Voronoi or cairo pentagon mesh in Evolute?

#1

Hello!

Is it possible to archieve a surface pattern, which is like an voronoi or cairo pentagon mesh?


Kind regards!

Hi,

example 1:
generating Voronoi diagrams is not available in EvoluteTools. You could use other tools to create planar Voronoi diagrams and map them to your freeform surface using etMeshPatternMapper.

example 2:
You can generate this pattern by using the dual subdivision rule, using a “snub square pattern” as input (which you can generate easily in the plane): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiling_by_regular_polygons
Again, etMeshPatternMapper may be useful to map such a pattern to your freeform surface.
