I’m very new to Kangaroo. I made a simple definition in an attempt to make a couple 2d patterns I like into a geodesic dome. I’m clearly missing something, as you can see below.
Both patterns yield wonky, asymmetrical results, though one is a little more of an orderly chiral result.
What I’m asking for help on:
Is there another kangaroo goal I could add to the mix to force the mesh edges that are collinear in the flat version to stay collinnear in the relaxed version?
Is there just a better way to do this in general? I’m trying Kangaroo because I “pull” and “project” are worse.
can this be done in kangaroo in some way that eliminates the non-pentagonal faces shown below and just treats them as voids? Maybe using a line network rather than a mesh? For my end application, I want planar pentagons and radial symmetry, but the other shapes in the pattern don’t need to be planar. This seems like it’d be easier, or maybe just make something that’s otherwise impossible into something that’s possible?
Here is my definition:
