Grasshopper or Panneling tools?


(Dave Harbour) #1

Iam doing a project of making a lamp shade on a sphere and wondering if I should use Grasshopper or Panneling tools? Below is the geometry that I want to create.

If it is Grasshopper is there a tutorial or a .gh file that I could hack.

Hi Dave,
It looks like maybe using Rhino will be your best option for you.
If you design a lamp surface that is untrimmed (for example, from revolution), then you can use FlowAlongSrf command to wrap your flat 3D patterns around your surface.
Does that answer your question?
