when I do architectural layouts for floors, I often start with areas which are required for certain functions e.g. office space 1000 qm, storage 3000 qm, assembly 5000 qm etc.
So at the start I sometimes draw some rectangles representing the area of the necessary rooms and I start arranging them , modify them to help me find a working layout.
What I would find really helpful would be a possibility to define the area of a rectangle, rhino would then draw a square which can be edited by the user but would maintain its area. So if I would eg. have a square 10mX10m and I would scale one side to 4m, rhino would automatically change the other side to 25m, so that I would end up with a 4mX25m square wich would still equal 100qm.
This could also work for existing rectangles “make area constant” or for volumes.
to avoid super narrow shapes when the one side is coming close to 0 we should be able to define a custom threshold e.g. 1m .
Is this possible ?
