Creating high quality meshes is an ongoing challenge. The problem is complicated by the fact that there many measures of this quality. For instance, FEA preprocessors have for quite some time now been able to produce meshes composed of very … Read More
Here’s a quick test of simulating the joints between rigid panels. Instructions: Hold right MB and drag to rotate the view Zoom with mousewheel Left Ctrl + Left MB on a panel or joint and it will become a moveable … Read More
While principal curvature lines seem to be currently very popular, they’ve been around in architecture since 1796. Gaspard Monge, a french geometer, proposed the above design for an ellipsoidal vault that could be constructed out of mortarless masonry units. Not only … Read More
Here’s a quick video of the component in action. There’s still a lot of work to be done.
The Studio for Progressive Modelling (SPM) has started development of a couple custom GH components: This one produces a principal curvature line emanating from a point on a surface – lines that are useful for constructing panelizations of freeform surfaces consisting entirely of … Read More
