5.1.03. Jig Optimisation (1)
This exercise illustrates how Galapagos’ Evolutionary Solver can find optimal solution for single variables. The exercise aims to find the best location for an input curve A to match the curvature of a target curve B. The solution is calculated by minimising the distance between the 2 curves.
1. A slider controls the location of a point on the target curve
2. Orient the input curve on target curve at the point set up by step
3. The total distance between 2 curves is set up as the “fitness” parameter of Galapagos.
4. Galapagos is linked back to the slider and in order to find the optimal location.
This exercise is using Grasshopper version 1.0.0007
