Veinization

Program to transform mesh and offsets of this mesh in polylines which converge to the last offset (volume near 0). I called that veinization because it is like vein, not nerves nor venation. It requires Millepede plugin for isosurface calculation, Shrotest Walk and Mesh Edit. 

Polylines can be converted to spline and curvepiping applied like in the last image. 

Sort of medial axis are generated, not perfect :-( They are used to link shrinking zones

    Hi Laurent, thanks for sharing. I just download the gh file you shared. And after I installed all plugins I need like Millipede, Shortest Walk and Mesh edit, I still have a problem on the VB script component, why is it red?

    Hi, It must be a bug inside VB, an index out off range in a list. I will look at it.
