Topological interlocking assemblies

dynamo

#1

Hello,
I’m a newbie to both dynamo and the forum. I’ve used dynamo a couple of times for form & shape-finding purposes but haven’t mastered it quite yet :slight_smile:

I’m now trying to build a grid of solid adaptive tetrahedrons to explore the subject of topological interlocking assemblies (see a picture of a paper model I did a few days ago).
The idea is to start by building a geodesic dome where the tetrahedrons apex form the geodesic dome’s grid, if you know what I mean… Has anyone got an idea of how to start building this using dynamo ? Is solids-boolean operations a good way to start ?

Many thanks and happy holidays from France!!
