Pretty new to GH and trying to build a parametric solver to flatten gores for a sphere. Pretty sure I am going about this wrong and am stuck. I have a polar array and a linear array of lines projecting to my sphere. In rhino I divide all of the lines and measure the curve from the linear array and move the next curve up the incremental distance from the linear array. I only need numbers from half of the sphere from one gore to generate my flattened pattern. I just do a curve through points to get my finished gore shape. Any pointers?
Please upload your gh file!

Cool! I got it to work however it doesn’t account for the doubly curved surfaces. I guess I need to look into working with lists and data sets more. Thanks!
