Geometric Structures??
« on: May 03, 2017, 01:38:47 PM »
Hello I have been trying to create this geometric structure for dome and various shapes.

I have got this far :o:



How can make railclone with the pattern across any space or sized building in a parametric way? 8)

Thanks,
Tom

Hi,

An easy solution to set-up, but not very precise, would be to use a Clipping area in combination with a Surface, but this way the vertical part needs to be treated separately and it doesn't connect well. Attaching a modified scene showing this approach.

Another possible way would be to use the work-flow described in this thread, but it requires to map UV coordinates carefully. Attaching a sample scene with a quick UV layout, which should be tweaked to equalize deformations better. Hope that helps a bit.

Best regards,

Tom

Hi Michal this is fantastic! thank you

I think in real life they actually build these in sections so this method will work perfect :)
