Scripted Scalable Truss

This is a current project I'm playing around with - a scalable truss form - in which the thickness of the surface and the degree of the offset is determined by the distance from the ground plane. This was done in rhinoscript - which I found easier to do than in grasshopper. However, I have a student in studio who has developed a similar system in grasshopper. My plan is to design more complex geometry with the system and more sophisticated levels of control for varying thickness and opening - eventually fabricating a full scale cast construction.
