Slingshot! Demo: Querying a Mesh

In the video demonstration below, MySQL queries are used to progressively assemble a Grasshopper mesh using information stored in database tables on a remote computer.

First, individual x,y,z coordinates are queried from a points table to create the point cloud.
Second, the index numbers for the faces are queried to produce the mesh surface
Third, gaussian curvature values are queried and used to produce the gradient color.
