2 arches

The membrane tensioned between two arches is a classic. This can be found in a variety of forms. In fact, the blog entry Creating a complex model uses this type of form in various ways. This window of mesh creation between two arcs allows we to: Generate a symmetrical mesh Generate a asymmetrical mesh with unequal heights of the arches. In…

Conoid

Although the conoid term has different meanings according to the context in which it is used, in the field of tensile architecture, we use it to refer to those forms of revolution, similar to a cone, where the curve is not a straight line but a concave curve as seen from outside. If the conoid is…

Hyperbolic Paraboloid

The hyperbolic paraboloid is a paradigmatic example of the membranes of double curvature. Although its use is much lower than that of conoids of revolution, it is also a model quite usual. That is why WinTess3 has a special module dedicated to generate this type of models. This is a parametric object that, through a set…
