Anyway, if it is possible, please review my grasshopper file and let me know if I made any mistake or missed some problems.

Thanks! and See you tomorrow :)

]]>It takes so long time to finish running Galapagos and Ecotect and I captured some process. I'm not sure if my definitions are all correct.

Please review and let me know if my definitions are incorrect and I missed some requirements.

I'm so sorry that I have to miss the last class.

I learned a lot about Grasshopper and Galapagos and I really enjoyed the class.

Thank you very much.

]]>As we approach the deadline tomorrow, This thread is for general discussions and questions related to the final submission As you are aware, information on the final submission can be found here

Please follow the format described here.

Some notes:

- You must use
**Vimeo**or**YouTube**to post the video. Please**do not upload video files to this wiki**as space is limited. Going through these sites will also allow you to embed the video file directly to the wiki page. - Final projects must be submitted on time to this wiki (
**no later than Thursday 6:00 PM**). It will be considered late if it is after that point.. - Uless you have already received my pre-approval, all students are expected to attend the
**discussion review at NBBJ.**This is a**key part of your participation.** - I will be selecting certain projects for discussion tomorrow. I will contact you in advance if I have selected your project. Be prepared to share describe your project to the group.

Please post any general questions about the final submission here (Format, schedule, etc)….

]]>to essentially divide program equally amongst a pre designed shape (plan view).

Also looking at the "program.ghx" file i am not sure how to change the desired area quantity there are two panels one on the very far left that can be edited and the other on the far right that states "Desired Area" that can't be edited. I understand how both these definitions work I need help bringing them together. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

It would take long time to run Ecotect and I want to confirm my all definitions are correct before running Ecotect.

Please let me know.

Thank you.

]]>I also tried to apply the ecotect definition to my grasshopper file, butit has same issue with Myboon-weird geometry on Ecotect Screen.. is it ok?…

I wanted to have three different objectives for the optimization of my building; Minimize total facade area, Maximize south facade area, Minimize solar radiance via ecotect analysis. When I run this, it took time forever… I guess it is because of too much slides and definitions are going on this file. How can I develop or refine this more?

how do I generate random but-not-really-random points on a 2D surface by using grasshopper components? i am trying to model a facade skin like the Water Cube pattern… i like the points generated by sphere cloud, but its on a 3D surface…

Thanks.

I built a logic of maximizing south facade area as one of my multi objectives and got some problem when I tried to make polylines as planars(option#1 in the file). Therefore, I used 4point surfaces command(option#2 in the file) and it worked. I don't know why the polylines -planars logic didn't work out.

I uploaded my files.. If you guys have some time, please look at it and give me some clue for this issue.

Thanks!

]]>With that said, here is what I'm attempting to do with this TriGrid…

1. Control the total number of equilateral triangles that will compose/fill a rectangle of defined area. Right now I only have an integer value for number of triangles in the X and Y direction (I don't know how in Grasshopper to even define the area of the rectangle yet (read: my building facade) - but I know what dimensions I want for it, which will need to flex/change so that I can solve for multiple facade areas). So, I'm assuming that one would start with how to define the rectangle/bounding area itself and fill it using the TriGrid component which would be defined/divided up somehow to control each triangle individually.

So, for example, let's say I had a 100' x 75' rectangle and wanted to divide it into only 25 equilateral triangles, but the triangle edges could be of any integer lengths between 1 and 10 so that you wouldn't have this even grid of triangles but a 'random' collection of triangle sizes. Then, run Galapagos and see what the solutions look like and again for multiple 'numbers' of triangles (25, 50, 100, etc)

2. Take the problem above and now suppose that you give priority to only one side of the rectangle and define that only triangles of sizes 5 through 10 can touch that priority edge.

Run this for multiple 'numbers' (sets?) of triangles (25, 50, 100, etc).

3. Take the problem above and define that one triangle of each length 1 through 10 must touch the priority edge. Once again, run this for multiple sets of triangles (25, 50, 100, etc). It would be great to mix this up and say that two triangles of length 5 must touch the edge and four triangles of length 8 must touch the edge, etc.

4. Same idea as above, but add another layer/(fitness?) to those iterations that have the largest (or smallest) triangle at the midpoint (or maybe endpoints) of that priority edge.

5. If I can get to there, I'd like to model four sides concurrently, so that the edge condition between two faces is now the priority. In other words, say that one face is modeled for question #2 (of the above questions) and the other face is modeled for question #4 and the fittest version is the one that has the fewest (or most) triangles on that particular edge condition. I'm content to Bake/Photoshop these 2d rectangles together to make up these scenarios as it might just prove too processor heavy to combine everything into one model. But I think that's the final project right there.

If anyone can spell out just in a sort of (use this component) > (do this/use this component) > (etc) for me I would be really grateful. Thoughts?

]]>I would like to know how to divide only 2 surfaces of the box.

I am thinking of high-rise building consisting of 4 bundled tubes with braces for my final project. Two surfaces of each tube face other tubes and only two surfaces of each tube have braces.

How can I select only 2 surfaces (for example south and east facade) and divide them?
