I’m very new to Grasshopper and can’t seem to get anything to work…
What I’m looking to do is to apply the panel/tiles I’ve created to a dome surface. I have tried using paneling tools in Rhino (ptGridSurfaceDomainNumber + PtConverttoDiamonGrid + ptOrienttoGrid using the tile I’ve created) but Rhino just crashes.
In Grasshopper I don’t even know where to begin… I would like to be able to control size, angle/rotation and overlap of the tiles preferably I would want to create some kind of gradient going from bigger to smaller tiles towards the top of the dome.
I’ve attached images of what I want to do as well as my Rhino model w. dome + tiles and the GH script for dome as well as parametric paneling as far as I’ve gotten.
Any ideas on where to start or tutorials to look at are welcome!
