Design tools for inflatable structures

Abstract: The design of inflatable structures is a challenging task that involves three different phases: the definition and control of complex 3d free forms, the prediction of behaviour of such forms under pressure and the generation of the cutting pattern. For architects and engineers, a parametric design tool would be useful for the definition and control of complex 3d free form. This paper presents the research about the definition of a parametric tool for the preliminary design of inflatable structures based on the plug-in Grasshopper® for Rhinoceros® and the cutting pattern software Terraflat®.

Step 1: To begin you will need to find a source image of water drops so that you can study the relationship of the wave spacing and intensity.

Simulating Water Drops on Wood

You might find one that is better than the one I used. Step 2: Bring that image into Photoshop and draw vertical lines at the peaks and valleys of the waves. Step 3: Select the Gradient Tool. Step 4: Click on the window in the options bar that shows the active gradient ramp. This opens the Gradient Editor Dialogue box.

Step 5: Click underneath the gradient bar to add more color swatches. Step 6: Expand the window horizontally until the gradient bar spans these vertical lines representing the peaks and valleys. Step 7: We will now define the colors of these swatches keeping in mind the visual reference of the source water drop image. The values I used were the following from left to right. another way to look at this to get an idea of relative amplitude of the waves... Step 8: We will now set a transparency ramp for the new gradient.

The goal of this project is developing a wireless glove and a software framework to manipulate a parametric model in Rhino 3D.

Computational Design Lab

The glove reads user’s hand movement and gestures using mounted sensors on it. Then a LilyPad Arduino gathers sensors data as input, processes them, and sends them using a XBee module wirelessly to the computer. The software framework on computer gets sent data using another XBee module, connected to the computer. Finally, the framework translate data to information for controlling the parametric model in Rhino 3D.

Designing freeform objects can be difficult when working with traditional CAD software.

The best way to read this tutorial about how to model a ring using T-Splines is by looking at the 3D model at the same time. In this tutorial, anything in Blue is a Rhino command, while anything in Red is a T-Splines command. Ring ProfileFirst, draw the main profile of the ring using Curve. This particular design consists of two hearts connected by the body of the ring. Control PolygonUse ExtractControlPolygon to extract the control polygons of the curves. Each line intersection will determine where the control points will be on the surface. ParametricModel - a library of parts. Resources.

Introduction Rhinoceros1 is a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) application developed for Windows since 1992 by Robert McNeel and Associates (Seattle, WA, USA)2.

Assembly Plugin for Rhino

It is popularly known as “Rhino”, and is used by more than 150,000 professionals around the globe for its powerful freeform modeling. Rhino’s license fees start below $1,000, yet its functionality is similar to that found in products typically costing 20 to 50 times more. It is based on the open 3DM file format, which is available to any software developer for reading/writing in the framework of the openNURBS initiative3. CAD models are more than just collections of geometric shapes; they also contain design information called design intent. Rhino lacks design intent. Since 1999 LEDAS has specialized in creating parametric engines for CAD/CAM/CAE and other applications.
