"I added the 4 different types to the script.
I also added a threshold for when to add or remove a segment for generating odd or even panels. If the size of the lateral panels is too large you can lower the value to add another segment. Ideally this…"
"And here is a scripted version of more or less what Kangaroo is doing, so you don't need any plugins.
It has the advantage of stopping once it's under a maximum deviation value before it reaches the maximum number of steps set.
"Is this what you want? I'm making many assumptions that seem to be in your drawing.
Curve is a straight line, connecting bottom corners of the surfaces, the surfaces are perpendicular to the line, amongst others."
"You can shatter the polyline into many segments of the same length and apply a different color to each segment following a gradient.
You can also create a pipe out of the polyline, having cross-section vertices at equidistant intervals and adding…"
"As it says, it mutates the genes (generates genes that go further away to the target fitness) so you get more variation. It's useful if you think you are stuck in a local optima. You can click it many times in a row to mutate them more."
"The values seem close enough. Maybe DIVA/Radiance uses a non deterministic Monte Carlo approach to calculate indirect radiation so the results vary slightly on every run. You might be able to increase accuracy at the cost of speed by…"
"You make it sound like that solution will work just as well as the one I posted. If you are special casing straight lines, sure, but the OP wants other types of curves.
It is possible I over-engineered the solution and a more simple one exists…"
"Galapagos will continue unless you set a runtime limit or threshold. If you have only 8 possible combinations, it doesn't make sense to use Galapagos. Change the definition so it solves the 8 combinations and then select the…"
"Since you are offsetting quads, it's likely you can get away with using offset loose. For each curve it will output a single item rather than a list so the data structure remains the same.
If you then want to have branches with two elements,…"
"Ok. That's the first thing that crossed my mind but then you mentioned the Human plugin so I thought installing plugins was not a problem.
I guess each has his priorities but I think the two most essential plugins to have installed are…"
