Pluto Wall Build
Thanks for your time. Hope you enjoyed the album.
This is what started it all. We used this image as a background bitmap to generate variation across the wall.
Using a program called Grasshopper, a plug-in for Rhino, we created an algorithm to generate the cut files for the wall assembly. We can tinker around with the parameters until we generate something that we are happy with. Here’s the walk through in the next few images.
Cull the points based on the location and brightness of the point. The brighter the spot on the image, the greater the more points will be retained.
Connect the points using a Delaunay triangulation algorithm. Basically, it minimizes the total angles between points to form triangular connections.
