Hi, I am a beginner with GH and it is my first time here, so please be patient.
Attached you can find some meshes that are disconnected from each other. I am looking for a way to get a continuous surface/ mesh lying over the existing meshes while kind of “drape”/ bridge such disconnected edges using grasshopper, something like the sketch:
The idea of the request would be to design a plate able to perfectly fit and overlap such meshes while bridging the edges gaps, allowing to literally connect them with a designed plate with screws.
I am not sure if I would need to use some kangaroo2 definitions like the one presented by Daniel Piker here: Kangaroo "drape" collision between two Meshes?) which I tried to use but, maybe because my proficiency is quite limited, I couldn’t manage to make it work for me. I have also thought that maybe some components from Mesh+ could help, namely the Span&Bridge (https://grasshopperdocs.com/components/meshplus/spanBridge.html). I gave it a try with the existing sample but I was not successful.
The attached meshes result from a longer GH definition, after trimming some geometry. I am using GH with WIP but saved the file in Rhino 6 format.
