I’m trying to design a script which will enable me to study deployable scissor mechanisms, I am using a definition by @Joseph_Oster as a starting point (requires Anenome). I have studied a few papers describing the geometry of SSM’s but am currently having a hard time trying to figure out how reverse engineer to close the system to allow me to blend between a fully open and fully deployed structure. Any help would be appreciated - I think i’m just lacking the required mathematical knowledge to reverse engineer the initial set up.
File attached, thanks for any help.PolarScissorUnitsQuestion.gh (21.9 KB)
Here is another attempt however the result is incorrect due to the fact that I have not set up the input angle inputs in a way that they are influenced correctly by changing the parameter t - and therefore as the system closes the point of intersection of the initial members also changes.
