I was trying to replicate the pattern on the vase as shown on the image. I managed to create the pattern on a 2d grid of regular Hexagons but couldn’t map it on the surface. I then tried to follow a similar approach by dividing the Surface into hexagonal panels, but all sides dimensions were different, so failed to do so. I have attached both the script for reference. Would be great if someone can help me find an alternate approach. Thnx
I think instead of doing it with grasshopper, wouldn’t it be faster to just use ‘Cage edit’ command for this specific case:
- Create Template Pattern
- Copy Multiple times and Bend until it forms a cylinder
- Use CageEdit Command to shape the Vase to anything you like
- Remove Cage
you can always go back to your template pattern and modify the pattern as you wish.
and you can control how many pattern goes in U or V direction by controlling the amount of copy in the cylinder stage.
Thanks so much. This works perfectly.
