algorithmic modeling for Rhino
PanelingTools is a Rhino plugin to rationalize design forms and generate design patterns. Details are in:
PanelingTools creates ordered grids of points as base for applying any custom paneling idea. Panels take the format of curves, surfaces or mesh faces among others. All panels are serialized in order relative to the base grid.
I plan to eventually create PanelingTools component set inside Grasshopper to access its functionality, but until then, I've written functions to help smoother workflow between PT and GH.
Please let me know if you need any component/function and I will be happy to add to the list.
Attached are two components (written with 0.6.0059):
1- Select Grid. Output a GH datatree of the ordered set of paneling points.
2- Select Panels: Output list of panels and parallel list of their serial numbers. You may use a list sort component to order panels as in the example.
