Again, I continue with some simple solutions for Grasshopper. The surface split component gives all possible surfaces sliced with given curves. And it creates “invalid” curves with at least one open edge. I used this to perceive the closed regions within a given complex curve set. Just put “Clean” component to erase the outer invalid surfaces and there remains the closed ones. However this time the question was where to put the circle and what is the radius of it. I used a new component called “Plane Through Shape” and […]


One of the main concepts of a contemporary design geometry studies include “emergent geometries”. We used to ask students explore new shapes out of complex or ruled compositions. Here is a definition in Grasshopper3d to simulate a perceptual process of discovering polygons with selected number of edges within a regular array of shape compositions. The definition can be downloaded here [2011-11-14_emergent]
