Join Walter Zesk for an in-depth discussion in this video Sine surface points, part of Grasshopper: Generative Design for Architecture.
So we've diagrammed out our parametric model. … Now we'll begin implementing within Grasshopper. … The first two things to build … are a Sine Wave surface logic … and the site constraints. … I've added the site constraints to the script already. … It's really just the surrounding buildings … and the boundary of the site. … The first thing I want to do is create three sliders. … These sliders are going to be the inputs … that control the input parameters … for our Sine Wave. … The first will be the interval. … The Sine is a periodic function … so we can change that interval … and get a different piece of the Sine Wave … to define the surface. … The next is going to be the translation. … So we can move the Sine Wave logic around … and cut out different pieces of it … for our surface. … And last will be the rotation. … So we can orient the curvature … in different directions on the site. … It's important that we have these three inputs … because we'll hand these off … to our evolutionary solver, the optimizer surface. …
