thank you so much @HS_Kim!

Some of the curves along the edges are overlapped which causes problems connecting them.

Hi @HS_Kim and @Joseph_Oster , is it possible to create a surface and extrude those line we connected? can you please help me. please refer to image. thanks

You are running into all sorts of challenges :slight_smile:

The grid you provided isn’t nicely aligned.

Generally it would be better to start with a surface, divide it and create a clean network of lines.

The beams can be done in many ways. I trimmed the lines and used two planes per beam, resulting in a straight but twisted beam for those that are at an angle. You might want a curved beam without twist.

The solution is dependent on a lot of decisions. Maybe you want as many beams as possible to be equal, or all possible nodes equal?

Thank you very much @martinsiegrist for the solution you made. Yes you are right. Actually i want all my nodes to be equal as possible. But sometimes. The geometry creates some clashing. Then i starting adjusting some nodes into bigger one.

Here’s another approach which would work nicely with sheet metal connectors.
