As I said TSplines are dead (in the way that 3dPDF is dead: all good things have the very same future). But the latest R/GH builds have something equivalent (since I work with R5 I can’t recall the name nor what it does).
Note: change your Name/Avatar pic with something respectable. Dare I suggest this proper thing:
Note: even if you install a 32bit build - called Reader DC - that #%#^#% Windows OS (I assume that you have W10 at least) will auto update Reader to a 64bit build (the “latest and greatest” policy etc etc) in a few moments time. Disabling this update - for ever - is rather complex (took me 15 !!! minutes to do it - I hate Windows like my sins).
Only if people fear you … you have some chances in life.
you’ll have to better understand how components works. For example you use the “out” from Daniel Script, you must here use “A”. If you don’t know where is the output plug a panel at the outside, or a geometry component.
Test things on small parts. Now that I have tested Daniel script I saw that it is not good on this kind of topology without Dead Ends because the network will at the end become a point.
So you’ll have to have dead ends.
Yes - my script in that link showed an example of Laplacian smoothing for a graph, which shrinks it if you don’t keep anything fixed. There’s also a version further down that thread showing keeping selected vertices fixed.
If what you have as input is a mesh, it’s a bit different as you can make use of the normals. So to make a graph of the mesh edges that interpolates the original vertices and also stays tangent to it you can do something like this: mesh_edges_interpolatingsmooth.gh (14.0 KB)
Allows the client to inspect anything (animated or not) without having any CAD app. For instance, for these 3 above, doing an animated “walk around” 3dPDF (say with 2K “frames”) is a matter of seconds.
Allows any supplier/consultant/etc to inspect anything (including measurements etc etc) especially when we are talking unusual ways to skin the cat (the norm in contemporary AEC these days). Using the Model Tree the whole assembly/component schema is also clearly exposed.
Think a contemporary on site situation: Chances are that there’s more Pads/Laptops/Workstations around than classic drawings (obviously in A3 format). Some of them contain BIM related stuff. But some … well … contain a zillion 3d master/child details (CAD/BIM Independent) . These - in most of cases - are worth more than the (on paper) constuction details/meta data and the likes … or at least are worth solid gold for providing a clue of the goal(s) of the day.
Well … think that the majority of WOW AEC stuff these days is done in countries where a robust Design contract (thus any claims from your part … etc etc) has no realistic meaning. The only way that you can do things is … well … a steady/happy client.
On the other hand at BID phase (if the project is due to a direct invitation) exposing some prelimirary stuff requires a few seconds (meaning that the paramount various versions/alternatives/etc … require a minute).
Is kinda saying/hoping that Honda is going to do the next Fireblade like the immortal Tadao Baba original: impossible since back then Honda was a Company while now is a Corporation.
