The artist Carlo Borer asked me to implement tailored developable surface modelling tools for rhino.
Using Grasshopper together with the evolutionary algorithm solver Galapagos, an optimization routine for lofted surface strips towards developable surfaces has been implemented.
Gaussian curvature of original and optimized surface. For developable surfaces, the gaussian curvature is zero.
Carlo Borer: 401, 2009.
