I need to create same perforated panels for an architectural project. Every panel has about 2000 Holes in it. I know this is a lot… The layout of the holes is done in grasshopper, basically generating curves on surfaces. When I try to split a single surface with all those curves it takes up to 10 mins until calculations are done. Doing this for like 100 Panels is not really an option and probably file size would go though the roof.
Is there any other way to speed up this process and at the same time have a geometry with actual holes in it ?
The only other way I see otherwise is exporting curves on surfaces for coordination with consultants and generating custom alpha maps per panel in grasshopper which could then be used for rendering.
