surface scaling

i've been testing different cladding options for complex geometries, this is a simple hexagonal script applied to the base surface. the hexagon cell is lofted to a single point which creates a very nice scale effect on the surface.

surface tesselation

i've been working on tessellating complex surfaces with flat panels. in order to achieve fixed seams triangulation seems to be the obvious choice so focus can be applied on the design of the reveal between panels. this script plots a grid of points on the surface, draws a polyline through 3 points, rounds the edges of the polyline, and then creates the panel surface.

folded surface cladding

here are a few images of a cladding system composed of a folded cellular arrangement.
