hexagonal grid on a surface + Karamba for beam sizes

Results from day 3 of our Grasshopper level 2 workshop with Simply Rhino: Mapping a hexagonal grid on a surface based on UV parameters. Then using Karamba to define the thickness of the beams based on bending moments.

Arthur,

I'm working on a project involving hexagonal geometry in karamba, and saw this posting yesterday.  I rebuilt the script based on your attached image, however when I set a surface to the definition, cplanes explode all over the model.  Is there something that's missing or that I'm not doing correctly?  I would like to see the feasibility of this exercise as an exploratory iteration.  Maybe the fact that im just drawing a rectangle and patching it 2x2 to use as a surface?

Thanks Arth, I appreciate this.
Definition applies to the newest karamba 1.0.2 version?

Hi Djordje, thanks for your kind comment. There is a lot in the def shown in the printscreen that is not directly related to the result (just tangential ideas that emerged during the class). You should be able to do what's up there with the simplified def below. Join us on facebook for some updates on future classes :)

I guess this is only for presentation purposes.
It is not possible to get a larger image of that definition?
