algorithmic modeling for Rhino



Nudibranch is a set of components facilitating and automating Grasshopper’s capacity to generate distance-based value datasets, while recording particle traces moving within attractor defined vector-fields, that can be further implemented into animated simulations.

In particular, Nudibranch aims to automate the attractor generation and development process (one or multiple), while covering most of the frequently used cases, without however intenting to replace or render useless the basic understanding of how attractors operate. In addition a few animation components enable the real-time interaction between attractors and the affected data offering a more coherent output of the affected enitities or values.

Nudibranch is an experimental project and it might still contain  bugs. Please use it "as is", it does not come with warranties. Please give credit where credit is due according to the license file.

What is a Nudibranch????????? Specifically Glaucus Atlanticus..

You can download Nudibranch from the  Food4Rhino website.

A brief documentation and generic examples are also included in the download folder.

If you develop an interesting design using this tool, or even better if you want to share some feedback and your thoughts on Nudibranch just drop a line. It will be really appreciated.

Hey Marios. Just downloaded your tools. The Attractor tools have very convenient length and vector outputs so that it can be used to easily create scalar and vector fields. 

Grasshopper has so many plugins now... the snowball keeps getting bigger and bigger!

hehehe!! Thanks bud. looking forward to your exhaustive testing..

Did not know pokemons actually exist, until I saw what Nudibranch is :)
Just joking, your plugin looks very interesting Marios.
Thank you.
