algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Defining a parametric weave with Grasshopper

In this video tutorial, you'll learn how to cull and organize rows of points in order to create a woven structure. Components such as the param viewer, tree branch and cull pattern are used.

Sun Xuan... you need to get a VPN... It's a must have!!  I'm working in Beijing and I wouldn't be able to access any of the resources I could back in the states if I didn't have one...

Dear Brian,

Thank you so much for your kind suggestion.

Many web sites such as YouTube and Facebook are not available in China,which maybe incredible for you.Despite of this, I will frequently be here to  try to learn more.

Hi Sun, I think it may be your network not allowing you to view social sharing sites like Vimeo. I have seen this before on some corporate networks. Try access from another computer outside of you current local network. Also check to see if you can't access any other videos on Vimeo or YouTube... this would prove my hunch.

Video is playing fine here Sun. You can try another browser or the direct Vimeo link here... You can download it from that page as well.

To wrap the weave onto a non-flat surface, I'd use FlowAlongSrf ( in Rhino after baking out the geometry. You could use GH to do it all but that would require a different definition probably starting with a referenced surface. 

For making the weave look like satin or twill, you will need to bake the geometry and use a rendering engine in Rhino. Brazil, Vray or Maxwell would all do the job nicely.

Dear Brian,

Thank you very much indeed. I am wondering if there is any chance to change the surface shape (in this case, changing a flat surface into a sphere for instance)?

And if there is any option to change this plain textile pattern into Satin or Twill or any other desired textile patterns?

Many thanks in advance.
