Structure Thickness

maybe someone can help me here. I have a structure of origami stars and would like to assign a thickness to them. Does anyone know a solution for this?

Thank you, that’s how I had done it until now. But I would like a straight edge to finish. With this definition it gives slanted ends. Do you know how I get this straight edges?

You could move the clothed point of each star in an averaged normal direction and create a second mesh which will form a closed mesh with the initial star. (244.9 KB)

I split your mesh with the SplitDisjointMesh command and internalised the 391 resulting meshes in the Grasshopper definition.

unrelated but what software do you use to record your screen


Free and open source.

tks bro

On macOS, you can simply use Quicktime. There are also shortcuts for capturing the screen in different ways:

  • capture the entire screen with SHIFT + CMD + 3 and save as a PNG
  • capture a portition of the screen with SHIFT + CMD + 4 and save as a PNG
  • invoke the capture screen menu with different options also for video with SHIFT + CMD + 5
