Hi Petras

I assumed to apply rules recursively. I.e. on the first step there is only one rule. On the subsequent step the next rule has to repeat so many time how many elements are received on the pregoing step, i.e. how much 1 in the pregoing rules. In principle it can be done by means of any plug-in for recursive calculations like Anemon, but it would be more convenient to have the small component. I have illustrated the thought with the schematical image.

I will do that it is fairly easy to implement.

How do you want to have the component look like?

I mean inputs?

T - Tile

R - Rules

I - Rules id

R - Repeating rules

N - I will leave n, because you may want to multiple the whole set of rules twice for some reason

Like this?

Hi Petras

I have found for myself the partial solution use of the Stack Data tool.

I meant that it would be good to create the small additional module which of the list of rules would make the long list of rules on the basis of regular expression. I.e. that it was possible to attach to the Title T tool on an entrance both usual rules, and the long list of rules on the basis of regular expressions. In such a way it is possible to build fractal structures much easier.

Best regards

If you have a reference you want to have I can write the code for that.

This issue was discussed quite a lot between me and Gediminas. On one hand you want to have a mathetical model. But yeah cool you spend few days or a week and write it down. Works perfect. But what happens that all those structures remains mathematical and that is visually very present. Techniques that user would be able to use architectural approach rather than mathematical is more interesting for me, but trickier to develop.

Hi Petras

As the tool "Tile T" on the function reminds L-system it would be good to create the tool creating rules for "Tile T" like rules of L-system. It would be so simpler to work with complex constructions.
