Populating a Surface with Triangular Panels Hey Guys, I'm trying to figure out how to populate a surface with triangular panels. I found some paneling definitions online that populate a surface with square panels but I haven't seen any that can populate triangular geometry on any surface. Attached is a definition I have been working on thats based on several definitions I found online. so far the definition divides a surface into triangles but when I try to populate it with any triangular geometry its warps the geometry excessively.
grasshopperworkshop The most up to date information is on the Grasshopper Group site . This page may give everyone a place to contribute and learn on teaching the Grasshopper. This workshop will give students a functional understanding of the grasshopper. Allowing them to build on this understanding into more advanced projects of their own. A basic understanding of the Grasshopper Interface

RHINO: GRASSHOPPER DEFINITIONS - RHINO / GH This definition was developed for my final thesis project to generate a louver system based on functional requirements within the building. The performance was then tested in Ecotect. A large part of my thesis design involved invertible arena seating with many moving parts. I used Grasshopper as a means to develop the seating testing clearances, site lines, and many other variables. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure.
Generative Algorithms: Lindenmayer-System (L-System) An L-system or Lindenmayer system is a parallel rewriting system, namely a variant of a formal grammar (a set of rules and symbols), most famously used to model the growth processes of plant development, but also able to model the morphology of a variety of organisms. L-systems can also be used to generate self-similar fractals such as iterated function systems. L-systems were introduced and developed in 1968 by the Hungarian theoretical biologist and botanist from the University of Utrecht, Aristid Lindenmayer (1925–1989).
What is this component and where can I find it? Text Components If you are trying to learn GH through a video tutorial and can read a components name on the screen but don't know where to find it then you can invoke the Create Facility by double clicking on the Canvas or using the shortcut key F4. Type the name into the box that appears and you will be presented with a list of likely candidates. Once you have found the most likely culprit you can selected it from the list and place it on the Canvas. Both Icon and Text If you have downloaded someone else's definition and are wondering where you can get a component from on the Ribbon then provided you have the GH window wide enough to display all components [EDIT: This is now capable of showing any component in the dropdown menus] then you can hold down Ctrl+Alt and click on the component.
Unrolling Surfaces in Grasshopper This Grasshopper definition is proof of concept for a VB component that unrolls developable surfaces to the XY plane. To make the component, I’ve adapted a rhinoscript by Andrew Kudless (of Matsys) to run in VB, enlisting the help of CCA student Ripon DeLeon to write the code.This example uses the VB component to create unrolled surfaces from 4 curves that I have distorted using the cage edit command in rhino. To use the definition on your own projects, simply choose any 4 curves to loft between in sequential order.
