    Hello everyone, nice work!
    Is it possible to get this script seperatly from the membership-option? Some one-time purchase-opportunity?

      Hi Jakob, Unfortunately it is not possible.
      I’ll contact you if that plan was available.
      Many Thanks,

      Can you send us a screenshot from your Grasshopper?

    i can’t seem to get the file to work in Rhino 7, not all required extensions seem to want to work

    Here’s what it looks like when I open the script.
    This could be due to some plugins not working properly on my end.

    Managed to fix some plugin issues. Now the only problem is that the spiral shows just as lines, not as a solid object.

      Thank you for sending screenshots, The example file has been replaced. I think the problem was the Mesh Edit implementation on R7.4 package . You may still face a problem with Pufferfish Mesh offset component, in that case you can replace Mesh offset component from Pufferfish with Weaverbird’s Mesh Thicken component.

      Let me know if it works or not.

    Hi Erfan, do you offer tutoring session to go over this script? I’m relatively new to gh and it’s a bit confusing on how I can further customize it to curl in a direction

    • rezae

      I’ll email you about tutoring session.
      customize it to curl in a direction would be great idea! I haven’t thought about that. I think left and the right side of the mechanism shouldn’t be similar anymore.
