DESCRIPTION

This powerful exercise allows you to plastically modify a given mesh, and then smoothen and convert it into a mesh made from fully planar quad.  

PROCEDURE 

1.Flattens each of the quads in a mesh.  
2.Equalises the diagonal length of each of the quads.  
3.Plastic anchor to prevent drift.  
4.ClampLength keeps the distance between 2 points between given bounds but applies no force when the distance is within these limits.  
5.Uniform Laplacian smoothing rounds any sharp features of a mesh. 

This exercise is using Grasshopper version 1.0.0007
