Zollinger Roof structure

Hi guys,

I am trying to create a Zollinger roof structure for my design project using grasshopper, see image below.
Zollinger lamella roof structure

I have tried to recreate this structure but as you can see below, it is not the same.

The lamella pieces should go like this, see below.

Does anyone know how to resolve this? I have attached my grasshopper script below. Thanks.

Hi Wim,

I’ve just had a look at this and it seems very promising.



This isn’t there yet but I believe it takes several steps in the right direction? The ‘U Count’ slider (number of transverse sections) is set to always be odd for a specific reason…

Surface is internalized, no need for Rhino file. Slider in blue group shortens the segments, leaving a small gap between them.

Thanks Joseph,

This has now been solved in another chat, someone used a plugin called NGon which helped to create the correct structure.
