Hi, fellow grasshoppers,
ive just started using grasshopper &
i was wondering if there was a beter/shorter way to create Triangle surfaces on 2 curves.
(thinking of plugins? or different way of approuch/blocks)
what i did was divide the curves into points and then created a list where i create squares which are in conjunction to each other. where i use 3 points of the square 2 times.
my input is 2 curves and the result should be a surface of triangles. (or quadrangle.)
(advanced: if the triangle shares the same plane with the conjuction triangle, it forms a pair creating a quadrangle, continue creating quadrangle.
Finally merging quadrangles in 1 large quadrangle until the plane shifts creating triangles again, unless the statement above is repeated.)
You didn’t internalized your initial curve parameter. It’s empty.
Anyway, I usually use plugins like Lunchbox when if I want a simple way.
Or, have a try Relative Item.
Your first solution really shorten the ammount of blocks needed which i was looking for thx.
my curve was a curve drawn in rhino thats why it was probally empty?
I was wondering if i still could apply the advanced question with the first solution
(probally yes, i just have to dissect the surfaces again and apply a if the statement was true or false)
which i think the secund option you gave me might make this easier.
Great thanks for the input you have given
Thanks for the more difficult answer. i think i can manipulate this to create what i want to accomplish.
as when you increase the count from 2 to 6, it creates a larger quadrangle of the 3 smaller 1’s in your example.Question_reV2.gh (21.4 KB)
now what i did notice was that the division in U ware not equaly sized lengths (see picture above)
which i assumed they ware. this might not give the desired solution.
So if i create the curve made from points (nurb curve) this problem is already solved when i input this in Triangluar panels A component.
