Lets say I have a flowing/curved surface and I want to orient a some (large quantity) high density mesh geometry onto it. This mesh is the same for every instance so making it a block would help reduce file size. Is there a way to use grasshopper to orient this mesh as a block? For my purposes, using blocks and being able to affect all instances by editing one instance is very useful, especially after populating the flowing/curved surface.
Along the same line, how do I get the material that has been applied to the mesh to remain on the mesh while in grasshopper, so that the geometry bakes with the material mapped properly?
