PRACTICING AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART + ARCHITECTURE ^ COMPUTATION

070714_Utilties_GeometrySplitAsAngleAnalysis



Small utility following on a previous experiment “mapping for tailoring” which would split a surface according to Angle anaylis or curvature analysis…

Update : developpment of a generic Rainbow color gradient function according to a a list of pre-set colors – the function is allocating a color gradient according to the number of colors and the order of the defined colors placed into the list…
next step is to deelopped the blending part…



RVB – PROTOCOL:
– subdivide nurbs surface either as point set or polysurface
– calibrate reference vector
– for each surface/points measure angle vector to normal

Extended option (yet not optimal in terms of speed)
– for each angle contour areas, check if subsurfaces are sharing an edge
– if yes delete both edges
– join left boundaries as “angle contour lines”
– split surface

EXTEND: (ie wikipedia)

CALIBRATION: Calibration refers to the process of determining the relation between the output (or response) of a measuring instrument and the value of the input quantity or attribute, a measurement standard. In non-specialized use, calibration is often regarded as including the process of adjusting the output or indication on a measurement instrument to agree with value of the applied standard, within a specified accuracy. (…) Calibration also can refer to judgments made by a prognosticator, for example, a weather-forecaster who states that “there is an 80% chance of rain today,” if properly calibrated, will say this on precisely 80% of the days during which it rains.

Very cool your work! Thomas

This script is very interesting. The openings of the skin could be dependent from the rays of the sun, creating effects of checked light and screening the inside from the solar radiation.

ooops… this comment was reported to the post:070720_SOM_Rhinoscripting_Class.I’m sorry.

yep – have in mind since a little to informed such arrays with an EcoTech data set… tbc

Ecotect could be interesting for this case, perhaps a script that takes the data from the software Ecotect and change the openings of the skin. I had found a skin that followed these idea to this link: http://cjpeli.iweb.bsu.edu/currently it is in phase of updating.
