Form's Wedges

First, the work for the form's wedges were divided into to. The half I wasn't assigned with was displayed as hidden in order for the process to go more quickly and clearly.

The set of commands to create the wedges are as follows:
- ExtractIsoCrv_click midpoint
- ExtrudeCrv_ click_ click direction_ find perpendicular point
- extend past plane
- Trim wedge

The point of references were the triangles with the base on the bottom.

By using MacroEditor, the set of commands used before were shortened in order to save time in creating the wedges.

The command was written as:
! ExtractIsoCrve _pause _pause _enter _ExtrudeCrv _ pause _direction _enter

We decided on the form of the connections and the materials.
Using Grasshopper, the number of ribs were adjusted due to our choice of material and connection.
