algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I've cleaned up Gridshell Components and put together a few example GH files to get started. The inputs and outputs have been rationalised to speed up the modelling process.
I've also added an 'Unroll Curves' component which measures the geodesic curvature of a curve on a surface and produces the 2D 'unrolled' curve. Geodesic curves (e.g. those produced with the Shortpath command) unroll to straight lines. It is now possible to generate fabrication patterns for any arrangement of straight or curved laths over a surface.
The latest GHA:
(note: developed with GH 0.8.0066, still to be tested with 0.9.xxxx)
Example GH files:
