Waffle Structural System - Surface
create a notched "waffle" structural system for any given surface. With this definition, you can specify the number of struts in the X & Y axis as well as the strut depth and the notch thickness (or the strut material thickness). The waffle system has a few components that define the strut labels and has a slider to control the label size to keep the model organized. Finally, the definition orients the strut curves to the X-Y axis so that the curves can be easily output directly to a CNC mill or laser cutter.
Use with Grasshopper v0.5.0093 ! Newer versions of grasshopper might cause malfunction

Waffle Structural System - Solid Geometry
Download grasshopper definition for solid geometry
This script is aim to take in a BRep polysurface solid for generating a laser cutting file.
It can handle hollow forms, cantilevering masses and can generally take more complex geometry then the usual section plane-section curve algorithm. This is because of an operation which determines the middle point for notch/slot to happen, instead of the usual fixed height notching.
- Ideal script to generate massing models for complex geometries.
- It uses a global coordinate grid to determine cutting plates location, which allows two adjoining form to be baked separately while cutting plates matching across the two form.
- Best used in mm scale.
