generative modeling for Rhino
Hey I am trying to create lines or normal vectors with their lengths varying due to the curvature of the surface.. is this something you might be able to help with?
first of all a couple of questions:
1. I assume you're talking about a metaball surface since you post this question here, but just in case - are you?
2. If yes, do you absolutely need to use metaballs? (a standard NURBS surface is much easier to handle)
3. What type of curvature do you want to sample? (Min, Max, Mean, Gaussian? - If you're not familiar with those names maybe you can check out Rhino's help file, you'll find brief explainations there, note that surface curvature is a subject a bit more complicated than curve curvature)
also, do you have an example file that you're working on? what problems have you encountered? the more specific a question the more helpful the answer.
