This video shows a parametric approach to create part of the structure of the famous Farnsworth House of Mies van der Rohe using VisualARQ Grasshopper Components.
The process starts by subdividing the area to cover into different panels, which are used to generate a new profile for the beams. Later on, this new profile is used to generate a new beam style in Grasshopper. Then the VisualARQ beams are created using this new style and taking the edges of the subdivided surface as the path curves.
Finally, when the beam components are baked, they become workable VisualARQ beam elements in the existing Rhino model.
