Review on Function+Vector 03









Reviewing my old script after learning Function and Vector.

INPUT: str point cloud, str target point,
dbl number of branches, dbl size of xy boundary, dbl stem length


Link to the makeTree function.

Review on Function+Vector 02













Reviewing my old script after learning Function and Vector.

INPUT: str point cloud, str target point,
dbl number of closest point, dbl size of xy boundary

Now user can select how many branches to draw without modifying the code. And script lines got significantly shorter!!!

Review on Function+Vector 01













Reviewing my old script after learning Function and Vector.

This is a code I wrote originally for FEA model of a bridge. Using Rhino.VectorCrossProduct, I finally managed to draw normal line to a spline (at a point). As print screen shows above, input is simply a core spline of the bridge.

Surface Division













Assignment from Satoru's workshop. He provided basic For... Next framework, and by modifying conditionals and/or looping, students can create more complicated grid systems.

Level1: Diagonal Lines
Level2: Orthogonal Grid
Level3: Diagrid
Level4: Gradient Density

I worked up to Level3, but for the final challenge I needed help, and was surprised how small modification I needed to make.
