Multi Image

The multiImage script is the first pass at a script which evaluates multiple images and derives pathways through this data.

Image Reader

cylinder sethorizontal plate set
This is the first set of a developing series of image reading scripts designed to bridge hand sketching with three dimensional modeling. Inspired by a project by Onur Gun, the manifestation of form from relative image intensities, begins to open rapid spatial development.

Surface Median Tool

This tool derives the median surface from a selected set of surfaces and places it at the origin point of a scene. As an early version of a tool it is interesting, but the functional value is still undetermined and very much open to suggestion.

sweepTool_ v1.1

This version of the sweep tool allows for multiple selection of rails and multiple selection of profiles. Initial rotation of profiles will loop until desired rotation angle is specified.

Blend Tool now in 3d (updated)

Ever wanted to use the Illustrator blend tool in Rhino, but just too lazy to do all the leg work to simulate it. After all extracting wireframes is so tedious. Well now you may not have to... if it works?

basic multisweep

The multiSweep script allows for the selection of multiple rails and a profile from which the profile's relative planar orientation is determined and automatically aligned perpendicular to each rail. The interface and options for this version are very basic and later versions will become much more robust. However its a nice tool to have around.

Surface Grid 6pack

This script produces six options for surface subdivision within Rhino. It provides a curveset as an output which can be used for module population.

Surface Morpher

Well, its not exactly Maya, but this script allows the user to morph between surfaces at a given instance. Please post suggestions for what you would like it to be able to do... or what its not doing quite right.

FARM typologies

Three of the basic typologies of the redistributed farm package. Derived from minimizing material and maximizing environmental interaction by responding to an plan based adaptation of linear farming logics.
The Earth Enrichers create restorative systems behaving as natural water filters, retaining pools for local collection, and channels for connection to aqueduct networks.
Greenhouse modules provide the ability for continual interlinking between units, minimizing exterior structural members and free up the ground plane for restorative planting with minimal earth contact planting surfaces.
Hydroponics structures look to maximize internal water retainment and cycling while freeing up the ground plane for restorative planting and maximizing solar coverage. Domicile units allow for cross circulation through the underlying strand based system, providing a rapid assembly interchangeable site cast panel system.
