algorithmic modeling for Rhino
The last release (0.3.2) of octopus [on food4rhino] contains a small manual and four commented example files which should give a rough overview over basic funtions.
basic new features are:
- you can work single-objective problems by imposing diversity as a second objective
- you can add preference selections that try to get close to the parametrization of that solution, compared to the older preference selection where the respective part of objective space is favoured
- you can change the number of objectives during a search
- 3d models of the solutions can be displayed in octpus' objective-space viewport
also here are two more recent little videos:
you can look, zoom and pan in the viewport of octopus with the same commands as in rhino, to examine the solutions.
- Right mouse button + mouse movement: rotate the scene
- SHIFT + RMB + mouse movement: pan the scene
- CTRL + RMB + mouse movement: zoom the scene
this should give you a good overview of what EMO is.
Traditionally, a good set of solutions for the user
- is close to the real pareto front (check)
- is evenly distributed along its approximation of the pareto-front (check)
- has extents in the search space as big as possible
some examples to get startet:
