Hi everyone, I made a definition in grashopper and I am able to create 1000 variations for the design but my task is to put 1000 variations on PDF file in vector style. So I couldn’t figure out how will I bake 1000 variatins and put them on a pdf. If it was 5 I would bake 5 copies and with make2d command I got the drawings and I would export to Adobe Illustrator. But how will I do this application to 1000 different forms? There should be an automatic process :S
I am sure there are many ways. I put data in layers and then used Elefront and a custom script to write everything in a pdf. I printed the 300 parts of my design.
Here some pictures of my last project.
There will be 9 suction cups to maintian the 800 mm glass
The table is done with 235 (62 + 65 + 4*2) laser cutted 1 mm thick aluminium pieces. 65 pieces where painted in black. Non painted piece were engraved. The were cutted by “Le metalist” https://www.lemetalist.fr.
Junction pieces were doubled to augment the rigidity. All pieces are hold together by 1981 (1945 + 36) 3.2 mm aluminium alumini…
I am at a little level (not a professional) but I went through the quite complete process.
My process is explained here.
For generation of drawing I am not expert in Layout so I used my own PDF generator.
For reference video or documentation search with keyword “Elefront” (rhino plugin) and “Morpheus” (the hotel)
It seems that this is too much to ask, so let me explain what I really need:
I am working on a script that automatically reads an Excel sheet that my company has, to make a model of a assembly (similar to the gh file I attached in the main post) and display it with measurements and material count.
My boss wants me to add a system in this to print this display on A4 so it can be sent to the workplace for production/assembly. It needs to be idiot-proof because the person who prepares those drawi…
