I’ve been creating this image using Blender + manual work and I like to know if someone knows if this is somehow doable in Grasshopper. Maybe @DanielPiker can advise if this is feasible in the first place.
To make it work (somewhat, after many exploding attemtps) I created this simplified model in blender:
after that I baked out the simulation, brought it back to Rhino and replaced the lower cluster of simplified chains with the correct model. Needless to say this is a tedious process and if somehow the client needs some change…(change to the chains, say that 50 times)
I attached the final chain link in Rhino 5 format in case someone wants to have a go at it.
edit: and the chain geometry: chain.3dm (123.1 KB)
