I’m currently working on a hexagonal structure with different orders, as illustrated in the figure below. My work is being done in Grasshopper, but I’ve reached a stage where I need to join multiple curves together to form a single polyline. Following this, I aim to offset this polyline to create a certain thickness for the structure. I would greatly appreciate any guidance on how to proceed with these steps or any advice on formulating my approach more effectively.
Thank you in advance for your help!

I see you’re already using Clipper plugin
if you are planning to give the lines a thickness, then I wouldn’t worry too much about trimming them to avoid overlappping, as I guess you might region-them-out more easily using Clipper?
you can go on forever…
by the way, in this file I’m using the Clipper2 plugin (you can find it in

I guess you can also also loop this using Anemone for instance:
@inno Thank you for your help. Your work seems so right, but I’m having a problem with the Grasshopper files. I keep getting error messages about missing plugins, even after I tried downloading them. The same errors pop up every time I open the files. Can you guide me on what to do next?
He is working surely with Rhino 8 and you Rhino 7
use PackageManager to upload Clipper2. Then you can open on Rh7.
Thank you for your assistance. I followed your suggestions and installed the necessary plugins through the package manager, even ensuring I got the manual version to match. However, I’m still facing the same error messages when I open the Grasshopper files. What should I try next?
Update Rhino 7 !! The message means Clipper will work with Rhino version >= 7.35.
I don’t know both the files I have posted work fine in my pc… V7 SR37 (7.37.24004.15001, 2024-01-04)
