when I was trying to use multipipe to model 3d lattice structure in rhino i was confused by the definition of the endoffset parameters in multipipe. Rhino’s Help said it is the distance of the first edge loop away from the node as a multiplier of NodeSize. Then i measured the distance “d” in the figure. it does not match the input in grasshopper.
Does anyone know how exactly the distance of the first edge loop is measured and how it affected the node offset? Does rhino use fillet for the node or what other smooth algorithms does the rhino use in the endoffset parameter? I really need to some information to quantitatively exam the effect of endoffset on the node and structure.
