Greetings Daniel,

I'm wondering if there is a way to manipulate this script so you can define the bottom triangle segments length, and the strut length as a constant variable in order to result with top triangle segments at a desired value? From what I understand of the t-prism module, as you rotate the top triangle, it moves vertically either up or down based on rotation direction. If you were to rotate the triangle in the direction that moves the top triangle down, the struts would move out which would grow the radius of the top triangle. 

I am trying to parametrically model a t-prism module so that I can then move on to tackling the challenge of connecting them to form a tensegrity network. The work I'm doing is for a pavilion my studio created this summer. We were working on a short 5 week deadline and I was unable to figure out the parametrics of the pavilion before the end of the semester. Hopefully, if I can come up with the script we will have a complete package to put together for publication. 

If you have a chance to look at this I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you.
