090108- the hexatect(hexagon mesh + ecotect) WIP – (Work in progress)- early tests

enero 8, 2009

ecotect despiece

Here are some images of the hexagon system that im working, this is the skin reactive to insolation (radiation expressed in Watts/hr), the script takes the value from excel and asign it to the aperture parameter of each cell of the skin. so far its working great. some images here.

Insolation analisis of the base surface


The final result of the Hexatect skyn system

  1. As usual….. very interesting.
    Can you explaine to me if the hexagons are planar and what about the technique to create hexagons?
    Have you use this one that you can read at page 57… at link
    Have you in mind to post this script?
    Your research is finalized to some real project?

    hi, thanks for the comment.

    basically the hexagon cell its defined by a basic array, the basic component its defined by three hexagons to make the population in the surface (cell a, cell b and cell c)
    Where matriz is the array of points of a surface_
    cell1= rhino.addpolyline (array(matriz(i,j),matriz(i+1,j),matriz(i+2,j+1),matriz(i+2,j+2),matriz(i+1,j+2),matriz(i,j+1),matriz(i,j)))

    cell2= rhino.addpolyline (array(matriz(i+2,j+1),matriz(i+3,j+1),matriz(i+4,j+2),matriz(i+4,j+3),matriz(i+3,j+3),matriz(i+2,j+2),matriz(i+2,j+1)))

    cell3= rhino.addpolyline (array(matriz(i+1,j+2),matriz(i+2,j+2),matriz(i+3,j+3),matriz(i+3,j+4),matriz(i+2,j+4),matriz(i+1,j+3),matriz(i+1,j+2)))

    i cant publish the script yet because i haven´t finished my thesis (im trying to kill that f$%$#$% thesis this month. then i will publish every code and file of it.

    the hexagons are nor planar, part of my investigation its base on the “how to” build this hexagons by 2d cutting only. richt now im preparing some images of that. but the good thing about this project it´s that every part of the system its made by flat parts. i have written in rhinosctipt about 10 scripts to facilitate all the proces off making laser cutting patterns, parts ID, fabricxation proces, etc etc.

    the project will be finished with some prototipes for my final presentation. and i hope i qill aplly it in some future project. maybe with students of the university. i dont know yet. in the meantime, im all about finishing this thesis that is driving me real mad. hahaha.

    by and thanks for posting!!

      Dear D. Pinochet,

      I saw your work and found it very interesting. I’m working on a model of generation based on multi-form performance. I wonder which technique you used. Thank you,


      • escripto Says:

        hi max, i wrote a scrpt that take the values form ecotect and read them in rhino. it´s a very old script (rhinoscript) from about 3 years ago. now you can find better solutions like GECO for gh.

  3. d pinochet Says:

    and thanks for the link , i didnt know it. its look very interesting. for the hexagons i basically have written 3 scripts. one very similar to the matsys script (basically hexagons made from paper strips but with less code). the second make the structure from 2d cutting and cnc bending. and the third one its the one i have posted the last week with the adaptative joints.

    Amaing work.iTS LOOKING BEAUTIFUL. I am working of same kind of work for my thesis. Can you explain me HOW U DIVIDED THAT MESH IN hEXAGON WITH ECOTECT ANALYSIS. When are you planning to post this script.
    The information provided by you will only use for acadmic purpose. You cam e-mail me on tushki11@gmail.com. i WILL BE GREATFULL TO YOU IF YOU HELP ME WITH THIS, Awaiting for your reply.

    • escripto Says:

      im sorry tushar. but i posted this code once and then i saw the same code in other blog , without the propper credits. this is one example i wont post with the code. but you can see other interesting stuff in the “show me the code section”.

      there are many ways to do the hexanet, its a ismple 2 dim matrix, which through loops with steps for i and j , you can generate the hexa cells.

        Hola Diego,

        ya intenté contactarte hace un tiempo pero no he visto respuesta.
        Aquí puedes ver, en la página 100, que he tomado una de tus imágenes como fondo de la página 100,

        como el colectivo Hexagonista trabaja cno la unión de las realidades física y virtual, hemos contactado con un chileno que viajará desde Ibiza a Chile en octubre, con él te enviaremos un ejemplar físico de la revista, esperamos que te agrade.

        Un saludo Cordial.
        Sr. Mini
