Offset (interior)

In the article called Offset (exterior) we have seen how we can create fictitious bars (external lines) to simulate the connecting elements (shackles, turnbuckles, … ) and absorb the bulk of the tubes or other structural elements. To do this we get new points that are located outside of the membrane, that is to say, the volume occupied has become larger. However there are many cases in which once obtained …Read More

Offset (exterior)

When we are looking for a form of a membrane we work with a certain geometry: vertices, cusps, straight edges, arcs, etc. This geometry is determined by a series of points with their coordinates X,Y, Z. Once we have found a form we are interested in, we pass to analysis or patterning. To do that it is often necessary to add the rest of structural elements that are not membrane: …Read More
