Creating an Editable Surface with Points – Example 4.3

In the Example 4.1 we looked at creating a surface with a Grid of Points in Grasshopper, and in Example 4.2 we looked at creating a Patch surface in Rhino. The problem with using the… Continue reading

Random Topography and Surface Analysis – Example 4.1

Moving on from 2-Dimensional patterns, these next examples show some tips on how to create and analyze surfaces in Grasshopper and in Rhino. Some can be made with control points (think spot elevations… Continue reading
