I’m working on a motion simulation of an openable flexible glass. I want to approximately show how the glass bends depending on a few parameters.
I have managed to put the geometry in grasshopper and a put in place the parameters I want to manipulate as sliders. What I’m struggling with is the bending line of the glass. I want it to start tangential at the fixation point and then bend according to the lever position. As this is primarily for visualization purposes so this does not have to be a 100% mechanically accurate.
I hope someone can give me a hint on how to integrate such a curve into my model. As I’m relatively new to grasshopper please excuse my existing gh file, it might be really cumbersome and unwieldy
Here I’ve sketch what the final visualization should look like
Thats the lines and Points in Rhino, I have so far
