Conjugate curve network / Conjugate direction fields 5 Replies

Hello,lately I have been investigating on conjugate curve networks and I was surprised to find so little information on it in this forum. The little bit I found was regarding…Continue

Hey Daniel:I am really enjoying SPM so far. I must admit that I am still in the exploratory/getting to know stage of the process. What interested me is your object collision script that you answered…Continue

Yeah, at some point they booted SPMVC from the Food4Rhino site.

However, I opensourced this plugin a while back. Get it here:

is there any way to download the plug-in?

When I click on the main link, I get this.

Hey everybody!

I need the installation file (gha) very urgently at work! But frankly I forgot my login and I don`t get any email, when requesting a new password. Can someone help me out, please?

Is SPM compatible or convertible with PTV Vissim or not? Maybe some others ways to transfer data are? thanks

Comment by Diamadis on October 15, 2012 at 6:23am

hey! is it possible to use SPM to simulate swarm/flock behaviors between simple geometries (not just 3d point vectors)

There has been some spamming from this group....I've now tweaked the settings so that members can't send group messages.

Hopefully that should do it...

Hi Arthur,

We haven't done any testing with Rhino 5 yet. I'll have to get back to you on that one...

Hi Daniel,

Thank you so much for this amazing tool. I just discovered it and am having so much fun with it!!

Just one question: Is there a way to use SPM on GH using Rhino 5. Unfortunately although SPM.gha is in my components folder it does not appear on my Rhino 5 GH tools.

Hope there is a solution. Many thanks!
