Designing and optimising panel layouts made easy

EvoluteTools Lite is a free Rhino plugin allowing intuitive design of panelizations using multi-resolution mesh modeling and mesh optimization. Meshes can be optimized for closeness to a reference surface, fairness (smoothness) of its polylines and several other goals. No strings attached: unlimited mesh size at no cost.

  • multi-resolution mesh modeling
  • global and local subdivision rules
  • specification of vertices as anchor/corner points
  • mesh editing tools
  • mesh optimization for:
    • closeness to reference surfaces
    • fairness
    • sphere packings
  • hybrid meshes (mixtures of triangles, quads, pentagons, hexagons, ...)
  • modeling and optimization of N-gon meshes (PolyMeshes)
  • analysis modes:
    • closeness to a reference object
    • planarity of panels
    • edge length distribution
