I am a rookie looking to generate a method of simulating the bending geometry of strips, by simplifying them into segmented and triangulated wireframes.
What I would like to happen, is that from a fixed “spine”, these strips fell onto the brep and if all the connected lines remained fixed length, would be forced to take a certain “path” around the brep.
Although the file I am providing shows a grasshopper generated set of strips, this is not a priority and it would be okay if this was something I generated manually, to get the correct arrangement regarding lines vs points to use in kangaroo, as I am not experienced enough to have total control over this in GH atm.
I also understand this is likely out of my league for now, but would appreciate any guidance on how to create wireframes where the segments are fixed length. Simple directional guidance appreciated!
Thanks for your time, I have attached a a jpg of the test setup I was making, with the GH file.
