I finally got around to documenting my lamp project from the summer! I wanted a new light fixture for my living and decided to make one based on that old standby, triangulation. However, since this was a project to big to 3D print or fold I needed to account for material thickness and connection in a more complex way. In the end I wrote a rhinoscript that will automatically generate the proper cut files for an arbitrarily shaped triangulated mesh.

You can find all the code and example files on github.
