Tensile Mesh


I am trying to create a tensile mesh similar to what I’ve done here but now the gaps are smaller and arranged differently.

I pretty much used the same scrip yet for some reason I ended up with the mesh forming these towers. Any thoughts on what might be causing that? I am guessing there is something wrong with the way I applied the forces but I’m not sure.

You can find the scrip here: tensile mesh.gh (29.0 KB)

Thank you so much!!

Hi @IK2

I see you have only the naked edges (E1) connected to the Length goals. You need tension in the internal edges if you want the mesh to change shape.

Ohh yeah, you are right. I didn’t see that. Now it works. Thank you so much!!

I’ve made some changes in order to get circular extrusions and a more stretched tensile structure with evenly distributed anchor points. so you can have a look…

That is brilliant. Looks way more refined. Thank you!!
