RhinoPolyhedra
(by Dale Fugier)

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.
