I’m new to grasshopper and have done just a few basic tutorials, so forgive my apparent stupidity. I’m in the process of a project which involves numbering and laying out flat the facets that make an angular sculpture. I need to have the number assigned to a facet appearing on the sculpt as well as on the corresponding facet that is laid out (the laid out facets are for CNC purposes and the numbered facets on the sculpt are a guide for assembly).
I have got as far as finding the centre of all my facets and assigning ascending numbers to each of them. I am having problems trying to layout these facets in an even spaced manner when unrolling. Also, the numbering on the sculpture is hidden in my views as they are set in top view plane.
This process sounds simple to me, but I don’t have a firm enough understanding of grasshopper to crack it. I appreciate any help that can be thrown my way!
