this is my first post here and I will start with a question, so hopefuly I will do everything correct
I have started using Grasshopper and immediately had the first task to create a rather special ramp. Here is a screenshot from rhino:
I have some problems in creating the correct geometry, hence I will describe the task.
The ramp needs 4 control points (0, 1, 2 and 4), to control the height of the ramp which in the end gives the slope. The 3rd point is special and should be automatically calculated depending on the height of point 2 and 4 and their corresponding distances to point 3. I have connected all the points and then did a trim of the surface with the curve from below.
The basic shape comes from archicad as a polyline and this is the script that I have developed so far. Probably many of you will do it much easier, but as a total beginner… this is where I stand
Can anyone help me with the script and especially to define a single surface out of 5 points (currently I have two surfaces!). Also how can I make this shape a solid (currently the sides are open). For tips and hints I will be very thankful…
…and my Grasshopper journey sowly beginns…
