algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Kangaroo updated for Grasshopper 0.8.0051

Version 0.066 of Kangaroo is now available:


This should now be compatible with Grasshopper 0.8.0051


One of the new additions is the hinge force, which allows you to control the angle between any pair of connected triangles (The angle is measured in the plane normal to their common edge, so you can control the direction)


If the rest angle is set to zero this can be used for approximating thin plate bending behaviour, and also for unfolding meshes.


If you set the rest angle to the current angle (this release also contains a FoldAngle utility for measuring this), then you can model shells with bending stiffness.


If you assign positive rest angle to some edges and negative angle to others, you can model folding of origami structures (see the attached example).


Also added some other features, such as Tangent Incircle optimization and Plasticity, to be documented soon.

Finally there is a program update. Thanks for sharing! As a resume of the information you provided, I conclude that the program has become much better.

I am extremely happy to see this updated version of Kangaroo that is specifically introduced for the Grasshopper. I always prefer to get professional resume help for preparing my own resume. This updated version is totally compatible with the Grasshopper and it is totally working in a very fine manner.
