My approach on that is, that im offseting only once and connect the corner points by an SDL line. If they are intersecting i make a 3-Point surface, else i’m doing a Sweep2. In the end I merge everything together (3-Point Surface, Sweep2 and a Boundry Surface of the base curve) and make a boundry volume which fails in some cases.
My other proplem are the second set of corner point for the SDL. In some cases there is one too much or they are not sorted correctly( I already tried “Sort along Curve”).
I attached the script and a few examples of the base curves. I hope somebody can help me.
Hi, lately I been using Laurent’s component for creating a Medial Axis “Roof”, I been having problems when changing the base curve, sometimes the component fails and shutsdown Rhino, I was wondering if some one knows why that happens, I can only imagine that it have to do with Rhino’s memory, or that the script keeps on running in a loop.
I been using it for creating a straight skeleton from a polygon, I have found other components that do the straight skeleton algorithm but they all seem to fail in a similar way, the Laurent one for me know is the best way to do that calculation, it would be nice to have a version of the Laurent’s component that only do the the skeleton part without creating the surface. Thanks
Hey Laurent, Amazing script!
I am pretty new in grasshopper so I might be asking a basic question.
But is there a way (on either scripts) to make the height of the dune a permanent parameter and the angel would change according to the width of the dune?
Thank you very much Seghier,
Its getting closer but I need the angel between the slops and the ground to change. I am basically trying to make walls (barriers) out of sand dunes, so the height of the dune would be the same, but the angle of the slops should be affected by the thickness of the wall…
Thx for sharing this script - great help!
I tested it on Rhino 6 & 7 - unfortunately, there seams to be a problem using it on Rhino 7 (looks like there is a problem with selecting the right trimmed sides (for both the multi and non multicurve version I found here).
edit: might be that it worked yesterday - did an Rhino 7 update today.
