algorithmic modeling for Rhino

About Grasshopper...

For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper® is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.

Eli replied to KevinS's discussion circle packing along sphere surface + merging difference with surf
"It turns out to be quite challenging to subdivide a sphere in grasshopper without variation at the poles of the sphere. I have been after a more even distribution for some time. Any luck with this? Could you share?Thank you!"
