algorithmic modeling for Rhino

A little test of metaballs / implicit surfaces in Kangaroo.

Because this is force based it is possible to generate a nicely structured mesh instead of the messy triangles from marching cubes (it's also fairly quick)


I plan to upload the new Kangaroo with this feature (and several other additions) in the next few days

Hi david

I am trying to thicken some basic curves in grasshopper and have been trying using 2d metaballs in x,y and z, but this results in a relatively useless collection of planar curves. Is the method you show here possible in the current kangaroo? Could you please give me some advise on how to progress with this? My aim is to achieve a closed mesh solid for analysis in GSA, returning to galapagos to achieve optimisation of the structure.

Me too: big like! This looks awesome. I love the weaving effect! I caught myself staring at it:)
