I wanted to face with a modeling a truss structure in grasshopper.
I try to find a way to make plates connecting steel profiles.
There is many video tutorials on youtube and topics on this forum how to make a truss structure but I can’t find any examples of a way to make plates connectors steel beams.
I try to make it by “offset curve” components and the like, as in the picture below, to get points, where next we can “move to/ inject” source geometry of plate (just like a Pufferfish component named “Move to point” does this)
And with a Pufferfish component “Move to point” it almost work, but as You can see, one geometry (triangle plate) it should be in the mirror refleks, but I don’t know how to achive it.
(I know that we can select each of “wrong” plates with use “list item” or maybe a “dispatch”(with a big amount of points) and use “mirror/ rotate”,
but I thought about use something such as"predefined settings addicted from (/dependent on), hmm, maybe from, the right angle between curve. I don’t know.
Maybe there is other component, with which we will do it?
Or maybe You know a smarter way to do it?
(preferably without use a VisualArq)
(Sory for my not too exact question and sory for my English.
I wrote it that way, that even myself don’t know what’s about when I read it , so I understand when nobody will answer).
Any help would be appreciated.
