"Having explored a few Rhino/Grasshopper plugins for minimal surface generation, sphereneRHINO distinctly stands out. It has a straightforward interface, paired with spherene's concise tutorials and cloud integration, ensuring rapid iterations of our design studies."
With sphereneRHINO, you can create intricate and optimized structures for your designs, unlocking new levels of precision and efficiency.
Control the complex using simple geometry modifiers and field points. Use all tools, Rhino3D provides to set up your design framework. Rhino scripting, Grasshopper or manually placing points, work as you like.
Seamlessly morph between aperiodic minimal surface, hollow space and irregular arranged lattice (amorphous stochastic lattice).
As output you get a single surface or a solid mesh, ready for 3D printing in any additive manufacturing method using any material.
Define the space where your spherene structure will be generated.
Adjust variables like density, wall thickness, and surface bias to suit your specific needs.
Opt for more complex geometries to suit unique design challenges.
Control how spherene structures interact with other surfaces, whether growing onto them or creating partial or enclosed hulls.
Use Case: sphereneRHINO for Footwear
From Inspiration to Geometry
3D scanned bike saddle converted to a SUBD mesh as design base for creating boundary geometry to grow on to. Application of density points to control the ADMS density in sphereneRHINO
Controling variable wall thickness by simply placing points in your 3D scene using sphereneRHINO
Use standard Rhino tools creating complicated density, thickness and surface bias fields. In this example artistically recreate a femur in sphereneRHINO.
Cavity field points allow for very easy and fun placement of cavities in and on your geometry. Control the radius and combine multiple field points for more complex outcomes.
Apply simple points and geometry to control complex Spherene behaviour. In this example we make use of grasshopper for Rhino3D to generate a density field from a baropodometry image, downloaded from wikipedia.
Use field points to control thickness asymmetry and surface bias. Thickness asymmetry allows shifting the solid surface towards a volume. Surface bias allows shifting the single surface (Ideal minimal surface) towards a volume.
