Hey everyone, this is my second post here and I am new to Grasshopper and Rhino. This community has been greatly helpful and I can’t thank you enough.
I am currently researching designing floating cities at Princeton, and so I am trying to calculate Potential Energy surface of floating objects. Here is what I am doing:
I have an object and it gets split by a plane into two parts: lower and upper.
I am interested in the lower sections from which I can calculate potential energy.
@DanielPiker has enormously helped me and he created this network (I only added the Potential energy calculation at the end):

- I am now interested in rotating the object in YZ-plane (call it alpha-rotation) and XZ-plane (call it beta-rotation) and I want to plot a 3D surface in Grasshopper showing:
- Alpha-rotation on the x-axis (vary it from 0 to 180 degrees);
- Beta-rotation on the y-axis (vary it from 0 to 180 degrees);
- Potential Energy on the z-axis (it’s simply the last value in the result).
I tried some methods and it’s not working, so I am still not sure how to do it.
