5- Parametric Curve Attractor

In this video tutorial, I will explain how you can use u,v coordinate system to produce a parametric curve on a surface and use it as an attractor to affect the frames of triangular panels.

    More tutorials like this should happen more often. The possibilities for further developing this one are almost endless. This generalizes a lot of topics in a single lesson.

    Outstanding tutorial.

    What if you have a “”Polysurface””,and not a ‘Surface’ to apply the LunchBox-plugin and…
    finally go to Panelling-Attractor exercise.
    How to resolve that ?
    Thanks your help…………….

    Hi Claudio
    Surfaces are singular and continues which means you can do everything that you could done on 2d space inside rhino you’ll be to do on the surface (instead of x and y , you have U and V) but Polysurface are made from surfaces so you cannot define a point on a Polysurface with just 2 value (like x and y), even though you can have access to each individual surface on a polysurface but aligning pattern on edges would be very difficult .
    So I think easiest solution is that you can work on unfolded (expanded) version of your polysurface and then rebuild the generated pattern on the polysurface
