      In order to install paneling tools, you can run the file that you have downloaded or use the “PackageManager” (access through Rhino command-line, then search for PanelingTools to install). By the way you should unblock the file before installation. Right click-> Properties, check unblock box.

    In this lesson I was trying to apply the strategies from the previous exercises in the course by trying to create all the components in grasshopper. I’m having problems with the surface; I used the multiple attractor points strategy to make those lumps, but when I tried to divide that surface with the “Surface Domain Number” tool it created bigger cells around it’s perimeter (you can see the problem in the attached file). I can’t find a way to solve this, can you help me please?

      Hi Santiago,
      Can you please send me your script, I couldn’t find the issue. Maybe there is a problem in Surface domain Component.
