Donut Fabrication

In this Rhino Grasshopper tutorial, we are going to model a waffle structure from a Torus. First, we are going to study the constraints of geometry, and then we will extract the curves for fabrication.

    I followed the whole thing through, but nothing works past the point sorting phase, because this is how i get my points.

      Hi Anma!

      Sorry I can’t find the cause of problem. We uploaded the script in its entirety, perhaps you can download the script and find out why this problem occurs or you can send me the .gh file (Screen Shot) to let us figure out the problem

    Thank you so much for your tutorial, I really enjoyed it. I made one small changes to the definition: the cutting planes are not planes but 2 different sets of rectangles instead. In this way, there is no need to keep the 2.01 multiplier fixed (so you can play with different proportions) and also you are not forced to have odd number of slices (because the sorting along curve is not necessary anymore, so even if centroids are coincident, there is no need to sort them).
    I attach the file here, if you have time to have a look, it would be nice to have your opinion. Marco

      Hi Marco,
      It sounds great!
      Unfortunately It doesn’t appear here, It might failed while uploading. Please try to send me the script again. I’m curious about it
      Many thanks
