Triangulation



This is something not directly connected to my ongoing thesis project, however, it’s a small project I did during summer to learn rhinoscript. The idea was to develop a parametric under roof, each one uniquely designed for a every space after the customers wishes. A surface, curved or flat, gets divided into two sets of intersecting triangles, which are then unfolded, annotated and laser cut in polypropen plastic. The triangles arrives in a package to the customer who puts it all together with cable ties. These images are from a cardboard concept model.





The scripts might be somewhat buggy, a little bit more work is needed. The biggest problem is to figure out a way to keep the right surfaces after intersecting them.
