Combinations of points

VB

Hi there,

Let's say I have a set of points (4 or more) on the same plane.

feet = [[0,0,0], [77,0,0], [14,45.50,0], [63,45.5,0]];

They represent the holes in PCBs; my goal is to generate simple supports.
For the time being, I link the four points with a cross like
https://github.com/MerryKombo/3DDesign/blob/master/assets/Server%20Rack/1U/boards/orangepi%20zero.png
.
I now need to generate something sturdier, with more links for bigger
boards with holes not forming a square like in
https://github.com/MerryKombo/3DDesign/blob/master/assets/Server%20Rack/1U/boards/zdcHZN2bVy.png
.

I was thinking of making a mesh (a mess?) of all points with the help
of BOSL2 combinations() and pairs() functions (so that I get each
point connected to every other point), but it looks like these
functions are not adapted to lists of points, just to arrays.

Would there be anything in more or less standard libraries to get the
job done, or am I on my own?

Thanks for your help.

If you just want to construct all pairs of distinct points then you can do
something like

pair_list = [for(p1=points, p2=points) if (p1!=p2) [p1,p2]];
