algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Mesghali Studio Grasshopper Master Tools . Volume 01

I've created a running Grasshopper Definition that i feel can be useful to people using the plug-in and Rhino in general for professional work in retail environments, furniture / carpentry and general fabrication.

I will add updated versions as I build more tools in my practice and organize the file as feedback comes in. Feel free to reach out if you have an issue using them or need further explanation.

There are three main functions in the toolkit for now:

1. Turn any brep box into a series of butt jointed sheets

2. Turn any brep box into a series of mitered sheets

3. Turn any flat surface into an adjustable fabricated wall flat with front facing sheets and studs (warning, only works in one direction, parallel to x axis)

This is a work in progress. Open to any and all feedback:


You can either open the associated Rhino file, or rely on internalized data in the script. Same thing.

I'll check it out another time. By internalized I mean geometry that is drawn in Rhino and which you use those definitions on. So when you've linked a surface, which you drew in rhino, to the grasshopper file then you can right click and press "internalize data". Then if you delete the surface in Rhino, the surface is still saved in grasshopper.

I just added an associated rhino file in the blog post. let me know if that helps :) by internalized do you mean a geometry that is self constructed in grasshopper with parameters instead of sourced?

A big help would be if you internalize some geometry as an example. Now it is kind of guessing on which scale (or in which direction) you need to draw something to try and get a result.

thanks for the feedback. i just looked into the file and i think i can organize it better. im also going to upload a video to my youtube channel explaining the whole thing. If any components or parts are outdated let me know. i tried to make sure its compatible with the latest releases.

I can see some of these tools being quite useful. But I think as of now they're a bit hard to figure out / buggy to use.

im going to explain it with a video soon.

What does it do? If useful, consider posting it on food4Rhino.
