How to place geometry on a surface

Hi guys,

i am relative new to grasshopper and i am struggeling at the moment.
I want to project the geometry in the Rhino file on to the target surface, but i have no clue how to do that.
Does anybody have an idea how i can achieve that?!

Best regards and thank you.

Hey Malte,

Try these tutorials.


Thanks for the tutorials, but it doesnt create a bending on the surface. It creates the geometry in the points of the surface. I was looking for a method to get that geometry flowing and forming attached to the surface.

Thats what i got…

Use the Sporph component found in Transform > Morph.

Thank you, can you tell me a component to create the UV parameter for P0 and P1?

They are just points at the corner of each surface to determine morphing orientation.

Thank u very much, it worked. I used the divide srf tool to get the points.

I think you mis understand. You need only one point for the target and one for the base. This point specifies the corner of the target surface and the corner of the base surface so the component knows how to morph.

Yes, i misunderstood. I took the points and it works as well.

Many thanks. :slight_smile:

What you are doing in your screenshot is going to generate a lot of unnecessary duplicate geometry.
