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

new version available now from the usual place:

Hello. Does anyone try to use zombie kangaroo with Galapagos? I tried to do exactly same thing as what Daniel did in the image. But, it never converge a certain height which is defined in Galapagos and stops. If anyone knows how to solve this, please tell me.

How is this difference from using a sequence to control the number of iterations run? Is it just that it's open-ended?

As promised, some videos of zombie-roo in action:

Good times,

Booom, gunshot to the head of zombie kangaroo, can be packaged in a cluster! Fantastic Daniel, userObjects with scripts of kangaroo :)

haha how much thought went into how a kangaroo would walk if it was a zombie? nice icon!

i think you succeeded integrating all the parameters in a smooth way. guess will play around with it the next days.. :)

Excellent release, the zombie-roo was most useful in our latest project up in Aalborg! I'll try to upload some video with some examples to the CITA Vimeo account when I get the chance. On an aside I noticed today that the Plankton shipping with Kangaroo (this one and the previous release) is not the same as the one on GitHub (or at least the GH functionality isn't). Cheers, Anders
