I am analyzing surfaces that are being panelized for a facade - they have been generated and rebuilt using D-Loft to create seemingly developable surfaces.
- I need to be able to analyze/describe how much of the panelized surface is actually developable to a material tolerance and how much has slight gaussian curvature.
- I need to describe in real world buildable terms the amount of curvature per panel for the single curved unrollable panels (ie it is bent 11 mm over 1000m, etc.)
My model is in meters (please tell me if I should change to mm). If my model is in meters can someone explain to me what the values for gaussian curvature mean and how it relates to real world units and the same for max and min principal curvature values (im assuming this is what describes the actual range of degree of curvature?
