…Let's explore what we can do, with just a little more work,…using a couple of the surface analysis components we saw earlier.…So in my exercise files, I've made a free form surface in Rhino, and…I'm just using a simple algorithm to generate this form in three basic stages.…So, let's take a look at my definition and see what we've got.…First, I'm acquiring a surface from Rhino then I'm dividing that…surface into subsurfaces.…Then I'm pulling out the vertices from the corner of each subsurface.…Lastly, I'm connecting the diagonal corners of each subsurface with…lines then drawing pipes or cylinders around those lines.…
So let's walk through how to set this up in Grasshopper.…I'm going to go ahead a create a new document here.…So let's do the first step first, and that is dividing a surface into subsurfaces.…So to get a jump start here, I'm going to copy/paste my isotrim set up…from the surface analysis example into my new file.…Now I'll grab a surface parameter from the Params > Geometry Component Panel.…
