very excited that the laser-cut screen arrived on site today. the veil house is completed in one day! when the screen is installed. fingers crossed that the 1870′s building envelope is aligned enough that the builders can install without too much packing out of the bowed walls. (more…)

another particle test from within grasshopper – this script is more directly exploring the displayPipeline and grasshopper’s potential for colour and line weights from within VB components. still some issues with clearing the displayConduit on update but a call can be made to either pause or capture every frame before disposing…
we’re now looking to further develop auto-organizational systems + network structures (via particles and chains) and will start posting our grasshopper definitions for public exploration by sometime next week.
another rhinoScript to grasshopper VB translation that takes a mesh object and recursively subdivides into child mesh faces with rotation, generation and mutation (optional). gets pretty interesting when selecting a number of mesh faces with the original before varying the rotational and mutation values.
we’re developing the script further to constrain the geometry to set volumes. (more…)
here’s a very simple VB script which threads alternating pointSets. the degree of rotation and scale are also affected by a sample point included in the rhino file. we’re going to further develop the code to include zones of influence to alternate the thread pattern.
the definition references an infinite amount of entry curve directions, matching them up to exit curves with controlled tangencies to create blended networks.
