Finding funicular forms using the dynamic mass method

Introducing a new component to find funicular forms using springs with 'dynamic' masses.

Instead of forces that stay constant during form-finding, masses update per time-step depending on the length of the elements (areas to be implemented soon). This approach means the final equilibrium network balances lumped nodal masses based on the length of adjoining elements perfectly (assuming no element bending).

For the case of…

I wrote this code about 2 years ago now. 

Each canvas begins with a collection of nodes. Each node generates tangents based on it's size.

The fun bit was to figure out how to deal with a lot of almost random lines and intersections.The final pieces look like a cluttered bird's nest,…

Molteni arc table by Foster + Partners using Kangaroo v2

Thanks Daniel for your suggestions in my first post here!

The radial mesh has the advantage of being able to control the two different spring tensions in the mesh. If I use one spring type for the entire surface, the relaxed net pulls together a lot which unfortunately is not that aesthetically pleasing. Thats why I opted for two separate spring components in my…

Polygon Equalizer Form-Finding

In this script, the forms are derived from an original polygon base. With each increase in the Z dimension, the sides of the polygon approach equal length. With each Z increase, the edges also approach the polygon centroid. The ratio between…

Kangaroo wins at 1st ALGODeQ competition

ALGODeQ is an international competition for algorithmic design programs, held for the first time this year.

There were 190 entries from 43 countries, judged by a large panel of professors and practitioners from around the world, in a multi-stage process.

The original intent of the organisers had been to award a single Grand-Prix, with an award of 1 million Yen, but during the judging process it was decided to award multiple highest prizes in 3 separate categories.

It is a… Continue

Rheotomic grid/surfaces


A while ago Daniel Parker kindly shared a component named Rheotomic surfaces, I'm wondering if anyone can help me to work with it.

I'm trying to get to the circle packing pattern for the base grid for CA based agents. The problem is since the lines start from a square shape center they create redundant intersections. Is there a way to have circles in the center like Phyllotaxis, and have clean intersection, where all related lines meet…
