i got some problems with my scissor grid.
I created a double curved surface and now i want to translate it into a foldable grid.
The problem here is that the scissor mechanism does not overlap everywhere, because the surface is oriented differently depending on the starting point.
In addition these scissor elements shouldn’t be divided in the middle to reach more stability.
I already tried to use curve/sphere packing but I didn’t get the desired result.
I would like to animate the resulting scissor grid by using kangaroo but i don’t know how to make the whole system dependent on one module as I show in the picture below.
The intersections and length of the scissor elements should remain the same and not be divided.
I hope someone can help me with my problems.
Thanks in advance!
