Simple Closest Points Grid

Hi all,

I have several grids of circles from which I extract the center points (around 8500 in total), but I am unable to find a simple solution to use these ecenter points to create a grid (points connecting with a maximum distance of 3.1 units).

Attached is an example of what I’m trying to do (done manually) and the GH & Rhino file.

Appreciate the help, thank you,

This is a strange problem… I finally resorted to SrfSplit, which as you can see, is very slow (1.3 mins.). But it works, eh? (194.0 KB)

If you just want lines, use Proximity 3D with the good max distance. (179.7 KB)

Interesting but different in two ways:

  1. Mine are grouped such that each branch is a collection of nearby grids.
  2. Yours covers the hole where there is no grid, mine doesn’t.



When I replace SrfSplit and use Boundary as you did, I get the same result: (187.7 KB)

@Joseph_Oster , apologies for the late reply, I’ve been using your solution all and it was exactly what I was trying to solve. I will post the result to show what you have helped me solve once I’m done. Much appreciated for your help once again! :grinning:

@laurent_delrieu Thanks for the effort, yours also works! :grinning:

I have yet to understand the implications of the difference between solutions as I have required it for simple step-by-step tasks, but thank you both.

@Joseph_Oster Here’s where you helped me save a day of work, thank you Joseph! :pray:
