Thank you so much for your reply!
I tried your script, but I dont think it is working properly. I used the loft as a surface.
I want the panels to stay the same size (like real roof tiles) but that is not working. Am I doing something wrong?
It is generally not possible to divide a double curved surface into panels with exactly the same size and shape. That’s due to geometry, not any software limitations. There are a few exceptions for special geometry.
This is an idea need development
-from the edges create tween curves with distance equal the width of the tile
-using method of @DanielPiker to create equal segments
-now extrusion of the segments following the curvature of the surface ( i tried that but i don’t find a way to find the right vectors) ; create vectors from the center
the result must be equal tiles and of course there are rotations and spaces between them in V direction
if you find the right vectors you solve the problem
Is it possible to modify this script to create a tiled dome pattern as shown on the copper dome image below? I’m looking to have the tiles"overlap" as oppose to having the valley’s in between the tiles.
I don’t know why paneling tools don’t work properly ; i use lunchbox but the only problem is the triangle faces on the sim curve
you can find solution for that and i am sure there are other solutions in the forums about this pattern
in the defintion you can use flat tiles or use lunchbox surfaces
