Changing Topography with a Curve Attractor – Example 4.5

Many of the examples we looked at in the 2D Patterns can be adapted to create geometry in 3 Dimensions. In this exercise, we use the same logic employed in the Curve Attractor Example to… Continue reading

Multiple Point Vector Field – Example 6.2

As explained in the previous example, vectors are not geometry in and of themselves, but are used to influence geometry, by orienting it, moving it, etc. In the last example we oriented rectangles.… Continue reading

Curve Attractors – Example 2.3

In the last two examples, we looked at point attractors, but you can also use attractors with curves (think paths). In this example we will use the concept of an attractor to scale geometry based on the… Continue reading

Multiple Point Attractor with Random Point Cloud – Example 2.2

A multi-point attractor follows a similar logic as the single point attractor, although distance is measured in a slightly different way. In principle, however, a multi-point attractor is much more useful than a… Continue reading

Single Point Attractor – Example 2.1

A common method for form management in parametric modeling systems and contemporary design is to use a concept known as an attractor. This example of a single point attractor has very limited practical… Continue reading
