Based off of the midaregami + knotting technique of weaving, we are currently developing a rhino vb script that implements this strategy for our stuctural steel exoskeleton.

‘select a surface strsurface = Rhino.GetObject(“select a surface”)
‘directional input ptBase = Rhino.GetPoint(” select the base point “)
‘enter radius of pipes radius = Rhino.GetReal(“enter radius”); Rhino.AddCircle (arrPlane, dblRadius)
‘declare primary variables dim
‘# of divisions along a surface Dim udiv, vdiv udiv=x, vdiv=x
‘declare secondary variables dim
‘capture the domain of the surface Rhino.SurfaceDomain (strObject, intDirection)
‘nested loop ((i,j))
‘evaluate surface Rhino.EvaluateSurface (strObject, arrParameter)
‘store array arrpts((i,j))
‘collection of two points
‘create curve along the surface Rhino.AddInterpCrvOnSrfUV (strObject, arrPoints)
‘create circles perpendicular to surface Rhino.CurvePerpFrame (strObject, dblParameter)
‘loft circles or sweept curve along surface Rhino.AddLoftSrf (arrObjects [, arrStartPt [, arrEndPt [, intType [, intStyle [, nValue [, blnClosed]]]]]])
‘weave curves, 0,1,0,1,0,1…
‘find points of intersection at curves Rhino.CurveCurveIntersection (strObject1 [, strObject2 [, dblTolerance]])
‘add torus at intersection Rhino.AddTorus(arrBase, dblMajorRadius, dblMinorRadius [, arrDirection])
