algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I'm currently studying some basic Shape Grammar in MIT. Worked on a small project exploring the emergence nature by a single spatial relationship between a perfect tetrahedron and a pyramid.
Tetrahedron: 24 Symmetries
Pyramid: 8 Symmetries
Design space = 24 X 8 = 192 permutations
So I decided to write a simple orientation script to iterate over all permutations. And this is the result. Below are some technical notes.
The spatial relationship and the basic grammar A -> A + B and B -> A + B
The basic grammar and possible marker positions.
All results in 6 iteration steps
