Join Walter Zesk for an in-depth discussion in this video Roof surface, part of Grasshopper: Generative Design for Architecture.
- [Instructor] I have my exercise file open already. … We're in the process of implementing … the parametric model we mapped out … with our diagram in Grasshopper. … We've added site constraints, … and we've built out the logic for our sine wave. … Now we'll combine the two to create a roof surface. … So I'm going to grab my site constraints, … and I'll bring them over here … so I can use them more easily. … I'm going to extract the curve, … so I'll go Params, Curve, from the site context, … so this output is a curve defining … the boundary of the space. … I'm going to use that to trim back … the surface that I've created. … So to find that component, I'm going to double-click, … we'll do Project to project a curve onto a surface, … we'll connect the curve, connect the surface, … and now we're going to use this projected curve … to cut this surface, cut off the extra surface … that's intersecting with the buildings. … In order to do that I'll use Surface Split, … so I'll double-click again, type in surface split, …
