I am playing with the diamond panels, where I want to create a diamond pattern in a geometry that I have design before but there is a problem where I only want to select the full completed diamonds within the same volume as the entered geometry.
If any one really has the kind time to help, I would really appreciate it in helping me solving the enigma.
Without Lunchbox I came up with an approximation of diamond panels (white group) and mapped them to one of the two faces (surfaces) of your brep, untrimmed which revealed a single surface wrapping all the way around? I split that surface and culled portions with less than four edges.
There are a couple of issues with the seam but it turned out better than I expected.
Here are some recommendations I have for you.
Your base geometry is an open brep, i.e. poly-surface. In addition, it consists of a trimmed surface. Both are not very good when using the Lunchbox panel.
First, turn your open brep into a single untrimmed surface using Sweep 2.
the diamond panels located on the surface seam were divided into two triangles, which were then combined into a single panel.
I understand the transformation of the open brep but do you know if there is a way to obtain more more interior edge curves from using “open edges”, in order to achieve a more accurate shape from the original geometry?
This is a tediously meticulous effort to cope with the two irregular trimmed “faces” (surfaces) in your original shape. Setting the slider in the purple group (minimum perimeter length) requires human judgement as it will change if the size of the diamonds change.
