Squish parameters for length accuracy


I’m developping a tool using the “squish” command to generate automated cutting patterns for ETFE cushions.
Starting from a mesh resulting of a formfinding process, I then generate the cutting seam lines, and call the squish command, with given parameters.

However, I cannot get to :

  • get the same length on both sides of the same cut line
  • preserve the edge length of the original system boundary line

I found that generating a slighly different formfind could bring me closer distance differences, but with no governing rule.
Is there a way in the Custom settings to actually keep the exact boundary length ?
( we aim for a precision of 1mm, and we are currently between 2 to 5 mm difference)

All the best
