I have a task that I need to replicate which I am sure is considered basic, but any help on it and the process used would be much appreciated.
I need to reproduce the pattern below for an awning. From what I can see it is essentially the same 5 or 6 shapes replicated over a plane. So how should I approach this? I have had a few attempts, but I am new to this and I think I need the correct starting point. I already have the surface modeled in Revit as a generic roof that I want to apply the pattern to.
Some of the geometry gurus on this forum like @Thomas_Mahon might be able to help, but I am not sure if you can create this kind of irregular/regular pattern with hexagons- they would have to be all the same shape to fit together
I’m starting to come to that realization. Although I have searched ‘irregular hexagons’ and had some success in finding the right pattern (see image). Ultimately it looks like a voronoi node is to be used however.
Similar topics have already been covered. I think you will need to send your first attempts in order to get some help. You will find resources to get started in the forum as well as elsewhere. See these for instance: http://dynamobim.org/forums/topic/tessellation-on-face/
I may need to edit my first post as I now believe the voronoi approach is incorrect. I think what I have here is set patterns (8 different shapes) replicated over a surface. I may need to draw these patterns first using points and polylines then replicate these over a selected surface. I’m really not sure. Maybe this isn’t a ‘solve with dynamo’ issue, although I think its a good exercise for me to learn with if anyone else has any other input.
