algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Complete hexagon on surface script / Complete diagrid on an surface script

Hey guys,

Here are two definitions that are really helpfull for me, i hope they are for you guys as well.

1) Complete (with side edges) hexagonal grid on any surface. There are some vb scripts out there but they dont give you the edges. Also the lunchbox plugin gives you only the individual lines, and some weird things happen at the edges. This def works 100%.

2) Complete diagrid (with side edges) on any surface. I think there are some vb scripts out there that do this, this is all with gh-components. 


P.S. Im working on a diagrid on any mesh component which i have working, there are some minor bugs to fix but i hope to release that one soon!

EDIT: updated def in python with multiple surfaces as input support (you need the python for grasshopper plugin

Hi Juan!

What seems to be the problem? You want all three surfaces to work together for the attractor?

I would make a very small fillet on the kinks of your two curves and then loft them togheter, resulting in a surface. This way the attractor works on the whole. 

Good luck!

Hi! I have a planar polysurface is that is giving me trouble. Could use some help. I attached some pictures.

Hey Davide, use this one instead , it works with mutliple surfaces as input. I put it in the EDIT above. P.S. you need the python for grasshopper plugin:

hi very nice definition.

is there a way to avoid the interconnection between edges when you put a list of open surfaces?

i tried by grafting or simplifying but this didn't help.

Very nice hexagon grid.  Thanks for sharing!!

very nice, i have tried it and wanna fabricate it. But i have some problem, that curve in each hexagon pile up between each others, so the joints can't attached well. So how to make every hexagon in the definition become a single curve? Thanks before #needhelp
