(sa00) #1

hi there,
i have a cluster of cubes interacting each other [as in Picture(1)], is there any possible way so i can pexilate the whole form and make it look like something as picture (2)?
i really appreciate your time and effort!
thank you

  1. Create a 3d grid of Points.
  2. Points in breps -> cull outside
  3. Use Points for simple boxes or voxels (many plugins outside there, which provide that function)

If you want it as one outer mesh then use voxel componet from mesh tools:

If you want to fill voxels with any other geometry download pufferfish and the examples. In example folder > workflow folder use example


You have to create a grasshopper forum account, that will let you see the contents of the milkbox group

Try it yourself first. If you fail, I will help you :slight_smile:
Btw try @Michael_Pryor‘s Pufferfish plugin. As he mentioned in the example file is nearly exactly that, what you want

Never was offensive against or even meant to you. But ok, I’m out of that thread.

did you look at the search button in discourse ?
When you need something it is good to get references (serpentine-gallery-pavilion-2013-sou-fujimoto) and search a bit on the web. Hope this link help
