i’ve been trying to calculate the y-size of rectangles using remap numbers for a while now and i can’t get the desired result.
The width of the boxes should decrease with increasing distance from the XZ plane.
I appreciate any help ! Please excuse the messy graph.
Do you seriously expect anyone to give you advice based on this image alone?
Try posting your GH file with internalized geometry
(or R6-compatible .3dm file).
Asking questions and getting answers is what this forum is all about. Although people are generally very helpful, there are things you can do to improve your chances of getting good and quick answers. Below you will find some suggestions, but don’t think of them as rules and especially don’t think of them as guarantees.
1. Choose a descriptive title for your post
Don’t title your question Help! or I have a problem or Deadline tonight!, but actually describe the problem you are having.
2. Be s…
3. Attach minimal versions of all the relevant files
sorry, you are right.
I now attached the .gh script.

I believe you get what you asked for by simply flattening the input to
However, instead of
Scale NU, Orient and extrude in ‘X’ direction, I wonder if what you really want is to create the rectangles with a remapped ‘X’ dimension and extrude in surface normal direction?
Thank you! Flattening the input to Bounds was exactly what I was missing!
The extrusion in X direction is right for my purposes.
The last thing I am struggling with is, I would like to align the vertical “rectangles-rows” parallel to the z axis, but since they are aligned by the uv curves, I have a hard time adjusting them. Do you have any tips for this?
Thank you very much in advance!
Cyan group? Looks messed up to me.
What I was trying to say was the general orientation of the boxes on the surface (as in the attached picture).
BANG! Thats exactly what I meant. Thank you.
I just cant get my head around the “shift paths” function so far…
Connect text panels before and after
PShift to see what it (or any component!) is doing:
Yes already took a look at the data. But my problem was more the logic behind it.
