Some Simple Tools

Ive been occupied lately working on and cleaning up all the glitches I can find in my old scripts before I officially post them on the new site and haven't had time to develop any significant new tools. So in the mean time I thought id post a few simple time saver rhinoscript tools. Also I would like to open this particular post for comments requesting little time saver tools you may want. I write them, you use them and everybody feels a little more fufilled. Please make any suggestions for any range of tools you may want and Ill do my best. But in the meantime, Enjoy.

First is a simple enough tool, actually it may already be in Rhino and I just missed it but, it connects two curves, closing them into a single polyline, using either a rough equivelent of blend curve or staight connections... or not, its your call, give it a try you'll see what I mean. Its a great time saver for closing offset curves.

And second, a tool developed to expedite fabrication. Each click adds text which counts by a specified increment allowing for quick numbering, with your choice of prefixes.

Spiral and Ripple Objects

A re-adaptation of a rhino script available at which allows the user to select any objects and spiral them about a curve. Version A spirals this collection of objects about a curve as well as scale the object at a set iteration. Version B ripples the objects about a curve as a rotational and scalar cos wave.

Woven Scaffolds

Currently in the form of two independent rhino scripts, these studies are part of a series under development in conjunction with a thesis student at Pratt Institute School of Architecture. Seeking to develop methods of weaving a series of curves.
Option A uses a series of curves, warp and weft, running parallel to the UV directions of a surface, weaving two disparate series of integers as rules for the over/under pattern.
Option B uses a simple repeating over/under pattern, however this curves in this series run diagonally across the surface creating a pseudo diagrid pattern. These scripts represent base scaffolds which I look to experiment with different hybrid methods with greater complexity and higher degrees of refinement.
