Grasshopper Plug-in for Phyllotaxis Creatures
seaUrchin is a plug-in harnessing the power of simple phyllotaxis algorithms to generate a diverse array of forms. This plug-in facilitates the creation of any of the species mentioned in this encyclopedia, and we encourage users to explore the development of additional species to expand the kingdom of the phyllotites.
On a more technical note, the components of this plug-in enable the generation of a continuous and complex polyline, simplifying the translation into G-code for 3D printing purposes. Despite the intricacy of these polylines, the printing time and material utilization for all these species are highly efficient, thanks to their unique morphology.
