I need a little help as I’m not that familiar with Grashopper.
The attached model shows a situation I have to deal with.
There’s a 3 D Scan of an steel wall and I need to arrange window panes, doors and other items in a distance of minimum and maximum glue thickness of 12 to 25 lets say.
The items to be placed are volumes or blocks (in which a defined surface needs have the distance)
I could put each window glass into an block if that helps with Grashopper defintion to simplify.
Or I could extract the needed surfaces from the blocks and volumes.
The Surface Scan could be arranged in a group instead of a block if necessary, but unfortunately the scan consists of many smal surfaces. To create large single surfaces would really take to much time with the overall scale of the project.
The whole project is lot bigger and it seems, that it would the easiest way to check this with grashopper.
All the window panes in the ship shall be on a fair curve in the end.
The evaluation of glue thickness must be done probably window by window or door then.
Sorry, the file is still quite large. Have tried to reduce it from 226 Mb to this…
Thanks for your help !!
