algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Thanks for your post. The definition which I posted is wrong as the slider which feeds the random component cannot be narrowed down by the Galapagos solver... I am still working on the script which David kindly wrote for this leaf pattern issue.
Attached is a very simple definition which shows how Galapagos can be used (Credits to Victor Sanderberg who had the idea) It rotates and moves the construction lines of a surface in order to maximize or minimize shadow.
Hope that helps,
It sounds like you might be opening the .ghx file as xml format. Right click and choose 'Save page as...' or 'Save Link as...' to download a posted script. Then it should open properly in Grasshopper showing components, etc.
