Weaverbird – Topological Mesh Editor Weaverbird is a topological modeler that contains many of the known subdivision and transformation operators, readily usable by designers. Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in reconstructs the shape, subdivides any mesh, even made by polylines, and helps preparing for fabrication. Weaverbird – 0.9.0.1 For Rhino 6 using Yak. Open this Grasshopper definition to install Weaverbird using the new-in-Rhino-6 Yak packet manager. Main topological commands: Catmull-Clark smoothing (wbCatmullClark). Split mesh into Quads (wbSplitQuad). Loop smoothing (wbLoop). Split mesh with inner face (wbSplitPolygons). Sierpinsky Triangles subdivision (wbSierpinskyTriangle). Frame (wbFrame). Carpet (wbCarpet). Window (wbWindow). New mesh primitives definitions: wbPrism, wbAntiPrism, wbPyramid, wbDiPyramid Additional commands: – wbOptions. – wbProperties.
Rhino I’m excited to announce that I will be doing a workshop in interactive parametric modelling with Studio Mode and MakerBot in New York, Feb 19-20 (with an optional extra day on Feb 21). We will be using Processing along with CAD tools like Rhino3D to produce parametric models to output 3D models for digital fabrication. MakerBot Industries have graciously offered to lend us some MakerBot Thing-o-matics to produce models from the workshop. The full announcement follows below, please visit Studio Mode’s announcement for enrollment and more details. Continued… 3D printing, architecture, digital-fabrication, makerbot, parametric-design, processing.org, studio mode, Workshops Exciting news: Studio Mode (aka Ronnie Parsons and Gil Akos) and I are working on plans for a parametric design workshop using Processing and Rhino/Grasshopper in New York later this year. Exact dates and format of the workshop are to be determined, but we’re hoping for early December. Code: randCube.rvb Workshop contents

Scripting Essentials Getting Started with Scripting Getting started with scripting can be a daunting task for numerous reasons: not knowing exactly where and how best to start, the mountains of documentation available, etc., so below’s an abbreviated approach that should help. Concentrate first on creating simple scripts using the Documentation and Steps to Developing Scripts. The scripting tool referred to here is RhinoScript accompanying Rhino, the 3D modeling software. Hello World! 1) Tools menu: RhinoScript > Edit … (alternatively, Command line: _EditScript) or use a simple text editor, like Windows Notepad, to create and edit your script; save with the .rvb file extension (in this case, save as HelloWorld.rvb) Sub HelloWorld Rhino.MessageBox (“Hello World!”) 2) Tools menu: RhinoScript > Load … (alternatively, Command line: _LoadScript) Add … (browse to where you saved HelloWorld.rvb and Open it) Load … (select HelloWorld from the list of scripts and press Load) Facilitating Script Development / ToolBars
Drawing in perspective with Inkscape When you come across with perspective for the first time, in the beginning it seems that this artistic tool is very difficult to master. But in fact, everything is much easier — you just have to understand what it represents. And eventually tenacity and practice will do the trick. The first thing we need to know in order to construct a picture in perspective is the location of the horizon line — the line where the sky seems to meet the land. To create a perspective in Inkscape we can use helper lines — guides. I. By default, using the 3D Box tool (Shift + F4) we can create a box in two-point perspective (a box stands at an angle to us). H — horizon line X — vanishing point of the left side of the box Z — vanishing point of the right side of the box There is no vanishing point in the Y direction, because these lines are absolutely vertical and parallel to each other. Vanishing points at two-point perspective should be located far enough from each other. II. III. That’s all!
Rhinoceros Revit Dimensions: More Than Meets the Eye, Part 2 by: Kate Morrical | 08/05/2013 Welcome to Revit Dimensions: More Than Meets the Eye, Part 2. (If you missed Part 1, click here to read it.) When we left off last time, I had just shown you how to display “equality text,” used to indicate equal spacing of items. But of course, that isn’t your only option for equality text. If you select the dimension and head over to the Properties Palette, you’ll see Equality Display under Other. Equality Text is the default, and it replaces each instance of the dimension value with text. We’re still not done with options, though. For today, we’ll focus on the Other section. Equality Formula is where you get to have some fun. Now for the explanation. Click Okay, and…ta-da! There’s one last tweak you could make to streamline the display even more. Your options are Tick and Line, Tick Only, and Hide. Even better, let’s say I need to add a beam to this bay. Our final topic today is modifying the dimension text. Just remember: Use this power wisely!
