‘Panelling & Geometric Optimization of Freeform Envelopes’ Workshop

In-depth workshop on the underlying geometries governing a range of panelisation techniques, as well as the software processes to create them. Topics included refinement of developable strips, creation of circle packing and conical mesh solutions with tri/ quad meshes, and uses of principle curvature lines.

A set of varied freeform surfaces were panelised and optimised for weighted criteria such as planarity, uniformity of size, fairing lines, singly-curved with repeating radii, and so on.

Workshop run by Florin Isvoranu and Evolute.
