Technique & Materiality

Below are exercises 1.3 & 1.4:

A point I forgot to add to my Materials piece was that the object will be thin but To add some qualities of a sponge I would like to play with the density of certain areas, using techniques such as offsetting and subtracting to give it a “porous” aesthetic.

I had some troubles with the Truss Tutorials. I got all the way to video 4 with no apparent problems but then for some reason when I went to merge the two curves it was being seen as four by grasshopper and therefore not leaving the center part “open”. Below I’ve included the three screenshots I took of first completing video 3 showing that the offset and fillet worked then the error that occurred when moving on to the next video. HELP?
