Twisted Box Mesh Boolean

In this Pufferfish Grasshopper tutorial, we will use the “Twisted Box Array” combined with “Mesh Boolean Twisted Boxes” to convert any mesh into a series of boxes and then use the Weaverbird Plugin to convert them into frames and windows.

    Can we remove the inner boxes and only keep the outer boxes

      You can Boolean Union the Boxes for example

    Is there any way to set the size of the box to a desired size (i.e. cover the mesh in 1″x1″x1″ boxes) instead of creating boxes based on a resolution?

      Hi, You need to divide your length by the desired size of the box and give that to the “Steps” input of the “Range”, but since the “Twisted Box Array” component receives division parameters between 0 and 1, this way can only give you approximate accuracy.
