Creating a Diagonal Mullion System on a Doubly Curved Surface


(Vietbrohood) #1

Hello,

Im trying to create mullions that are attached to the doubly curved surface that I have created. Im trying to make them make a diagonal grid that makes the surface into a series of planer curves that still create the curvature of the facade. I have lunchbox, but im not really sure how to use it to create what I want. If anyone could help me with this I would be very grateful.

Thank you

Hi,

Sorry to bother you again but I can’t seem to get the program to work on the surface that I’m working on. I can’t seem to apply the script to the curvature that I made. If it isn’t too much trouble would you be able to create a script that can be applied to my surface? I have attached the file to this message. Also it says that I have to have a ‘mesh pipe’ plug in, and I’m wondering what program you got that from.

Thank you

Why don’t you just use Lunchbox?

Thank you,

I got it to work nicely, but there is one thing that I’m having trouble with. I cant seem to make the diagonal grid apply the pipes which was my original goal. I managed to create a script that make the mullions but it isn’t continuous throughout the surface like I need it to be. I’m not very good at grasshopper so I may have done something wrong.
