I’m currently in the middle of a ‘virtual field season’ with the American Excavations Samothrace. I’ve been using rhino for a long time, but I’m very rusty with GH.
In our database we have the find spots and general dimensions of the nearly 1800 blocks that belong to the ancient Stoa on Samothrace. I’ve rigged up a component to plot the coordinates of the find spots in relation to the excavated foundations. I have also added a component that builds the blocks corresponding to their find spots.
I’ve attached a screenshot of the 622 wall blocks (not including architrave, frieze, or cornice.) What I’d like to do is add a random rotation to each block in x,y,z to make a visualization imagining the wall as it would have looked recently collapsed.
This is well beyond my skill set, and I am wondering if any GH experts out there have suggestions. Should I try to do something like this Kangaroo? I don’t want any of the block geometries to intersect.
I’d then like to add these ‘fallen’ blocks back to my ghosted reconstruction model.
Thanks in advance!
