I am a new designer using Rhino & grasshopper.
Watching a tutorial I have successfully drawn a geodesic dome. Now, I want to unfold it to see each & every triangle’s vertex & bevelled angle so that I can take the notes of measurements to make a wooden geodesic ball in real life.
Now, what should I do? which components or foods should I use to feed the rhino have what I want as output?
Please, my dear experts of Rhino & Grasshopper help me.
You do not necessarily need Grasshopper to start with this.
Attached is a Rhino file with a chamfered dodecahedron from Polyhedron plugin.
You’ll see the full solid and its unrolled surfaces. This is the most basic “geodesic” ball.
You can also use a “Geodesic Icosahedron Pattern 2” from Polyhedron plugin. I used Grasshopper to extract the face boundaries, created surfaces from those triangles, join them into a brep and finally unrolled the brep in Rhino.
I have plugged in the polyhedron successfully & able to make a different type of geodesic frequencies. But I’m struggling with declaring the measurements I need such as diameter or radius or edge length I can’t do any of this.
I’m trying to follow the given tutorial on food rhino website where I have downloaded the polyhedron plugin.
But no matter how I try can’t define or fine the specific measure command that has been shown here. Please, tell what the stupid wrong mistakes I am doing.
