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!
