Hi there. I’m working on a project for my university, and I have come to a problem I couldn’t solve.
I’ve got an structure made of wood ribs, along with connectors within them.
After this, I want to cover it with fabric, and for that I’m using kangaroo (first time using it), to make a surface affected by gravity, but when it comes to choose the anchor points that are going to hold the fabric, I don’t know how to choose a brep to hold it instead of just points on it.
What I’m aiming to is something like this video: https://vimeo.com/album/199263/video/51169678
And all I got so far is something like this:
I did it by choosing some points on the structure, lifting them a few cm and making them the anchors, along with some others on the ground. But now I want the piece of fabric to be fitted on the structure, tense on the upper part, and I think I can only do that by making the upper part of the structure the “anchor”, or something like that, I don’t know.
Here’s a pic of the structure I’m trying to cover
Thanks for all the replies, if somebody needs more information or the grasshopper file I would be glad to upload it
