Variations for Panelization of the Architectural Geometry

To realize complex freeform surfaces, one has to segment the shape into simpler parts, so-called panels ( Schiftner, N. Baldassini, P. Bo, H. Pottmann, 2008). Various methods to subdivide the geometry have been investigated including quadrilateral, triangular, diamond shaped panels.

Generative Design Through Coding 01

This research offers to transform double-curved surfaces into components generated through algorithms based on McNeel Rhinoceros scripting platform. The extracted points of surfaces are transferred into a text document which can be manipulated by the user. Rhino script works in two stages, in which first the location of the text document is specified and then the components are applied. The intent is to generate a process, in which computational surface is transformed into a component based model.
