How to create multiple rectangles from the array of points that are moved in the z-axis by a random value where all of the rectangles would be in different planes.
eg. A rectangle along pts 8,9,18,19
These rectangles would then be used as input for ArchiCAD roof command on grasshopper.
- Please post your definition, with internalized data.
- Those quads aren’t planar, so you can’t exactly derive a rectangle from the vertices of every grid module. You might be able to use the “fit plane” component on the points and put a rectangle on the plane, but it won’t create a closed roof.
They can also be just closed curves. As long as they join all 4 points, the ArchiCAD command should then be able to convert them furtherroofs.gh (58.6 KB)
I don’t have ArchiCAD, but could this be useful? irregular roof.gh (7.7 KB)
Yes, thank you so much Mark.
