I’m now able to generate members and splices at the ends based on a simple line diagram and everything seems to be working. The bulk of the definition is now simply getting the planes to rotate properly, which serve as … Continue reading
In the latest update, I’ve been able to get steel plates to align through the ends of wood members. The sizing is relative to the member while the plate thickness can be set as well. Currently it seems like a … Continue reading
Joints help to define the form and structural capabilities of structural elements. Our group has worked to create variable plate connectors for application in parametric forms. We have written Grasshopper definitions that recognize the different joint types and produce their … Continue reading
A more direct and clear definition for creating spline plates at variable angles. Still a work in progress.
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 … Continue reading
Here is the update for the internal spline plate connector. I put the definition in our folder on the CAED server Toby.
