090731- SHOW ME THE CODE!!!-(RVB) – automatic unroll

julio 31, 2009

unroll

This is another fabrication tool that i wrote almost two years ago for my thesis. So… let´s show the code!!!!

This tool was developed for the automated process of unrolling planar surfaces for fabrication via laser cut or cnc cut. It allows the user to select the surfaces of the model (or polysrf) and make an array of contours with an ID, in the model and the array (for further assembly help). I wrote it for the ribber tool, and added to the MAB FPS and exatect structure scripts.

It´s a very simple, but powerfull tool ,i hope you use it , and again , do whatever the f#$#cK u want. but remember to name the real author of the script.

Video showing the script running, (in spanish).

stay tuned for more SHOW ME THE CODE!!! in escripto…

090730 -SHOW ME THE CODE!!!! (RVB) – attractor function

julio 30, 2009

4

OK, lets show the code!!!..

Function esfera (attr,k,mval,pa,pb,pc,pd,scale,i)

	Dim face
	Dim center
	Dim dist
	Dim esf
	Dim color
	face= rhino.addsrfpt (array(pa,pb,pc,pd))
	center= rhino.SurfaceAreaCentroid(face)

	ReDim dist (ubound(attr))
	Dim ptatr():ReDim ptatr (ubound(attr))

	For k=0 To ubound(attr)
		ptatr(k)= rhino.pointcoordinates(attr(k))
		dist(k)=rhino.Distance(ptatr(k),center(0))
	Next

	mval= rhino.min (dist)
	rhino.Print mval
	esf= rhino.AddSphere (center(0),(mval/scale))
	rhino.ObjectColor esf,rgb(255,i+(mval*5),133)
	rhino.ObjectColor face,rgb(255,i+(mval*5),133)

End Function
According to the recently attactor “fashion/porn” in the digital age (mainly grasshopper), i´m showing one of my first scripts in rhinoscript (2006). it’s an attractor function. Use, do wathever the f#$K!! you want with this function.
this was the core of my MAB-FPS code (https://escripto.wordpress.com/2008/07/01/080630_mab-fps-multi-attractor-based-flat-panel-skin/), a nice script for my thesis. Lee el resto de esta entrada »

090717-playing with the power of python (MAYA)

julio 17, 2009

python

Yesterday i started to play some hours with mel , but i remembered the recomendations of rodrigo culagovski (www.culagovski.net – http://www.parametrica.org) about the benefits and advantages of python. So, i stopped with mel and put my hands into python.

090711-parametric bridge – Thesis Final project-

julio 11, 2009

01

Some images from my final project for my master degree thesis. its a parametric bridge with a parametric skin – (hexatect). All the project it´s defined by scripting (rhinoscript) and some specific grasshopper definitions (vb.net) .

090427- hexatect (WIP) – Digital Project

abril 27, 2009

hexatect

Some hexatect (hexagon skin + ecotect analisis) stuff, now in digital project. The information from the txt file (analisis data from ecotect), works really great.

hexatect4

Really like Digital Project/catia, for real parametric design. the scripting replication of parametric componentes in a surface by vba, represent a great tool for customized architecture.

090426 – Flat Hexagon Skin -digital project

abril 26, 2009

hexa3hexa

This is the hexagon system i´ve been working since last year, now, scripted and modelled in Digital Project.

hexa2

All the hexagons are flat.

hexatect in digital project coming soon!!….

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.

Im working on the new component for the assemblage of the structure. I think this desing it´s much better than a simple triangle… the system still works amazingly good. Lee el resto de esta entrada »
