algorithmic modeling for Rhino
This update to mesh(+) is a revision of the Volume Based Mesh and Modify categories which introduces list inputs for controlling vertex and face based variables on the input meshes.
- For Mesh Volume Based components all (d) and (t) values allow a list of variable to be passed which correspond to the vertex index of the input mesh. Single inputs can also be provided and lists of variables that are shorter than the vertex list will simply repeat the last value in the series for each remaining vertex.
- For the Modify category the Expand component now has per face variables for (d),(t), and (l) inputs. This allows for variable numbers of loops per face as well as effect overrides. This also means Single inputs can also be provided and lists of variables that are shorter than the face list will simply repeat the last value in the series for each remaining face.
- For Modify category added two new components, Crystallize and Crumple which create iterative stellation effects on each face of a mesh. These components can also take per face variables similar to Expand. (Note: If Quad option in the Crumple component is true and faces have different numbers of loops not all edges will meet a common vertices.)
