RoomSurveyor implements iterative triangulation algorithms to assist users to survey rooms, either orthogonal or non-orthogonal, and automating the drawing of the as-is survey. RoomSurvey components in particular, can be used to deploy an interactive workflow of space survey for non-expert users that mimics the empiric surveying workflows used by architects. This enables the possibility of developing low-key design interfaces for mass-customizable systems where contextual information is required.
It is the result of the PhD research developed by Filipe JS Brandão at ISCTE-Instituto Universitário de Lisboa / ISTAR-IUL research center. It includes interactive triangulation algorithms (da Silva Brandão et al. 2020) to assist the accurate survey of non-convex rooms and a few other utilities to handle 2D Polygons. Two versions of the RoomSurvey algorithm are offered: the first, described in (Brandao et al. 2019), is more effective in rooms with few non-orthogonal corners; a second one, RoomSurvey Strict, privileges shortest diagonals and is more effective in rooms with no orthogonal corners.
RoomSurveyor is now supported on ShapeDiver! For more information on how to set up a configurator check here
This is a quick demo on how to use the RoomSurvey component inside Grasshopper.
