Thank you, that looks great. Light years better than my attempts!
I’ll need some time now to figure out how your definitions work, and then add the ribs etc.
My goal is to try some cnc fabrication, not yet sure what with, laser cutter, mill, 3d printer…
the complete script is not available. You can recreate the script from what is published (less than 20 components). The only tricky part is to smooth the polylines, it is classical Catmull & Clark for polylines but I don’t know if there is an available script (I don’t give nor sell mine).
Cool you have done it. Did you test Chaikin way ? Yes it is quite simple so it is a bit strange it is not in a plugin. I have no the courage to make plugins for people that complains so much on free stuff.
The main differences between the two subdivision methods are that Chaikin’s algorithm (mauve) cuts corners and doesn’t shrink as much, whereas cubic subdivision (green) preserves a smoothed corner vertex and overall shrinks the curve a little.
thank you! At the moment I have created a surface from the starting circle and splitted the surface with the cells. Is there a topic where someone explains how to measure the min and max radius of the parts? Cheers!
