Kangaroo (Live Physics Engine) – UMN Digital Design

I will continually explore what pneumatic materials and assembly of them could offer spatially in Brief This creates a network of hanging curves that, when converted into a surface, and mirrored, ultimately forms a catenary shell. First comes the shell a kangagoo vault in this casethen comes the grid.

Here are just a few of the endless possible pattern. Since one-dimensional curves do have an orientation in digital modeling, geodesic curves can be described as the one-dimensional counterpart to plank lines, kanaroo can benefit from the same definition. The result is a series of enormous shells built with an impressively small amount of material.

I was looking into the example files provided by the developer for Kangaroo 0. Cos pz — Math. The spheres at the boundary take the shape of the bounding box hence they are more fully inflated there are more spaces in between spheres and bounding box for expansion. But if you zoom in, it is comprised of a series of woven, one-dimensional wires. This was again achieved with Rhino and Grasshopper. An especially crucial aspect of gridshells is the bracing.

Here are far more complex examples of growth simulations exploring various rules and parameters:. Conic Plank Lines Source: In other words, a TPMS is a surfaces which, through mirroring and rotating in 3D space, can form an infinite labyrinth. Kobe Port Tower — Japan. Submit a new link. Centre Pompidou-Metz — France Gridshells with highly irregular geometry are far more challenging to fabricate.

Page tutorlal Page 2 Next page. My proposal stands as an embodiment of these aspects, creating an area of inclusive participation, a space that can be explored and is only complete when occupied. Structurally speaking, things get much more interesting with kagnaroo curvature.

Each curve looks for the shortest path between each pair without leaving the surfacebut only has access to single curvature. A curve is kangagoo on a plain, broken into segments, then gradually increased in length.

Kangqroo I will proceed to gawk over some of the stunning work by Frei Otto. Boids behaviour with Hoopsnake. Gateway Structure for Brunel University by Minimaforms. They necessarily have zero mean curvature, i. Being able to use straight material means far less labour and waste, which translates to faster, and or cheaper, fabrication.


With the learnings of the modified Miura ori tests in mind, a simple loose hinged cylinder is simulated. While these are some of the earliest space-filling tutoroal to be discovered, they are just a handful of the likely endless different variations that are possible.


This is interesting from the perspective of one with the desire to create a structure that has a predictable surface topography, as well as from a material optimisation standpoint; the target topography can be achieved without the wasteful deep creases of an almost fully developed Miura ori. Mimicking the form of a cloud the easily recognisable form is transformed into Architecture; a sinuous billowing form allowing us to fulfil a childhood dream, walking on clouds.

The use of geodesic curves means that these gridshells can be fabricated using completely straight materialthat only necessitate single curvature.

Grasshoppsr curved surfaced may also be referred to as uniclastic or monoclastic. As previously explored, we know that curves can inhabit, and fill, two-dimensional space.

These curves highlight each dimension of the two-dimensional surface. This community is for professional, student, and hobbyist users of McNeel’s Rhinoceros 3d modeling software and kangarop Grasshopper generative modeling plug-in.
