Joint Differentiation

I was able to get Grasshopper to distinguish between different joint conditions at a basic level.  The spheres are placeholders to mark a node joint while the rest of the points will be “T” joints.  For now this is as far as I think I’m going to take the differentiation, but future improvements could identify how many lines are intersecting at a point and whether the stresses on the curves based on gravity would be primarily compression, tension, shear, or bending.  The definition is in the dropbox.
