Ye ole Rib Maker

Well, I finally made one. Ive been putting it off for a while, because so many of them already exist, but it provided the opportunity to look at information sorting in a more streamlined pattern. This Rib fabrication Rhino script allows the user to select a surface, input the row and column count, specify the rib dimensions, then sit back, have a coffee and let the computer do the work. Several curve splitting scripts related to the development of this script will be posted shortly. In the meantime, enjoy and post any feedback.

Trianglulate Tile 3 Pack

This Rhino Script triangulates a surface with three pattern options

Pattern Types:
[A][A] | [A][B] | [A][B]
[A][A] | [A][B] | [B][A]
typ.0 _typ.1 _typ.2

This version of the script lays out the resulting triangular faces in a tiled grid with numbered tabs which allow for rapid reconstruction. To assemble simply match up tab numbers.
