Lloyd’s Algorithm

Lloyds (1)

  DESCRIPTION This user object runs what is known as Lloyd’s Algorithm, which is a iterative implementation of a Voronoi Solution where each iteration uses the previous iterations area centers as the new seeds for the current iterations solution. The result is a successive evening, or smoothing of cell distributions and aspect ratio. INPUTS / OUTPUTS… Read More

Even Random Distribution

Graphic

This user object component takes a list of objects and randomly distributes them into a user specified number of sets.

Deconstruct EPW

2015-10-29 16_28_51-ALBANY

This user object component takes an Energy Plus Weather (.epw) file path input and deconstructs the tabulated data into lists corresponding to the sample dates.

Divide Curve By Proximity

ProxDiv-Intro2

This component is developed to create a more even aspect ratio for grids by creating points through iteratively sampling proximity to adjacent curves.

Rhino Lights v2

na-Lights_v2-Point

This set of components allows for the manipulation and creation of Rhino light objects from grasshopper.

Field of View

View-01

This view analysis component takes a user specified visual plane, field of view angle, and distance limit to test for view obstruction from input meshes.

Rhino Lights

GH-RH_Lights-00

This set of components allows for the manipulation and creation of Rhino light objects from grasshopper.

Fab Tab Tiles

fabtabquad-04

This component lays out each face of a mesh as a set of tiles on a two dimensional plane adding annotated tabs. If faces are quads a crease line is added between the faces 2nd and 4th vertices to aid in bending.

FabTab Triangular Tiles

FabTab_Triangular_Tiles3

This component triangulates a mesh and lays out each face as a set of tiles on a two dimensional plane adding annotated tabs.

Flow Path

flow_05

This component iteratively samples a surface, mesh, or polysurface to find the most vertical flow path along a geometry.

Geometry Sequential CP

Sequential_CP-Sample-01

This component sequentially finds the closest point from a list of geometry including curves, breps, and meshes

NOAA Solar

011

This component uses a Latitude and Longitude coordinate and GMT offset value with a date and time and returns the sun’s vector at the specified parameters as well as a series of other datapoints at the given sample.

Rhino Sun

Sun_01

  DESCRIPTION This series of components access the sun system in Rhino and allow for control and returning of sun parameters. There are three component types, Rhino Sun Data, which returns the sun system’s current settings, Set Sun, which uses the Latitude / Longitude and Time to set the sun and Set Sun Manual, which… Read More

Offset Two

offset_04

This component uses the same basic setup as the Offset curve component, but returns two curve sets as an output using both a positive and negative distance value consistently returning the shorter and longer curves in two separate outputs.

Mesh Outline

MeshOutline_03

This component projects mesh silhouette polylines to a given plane or view plane.
