Final Project

Surface optimization

The goal of the project is the optimization of a surface created from points.
In my design studio, I created a geometry from an agent based script. The geometry is a virtual structure that creates spaces. Galapagos optimization is a great solution to provide an optimal single continuous surface or multiple surfaces in order to enclose the spaces.

The basic idea is to create surfaces from points provided from an initial script, either by making a triangulation with points or using points as a reference to create a mesh surface.

1st Attempt

2nd Attempt

Goal: maximize the number of members in the surface smaller than a certain length (short lines), and minimize the number longer than that certain length (long lines).

Genes: the lower and upper limits (each) of the domain defining the connections between certain points on the lines.

Fitness: the total length of all of the short lines minus the total length of the long lines.
