Being a rich source of geometric forms, Chinese lattice designs have interested some scholars. With shape grammar and algorithmic approaches, the generation of Chinese lattice designs has been achieved except for that of irregular interdependently structured iceray designs. This paper introduced an algorithmic approach to solve the problem. The algorithm includes crack-track presetting, cracktrack cutting, crack correcting, and bad shape disposing, realized by programming with Grasshopper VB script component.
