As an architect with focus on parametric design, I am passionate about exploring Grasshopper tools in the AEC. This is a work-in-progress app with Grasshopper & Lunchbox. The end goal is to configure space truss structure system for any geometry that you upload, and get initial estimation of cost and shaded area.
The Parameters are : Truss depth, radius,U & V divisions and diagonals diameters. The app uses a defined Grasshopper geometry/area for this example.( Uploading other geometries is under development )
Feel free to test the app yourself on github and share your ideas or questions with me. I would be happy to consider them in my progress.
My next steps would be:
- upload and choose between different geometries and estimate cost accordingly.
- toggle button to switch on/off the truss covering and select coloring.
