Alignment using Grasshopper

unhandled

(Katie Andrews) #1

Hi there,

I am trying to develop a script which computes the ‘best’ road alignment dependent on the geographical constraints and technical design standards.

I’m a little stuck at the first principles with the question; Does Grasshopper allow you to create a polyline of a series of lines and arcs (radii dependent on design standards) which would do this?

Thanks,
Katie

Maybe if you post example this will be a lot easier. :slight_smile:

I did overcomplicate it too…!

So essentially I have two endpoints with a line, curve, line, curve, line arrangement, and have created a curve from these elements, and additionally four boxes.
Using sliders and Galapagos, I am trying to get the curve to give me the ‘best’ alignment which is the furthest distance away from each box, but following a route weaving around the boxes.

Thanks
