DESIGN FUTURING LOFTING AND EDITING IN RHINOCEROS3D MANIPULATION OF LOFT The lofted surface produced in Grasshopper was manipulated via modification of the control points of the base curves. The degree to which these points were shifted effected the dramatization of the geometry. Through experimentation this technique was capable of generating various forms and undulating surfaces. The generation of abstract geometry was limited however due to minimal control points. A more complex lofted surface, made up of a series of curves with multiple control points would increase potential to develop stimulating, figurative shapes through manipulation in Rhino3D. Below are thumbnails of the resultant geometry produced through this exercise. The succession of rudimentary to quite advanced geometries produced through experimentation is evident.
