Then as the individual cell is made larger or smaller than the average size, it is made deep/shallow or thick/think. This variation is visible in the iterations below. This level of analysis adds a level of removal from the designer. One cannot be sure where the depth will shift.
Variations are rendered to give some sense of the range of variation possible. I will be gearing up for class in the fall and will post tutorials on document templates and rule firing, check back.

Making a few tweeks with the sliders and then baking each, the variations from a screen shot below. Unfortunately I could not find a way to trim in grasshopper so this task is completed once the geometry is baked.
When selecting the point, make sure "point" is selected in Rhino. If "coordinate" is selected you can make a point, but you will not be able to move it around.
Revised file based on some feedback from Gabe. My trim is a bit messy because I could not get it to subtract the correct side. I exploded the surfaces to get the final trim. Here is a link to the grasshopper file.

As a variation of the simple surface, it gets slightly submerged into the stocck material, leaving a flat surface on the top with the remaining surface being milled. This reduces the material thickness and milling time.

The crossing points of the framework are used as the input points for the cell. A central point is used to control the polar array and distort the framework.

The parts spread as they move horizontally and thin as they move vertically.
Another key aspect of this research is in the investigation of material efficient form that can be completely nested on a flat sheet. While this project is not zero waste, one can see the potential of cutting such forms from a flat sheet.
