Using squish command in Rhino gives a result which is not good for me but I can’t succeed to understand if I’m using it in a proper manner. the 2D surfaces are smaller than I’ve expected
The options which I’ve used are: ( SplitSeams=No PreserveBoundary=Yes Deformation=StretchOnly Material=Floppy Outside=Up Decorate=No )
Also I would like squish command in Grasshopper. I’ve tried some examples from
an old Grasshopper topic [ https://bit.ly/2GEu7dZ ] but without success.
Any help will be appreciated!
Thank you in advance,
oh, you can ignore that, it was just to make a boundary around the flattened mesh and it fails occasionally - the mesh you want is in the ‘orient’ component, which you must ‘preview’ so it’s visible, and hit the reset button on kangaroo to re-simulate
also bear in mind this was done for one of the two surfaces only, as a start, though you can input the other side (surface) of the last separately or update the file to flatten both if you deem it adequate
It works for one side [the blue one] but for the other doesn’t work!
There is another technical problem: In the first attachment I didn’t included the lines from the 3D surface which is defining the upper pieces! This because the Squish command ask for selecting them and is flattening them in the same time. What do you think? Shoe last squish.3dm (1.0 MB)
Now it works for both sides! I don’t know what are the ghost surfaces - sorry if this was the problem-I’ll try to understand!
Each surface is containing some curves which is defining the 3D pieces. These should be flattened together with the surfaces in order to build the 2D upper’s pieces [hope the attached images are clear - I’ve used Squish command to obtain them which I’m sure is not a new news for you!!] How cand be done this with GH?
I’m not sure if is accurate [or how much!]!
2D curves seems to be a projection of 3D curves on the flattened surface, which is not correct! A curve is not flattened [see the yellow curve]!
I’ve to understand the process, to play a little with it and to compare with some real shoe last flattened surfaces [including with those from Rhino-squish command] in order to see how accurate is!
Seems to be promising and I’ll provide a feedback here!
Anyway, any new idea or improvement is very appreciated and helpful!
