Unfolding with Compound Transforms. 2013 update: this is probably a better way to go. Cross posted here. Lately, in some of my work I have been investigating unfolding complex forms with Grasshopper. The newest release of Grasshopper enables the use of Compound Transformations, which makes it possible to quite efficiently unfold strips of planar surfaces. In the past I have had to use pepakura or other similar utilities to perform the unfolding outside of Rhino, or alternately a slow faux-recursive method where I essentially unfold one segment of the polysurface at a time.

Below are a few definitions making use of this new capability. Finally, with the right settings on the same definition (setting V divisions to 1 and U divisions to some high number) it can be used to substitute for the UnrollSrf command in Rhino with a high degree of accuracy. DigiFab Links (Blogroll) [FORMul[a]RCH] Path Mapper Help.

As a result of a request please find a series of examples for using the Path Mapper component. The First installment of this is showing the Path Mapper imitating some already existing components. Flatten, Graft, Simplify and Flip Matrix. There is also an additional example showing Integer Divide to which there is no existing component.

For those uninitiated in the dark arts of pathmapper the component can be found on the Sets Tab> Tree Section with the icon of a red cube. UPDATED to correct an error in the Flip Matrix demonstration path_count should be item_count. Updated: 2011-04-20 Replace Branches Not sure if it's right to include this here as its actually encouraging you not to use the Path Mapper, but sometimes there are benefits to being able to keep the definition free from restrictions like the Path Mapper. I hope to follow this up with some more..... Tags: Branches, Mapper, Path, Pathmapper, Replace Attachments: PathMapper_20110315.ghx, 658 KB ▶ Reply to This.

The piece is comprised of over 4400 separate colorful panels. It is being made possible by all of our kind and generous friends who have donated to our Kickstarter page… Follow along, watch for updates and donate if you feel like it! There are still plenty of spaces for names and messages. So far the list of communal GH thanks extends to the following (the definition’s not quite done yet… there may be more people to thank in the end): Chris Chalmers of BIOS : Unrolling Surfaces in Grasshopper @ [ u t o ] : Mesh Analysis and Utility Component Giulio Piacentino : Grasshopper tools in C# : txtLines Damien Alomar : JPEG file output consultation Repeat for other end.

Posts Tagged ‘Rhinoscript’ This simple rhinoscript, developed to randomize sets of objects for material application in rendering, allows the user to select a set of objects and place them into a user specified number of groups. Part of a library of environmental effect graphic generators this Rhino Script produces a series of lines which fall like rain upon Rhino’s cplane. If a droplet hits there is a splash. The user can input the number clusters where the rain will fall from, the relative radius of the cluster, the percentage of the way that the rain can fall short as well as a few other conditions. The rain is colored with a gradient according to distance along the V domain of the surface to allow for the production of depth.

In using laser cut files directly out of Rhino, I consistently found the need for a command similar to “overkill” in Autocad for Rhino. In addition those pesky overlapping surfaces which create render artifacts and kill render time just needed a quick fix. GH Definition : Labeling | www.christopherwhitelaw.us.

From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book. Grasshopper is an exciting and evolving modeling platform - the following examples attempt to develop a range of geometric examples to explore its form-making potentials.

Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. You should have this handy for reference. Helpful Modules These modules are provided to supplement Grasshopper with a few simple features. These are used throughout the following examples. Truss Module Grasshopper 3D Truss This module creates an offset truss from a given surface. Point Topology The simplest form of data to work with, points can be propagated into 3D space and can have geometry mapped to them.
