algorithmic modeling for Rhino


in this post I´d like to share one of my latest studies on parametric design.

To me those ordered-random structures appear vivid and animated. They can be associated to frozen movements like silk in the wind or water or many other things or events and by that reflect the beholder´s personal horizont of experiences. It stimulates your synapses, it invites you to explore, feel, touch, weight, turn.

Without being too poetic a structured surface, depending on how it´s executed, is able to communicate a certain taste, style, philosophy and can add more depth to products. I like stuff that shows personality.






here is the definition: It´s surprisingly simple.08_wrinkled fabric surface

To let the surface wrinkles fade on both sides, I baked the geometry and aligned the cv´s in Rhino to a common Z-Level. But it wouldn´t be hard to modify the definition in GH to let it fade towards a attraction point or line.

Would there be a way to control that the edge of the surface becomes flat ? As if the fabric had a frame. 

Very cool anyways ! Thanks
