I need your help with creating a porous structure in Grasshopper based on Voronoi tessellation. The structure I have developed so far can be seen in the pictures below, including the corresponding Grasshopper file.
I have got 2 specific questions:
- How can you determine the volume of the structure in order to calculate the percentage of porosity? I used the Volume and the Mass Addition components to determine the mass of the (bounding)box. However, I was unable to do this for the rod-like structure within the box.
- Is it possible to make this structure fully solid in Grasshopper? As can been seen in the picture, the rods are defined by the surfaces but I would like a closed and solid structure in the end. This way I can directly export it as .stl and start 3D printing.
Looking forward to hear some suggestions.
