ABSTRACT

We present analysis methodology for different types of geometry. This is needed for classification methodology of surfaces. We have proposed several classes and ways to place surfaces in proper classes, according to their characteristic curves. Several state-of-the-art cases were analysed with Grasshopper (GH) procedure. Classes are explained and some shapes are tested. Classification is necessary for further design improvement and analysis of existing geometry.
