I am trying to use the polyframe plugin for rhino. I have a bunch of surfaces grouped in an upside down pyramid shape. To get the desired result, I want to stretch the surfaces upwards, but keeping the middle the same:
3. Attach minimal versions of all the relevant files
If you have a gh file you have a question about, attach it to the post. Do not expect that people will recreate a file based on a screen-shot because that’s a lot of pointless work. It’s also a good idea to remove everything non-essential from a gh file. You can use the Internalise Data menu option to cut everything to the left of a parameter.
Ok maybe this was a rhino forum question. I just thought it would be easier to do in grasshopper, but I tried and didn’t get results I was hoping for. Specifically, I did the solidptson command in rhino, tried to collect those points in grasshopper, and move them up, but the points wouldn’t collect as they are only control points. It seems grasshopper doesn’t have a solidpts component so I wasn’t able to proceed.
It seems like the grasshopper definition creates the geometry I created in rhino, but what I want to do is stretch existing geometry contained within a pyramid shape into the sort of shape you made.yet another try.3dm (2.4 MB)
Those are great, and you have spent much more time helping me than I would have expected, but ultimately you are just building the shape with moveable parameters. What I need is something that takes the complex geometry I have, and manipulates it in the way you show. If you look on the rhino file you will see that what I have is a lot of surfaces inside a pyramid shape, so somehow I have to get them all stretched uniformly from a center line to get the right result.
