Demystifying Sevilla’s Parasols: Waffle Structures

Free Tutorials

At a recent Houdini meetup, Luc Morroni came up with quite an interesting tutorial topic: Procedural waffle structures, like the ones used in Sevilla’s Metropol Parasol.

Seems easy enough at first I thought – but as always, the devil’s in the details. In this case in the cutouts where the parts slot into each other. So enjoy hearing me waffle on (see what I did there?) about creating those types of structures and making them intersect realistically(ish).

  1. Nice little tutorial again! Helps me learn so much. Thank you.
    Little idea for a small addition to the tutorial. Maybe you could show us how you might nest the components out to a flat sheet so that you could then cnc or laser cut these componets.
