Hey there, this is my first time using Grasshopper.
I am attempting to create a miniature succulent pot, and I would like to create it using a lattice structure. It is a basic cylinder with a cut out for the plant to fit into it.
When I use the uniform DS I select my basic cylinder model with the extruded hole ( yes they are joined and is one polysurface ) as the BREP input, and it works fairly well, although the ends of the struts arn’t fully closed and in the mesh report it says invalid. I am wondering how I get my mesh to be valid.
Not sure if i just have to make my model slightly bigger, or if I need to adjust my values for the inputs. Any help or guidance would be appreciated it. If you think this would be easier in Weaverbird or cocoon, please let me know.
Thank you, I have done this and am tweaking around some of the values to see what everything does. I am looking to 3D print this either FDM or SLA as I have access to both, but there are too many struts/lattices and they are too thin.
When I get the desired amount, they are no longer connected and the report is showing as an invalid mesh now. Do you have any tips for creating something similar to what I am looking to print?
Hi, when I download the script, why is the curve to volume function red? and where does this mesh body fit into the lattice script? I can’t get the body with the lattice which you posted above!! thanks
