panel-grid

#1

Hi all,
so i have this grid from which i need to create internal “panel”

Im using a Curve Offset to create the offset (i need to control that) but… there’s always a but
The outside “panels” need to have the “edge” side not offseted (#1,2,3 & 4) in this capture

Any help to logically go about it would be great

s the definition

A possible solution that quickly comes in mind would be to offset the outer boundary first. You can use a peripheral strip for instance:


Here I used Surface.ByPatchPolyCurves from Chynamo, which consists essentially in this code:

Still not getting where we are headed :frowning:
I need to use the outer point when the “panel” is touching the outer edge

Do you mean like this?

If so, offsetting first and last grid curves in both directions should do what you want:

@Daniel_Hurtubise Start by first offsetting the boundary rectangle outwards.

0 - g. … very damn smart :slight_smile:
Thanks a lot… again


#8

Why didn’t you answer the same proposal that I did then? Should I have needed to use Node to Code and to send you the dyn to get an answer?


#9

Oh sorry, didnt mean to be rude. They are both achieveing the result your right

And I was too in return, but I am very pleased that you got what you need :slightly_smiling_face:

@Yna_Db Off topic How do you keep your Node connections and line straight and perpendicular like in this image? :love_you_gesture:
