FORCES: GRAVITY + INFLATION + COLLISION

After building an appropriate Fuller sphere with even surface points, we add three forces on the sphere in the Grasshopper to simulate all the forces the balloon had. Finally this process has generated a similar form with the initial balloon.

Through grasshopper, we are able to flatten all the 1216 triangles on the curved surface.
