HYPAR in Kangaroo

Hi every one,

I have a question about the Kangaroo physical engine. Is it possible to produce hyperbolic parabolids like those attached in the Kangaroo? I want to perform a form finding process.

Thanks in advance,

With Kangaroo, you can’t really get exact hyperbolic paraboloids easily, only approximations.

See this tutorial

@Alim_Battal1 you might also want to look at tutorials for minimal surfaces in kangaroo, like this one

Note that a hyperbolic paraboloid is not a minimal surface. You do not need any form finding to model one as it can be created trivially in Rhino with a surface from 4 corner points.

The minimal surface on a skew quadrilateral is subtly different (and not a ruled surface like the hypar), and for this it does make sense to use Kangaroo.


Thank you for that. I wonder if there is a way to model the attached shape without using a Kangaroo.
