Simulated fabric covered framework

Does anyone have a workflow suggestion for creating simulated taught fabric covering as found on old aircraft and airships?.

You might find a solution somewhere in this discussion:

Thank you Martin I will check it out.


I guess this is a silly question but what is Kangaroo?.
I’m using Rhino.

Thanks, JP.

It looks like Rhino 8 WIP had a shrink wrap function.
I will check that out as well.


Kangaroo is a Grasshopper native set of components developed by @DanielPiker to do some sort of physical simulations. You can anchor selected vertices / parts, constrain edge lengths, planarity and handle collisions.

ShrinkWrap doesn’t tightly wrap an object like most people would expect but yes, give it a try.
