I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to use a generative design process to create 3D printable textiles which follow the shape of a 3D scan or otherwise designated shape ?
The project at hand is as follows:
I have a 3D scan of a human torso. I have rebuilt a simplified version of this torso as a surface In rhino using the curve network command. I would now like to use some kind of generative design workflow to create different pattern iterations of “3d fabric” covering a specific designated area of this body scan, for example the midriff. I have attached an image below to illustrate this point only on a hand shape. What would be the best way of going about this project ?
From the research I have done it seems grasshopper and parakeet are tools for generative design. However I am open to suggestions for any other software or combination of softwares which you think would work better.
I am quite overwhelmed by this generative design technology concept but am very curious to try it. Any and all advice on how to move forward would be greatly appreciated!
