Wow, love the concept! Maybe slightly smaller cells on the seat, for comfort?

Wow that is an awesome result Chipp! It would probably even leave an interesting Voronoi imprint on whoever sat down in it! ;)

No doubt it needs cushions. For what it's worth, I wanted to try and stretch the limits of some of the commands, like fillet, chamfer, boolean and offset. Worked pretty well except for the fact the chamfer didn't seem to take on all the edges; I needed to go back an individually chamfer select ones it missed.

Another image with colors on the 'inside' of the boolean. Interestingly, just providing a different color (style) for the inside surfaces of the solid didn't translate to Keyshot as separate parts when using NURBS (.3dm) but worked fine when using .obj. But, .obj didn't render near as nice as nurbs. So, I had to separate the solid into surfaces to get it to work with NURBS in KeyShot.

Another render showing the 'inside' colors (click to make larger):

Yes, I saw your very creative use of Rebuild with no corner points in a previous thread and thought to try that. Great idea!

It will be better to use DelCorners script ( one of the first my scripts, by the way :)
Voronoi, Select rectangle ->Planar, Select all -> Boolean merge, Delete lines, Select all -> Separate, Select edges -> Join -> Rebuild (tolerance 1), DelCorners



This is updated version of the script

Cool tricks! _Delcorners is excellent!
I don't use the same exactly way than your (not rebuild here) but use your _Delcorners and ExplodeMove of Michael for more possibilities of placement variations ;)

_Voronoi >> Kill Points >> > Select All>> Planar >> Trim >> Select Edges >> Copy Move them somewhere >> Join >> Delcorners>>ExplodeMove
