I can not seem to get my head around this problem. I have a facade that already broken down into panels by the architects. I need to generate a Voronoi type pattern for the facade panels, That’s not a problem.
Here is the problem. For the graphics department to give me an image that runs across all the facades I need an unrolled copy of the facade. so that they can map it and make sure it is correctly aligned.
apart from the workflow to get all of this done (open for suggestions) can someone please help me with a script to unroll the panels to the XY plane and keep their relation to each other.
The sample in the file attached was done manually in rhino with make2d but that still only gives one side elevation and won’t help for the curved parts on the facade. 2019_07_10_Panels Srf Extraction.gh (34.0 KB)Facade Layflat.3dm (3.1 MB)
While I’m at it. what do you think would be best,
A: Do the Voronoi on the individual elevations as a whole, like east and west and north and south all separate and then do a boolean to get the panels - this way the image for sampling does not have to be broken in to panel size images. but the processing might kill the pc.
B: Break the images down and sample each panel individually. This will take some coordination but I was hoping to be able to do it with a python script. the problem being the image sampler component does not allow for file path input(that I know of) and I am nowhere near competent enough to script a images sampler to do that
any help will be appreciated
