Mesh Subdivision: Loop and Catmull-Clark

  Computational designers who work with meshes in Rhino + Grasshopper will inevitably be familiar with Giulio Piacentino’s brilliant Weaverbird plug-in. It provides a great variety of outstanding tools for creating, managing and subdividing meshes. Using mesh subdivision and smoothing approaches allows for designers to start from coarse geometries and then rapidly transform them into fluid and organic shapes. […]
