RhinoPolyhedra for Rhino will allow you to create and visualize a variety of polyhedral shapes; over 630 different shapes.

 

What’s new:

  • The project has been completely rewritten to run in both Rhino 6 for Windows and Rhino 6 for Mac (WIP).
  • The project now includes support for Grasshopper. You’ll find the components on the Mesh toolbar under Polyhedron.
  • The Polyhedron command now creates over 630 shapes.
  • The Polyhedron command now outputs meshes (ngons) or curves, in addition to surfaces and polysurfaces.

RhinoPolyhedra supports Rhino 6 for Windows, Rhino 6 for Mac (WIP,) and Rhino 5 for Windows.

RhionPolyhedra for Rhino 6 also supports Grasshopper on both Windows and Mac.

RhinoPolyhedra has these Rhino commands and Grasshopper components:

  • Polyhedron - Creates a variety of polyhedra; over 630 different shapes.
  • MeshIcoSphere - Create a mesh icosphere, which is a a refined icosahedron.
  • MeshQuadSphere - Creates a mesh quad sphere, which is a refined cube.
  • PolarZonohedron. Creates a polar zonohedron, which is a convex zonohedron derived from the star which joins opposite vertices of any right n-gonal prism (for n even) or antiprism (for n odd). The faces of this zonohedron consist of n equal rhombs surrounding one vertex, n rhombs beyond these, and so on, giving n-1 sets of n rhombs altogether that end with those surrounding the opposite vertex.
  • QuickHull - Creates a convex hull from selected points using the QuickHull algorithm.
  • Waterman - Creates a Waterman polyhedron, which is created by packing spheres, according to cubic close packing (CCP), then sweeping away the spheres that are farther from the center than a defined radius, then creating the convex hull of the resulting pack of spheres.
