Here are some articles on this project, done in Rhino:
Done today I would have taken the scan off the clay model. Then Rhino 7 Quadremesh > SubD. Then Paneling from there. Paneling had a lot to do with value engineering on that project, single curved vs doubly curved panels had to be in the right ratio to meet budget.
The project was done with SmartForm which is available on Food4Rhino
SmartForm is a suite of tools that allow you to rapidly model, analyse and optimise complex freeform shapes found in modern architecture. It has the following components:
- SmartForm: to optimise a complex form in real time
- SmartFormAnalyser: to rapidly analyse a form and panelisation scheme for a variety of parameters like planarity, distortion, etc.
- SmartClustering: an innovative tool that reduces the amount of unique panels and nodes within a given form.
