080118_Consulting: polyhedrons frame structure 01


I recently happen to write few codes for Aurel Von Richtofen who is teaching a course/seminar based on rhinoscript at the Knowlton School Of Architecture (Ohio State University) like: select points within closed polygones, points relaxation/explosion, frame along the edge of polygons, etc…
Whenever I have here or there an hour to kill I often happen to re-read a previous code, clean it and often push it slightly further to render few frames – here are some random fast track results…


PROTOCOL (original version):
– for each closed polygons
– for each faces
– extract edges
– add polylines: array(edge start pt, end pt,face centroide)
– offset the curve (on face – toward the centroide)


Many “quick fix” upgrades are possible:
recursive subdivision according to face aera, membrure thickness according to edge length, etc…

i’m a student in aurel’s class and i actually happened upon this blog about a week or so ago trying to gather some ideas for working with similar geometries that we are working with for studiolots of cool stuff here
