RC paramteric facade design
« on: August 23, 2017, 02:22:57 PM »
Hello,
I am often asked to design some parametric lasercut facades similar to the images attached.
I found out that "rhino grasshopper" works with attractors to produce these effects.
Is there a similar workflow in RC or FP?

This would be great. ;D
Thanx, Harald

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion. At present RailClone doesn't have something similar to an attractors feature, though it's been suggested before and it's on the wish list. However if the facade is planar like your examples it may be possible to use Forest Pack with the animation features. Here you can see a post that illustrates a similar technique.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Many Thanks,

Paul
