A number of panel variations leading to fitness criteria based on budget, aesthetic surface approximation, structure, and overall weight.
Each iteration demonstrates a decreasing number of panels to approximate the original surface from 30×70 panels to 10×40.
Each iteration is further analyzed based on total material used and the resultant budget for material and connections.
Tesselion uses a method of planar quadrilateral meshes to tessellate complex surfaces. The following is a diagram showing the stages of panelization.
The following image demonstrates the range of possibilities using the Tesselion method of panelization. The middle range shows the target surface generation for construction in mid May. The surface criteria fall between limitations in timeline, budget, and small scale structural concerns, otherwise practically any surface can be constructed using the Tesselion method.
