A System for Constrained Aggregation

Rule-Based Component Aggregation with Constrained Rotation, Reflective Symmetry and Collision Detection | September-October 2017

This project resulted in the development of a geometrically general but compositionally constrained system for component aggregation in the Rhinoceros 3D / Python environment. Components and connection points are defined as blocks in Rhinoceros, and parameters for aggregation rules, rotation constraints and levels of symmetry are given as Python variables.
