Greg, Steven, and Valentin used the grasshopper definition to generate three different alternatives each. From the 9 iterations, we narrowed this down to 3 that we are fabricating to place on the simpson strong tie model. From this we will decide which one we will build full scale.
It is important to note that all of these iterations came from a single grasshopper definition. Many curved surface alternatives can be generated from the definition. The definition tests for failure through a curvature circle analysis and uses straight segment laths (by extracting the geodesics from the surface)
