Timber Gridshell.
Finally, some tech results using SU and Artlantis.

the previous gallery project used a timber gridshell to create those subtle undulations - so here is a little 4 hour attempt - it's pretty damn TECH:

you really have to think about all the geometry and logical steps you need to take to get the desired form.

NUTS!@£%

i layed out the project so it is easy to follow the steps taken in order to get the final result. PEEP this:

1. define your undulation by assigning grid and 'smooving'

2. duplicate form Xmm above original = create DEPTH

3. draw up desired GRID [[can be orthogonal or diagonal - whatever] grid must have thickness if you want thickness [in x, y] for the gridshell [i.e. made out of wood]

4. immerse object inside the grid and 'intersect with model'
[planes will cut the undulations at intersection leaving the lines on its surface when the grid planes are deleted]

5. delete planes and CLOSE all end points of the two undulations [join the newly drawn lines on each undulation together on the Z [blue] axis.

6. delete square surfaces of the undulation = BING! timber gridshell.

TRASH....

Having a MAJOR file check right now.... managed to delete 7GBs of stuff just sitting there on my mac...
now i can install vectorworks 12 and see how compatible it is with SU and ArtLantis.

but i reallllly can't be arsed to do it!

BRaap.

oh yeah had to upload this so i could then delete it from my HD to make more SPACE. [that's right...even 500k jpgs have to go!]
