algorithmic modeling for Rhino
The new Kangaroo version also includes a new way of using the engine. Instead of the usual 'live' timer/reset combination where you see the animated process as it happens, this solves internally until a specified energy threshold is met and outputs only the final result.
It's not live, but not really dead either, hence: 'Zombie Kangaroo'
Because all the physics looping is kept internal, the component can behave like a regular Grasshopper component, and is much easier to use together with things like Galapagos.
Here is shown a simple example where Galapagos adjusts the weight of a hanging mesh so it is at a certain height after reaching equilibrium
