Space Frame

In this Lunchbox Grasshopper Tutorial, we will model a space frame structure by defining a freeform surface. Then we will project it onto the ground and use the lunchbox “space truss structure 2” to model the lines. We will also use some techniques to find the right length of the pipes.

    Hello! What can I use instead of the Pipe component if I need the structure to have rectangular and not cylindrical spouts?

      Hi! you can use “Sweep” component and define a rectangle as a section and you have to put the section perpendicular to the rail.
      The faster solution would be Sweep component from Heteroptera plugin.
