I am fairly new to grasshopper and am trying to wrap a twisting tower with uniform facade panels. I am having two issues:
I have not been able to figure out how to to get the panels to “terminate” or “align” at the floor plate lines. I have used the twisted box method to get the panels on the tower but do not know how to get them to align with the floors. The panels are offset (see attached image for desired effect), which has complicated things when coupled with the geometry of the tower. In addition, the floors at the top of the tower are slightly taller than the typical floors of the rest of the tower. (Note: This project is in meters)
The panels must be applied in a manner so that they are as uniform as possible. By this I mean the variation between panels needs to be minimized in order to be constructed efficiently. The edges of the tower are radiused and I understand that custom panels would be needed to achieve this turn. Ideally the rest of the tower would be covered with geometrically identical panels. I divided the tower using Paneling Tools into U and V lines and then used twisted box to apply the facade but this has netted panels that are almost all unique. I am looking to standardize how they sit on the facade.
I would be very greatly for any insight from the community in how to tackle these problems. I have been all over the forums but haven’t had much luck troubleshooting this.
