In this video I’m creating a curve network. A curve network consist of a series of curves which has been assigned to curves from another array.
Also you learn how to use Xform modifier to transform selected vertices of a shape object.
Complex result can be achieved by linking two or more parametric array together. In this video we use PARA link controller to connect two independent array with a line segment. This can also be used in animation.
This video shows the potential of using Loft object in Parametric array.
If you array a loft object PARA cannot find the information about the PATH object (base line) To get access to the vertices of the path object or deformation properties you need to animate the object before you use it.
It’s been a while that someone asked me about using curve as magnets in parametric array, he also sent me a sample code that could return the closest point of the curve to an object. Well, unfortunately I forgot to reply him (or her) but here is a short video explaining how to the curve controller to return the closest point and incorporating the result inside the magnet controller which I’m posting it here.
I just came back from a parametric design workshop at school of design Mainz in Germany. Together with Prof. klaus Teltenkoetter and his Masterstudents “Kommunikation im Raum” we had an intense workshop which took 4 days and the last two days were more about parametric array. I’m going to post some parts in my blog.
In this video we practiced manipulating Boolean objects using a magnet controller. The fact that you can modify the Boolean operands is quite impressive!
