This is a relatively simple, yet hyper-specific question.
Are there any plugins or features in Rhino or Grasshoppper that allow creation of a geodesic line by defining a start point and an angle? I am aware of the current “Short Path” and “Geodesic” commands that already exist, but I’d like to run a command that gives me results like this: https://vimeo.com/81298059.
I have found examples of this in the past, that have been available, but none of them work with the current version:
The plugin by the David Rutten is what I’m looking for, especially.
I have found a plugin that’s very similar:https://www.food4rhino.com/app/curveonsurface-0,
but it behaves more like a chain of shortpaths, pulled to a surface, and smoothed, which is incredibly buggy.
Any help or assistance is super appreciated, even if we don’t find a working answer.
