4.01. bamboo visualisation
“This script visualises an axis model by placing bamboo-like geometry on top of it that its suitable for the production of Make2D line drawings or for rendering.
Axis lines are first oriented to have their starting points at the lower part and end points higher up as these will become the slightly thicker base and thinner tips of the bamboo culms. The axis lines are then broken up into segments of increasing length that will be used to identify internodal cells. Each cell is then used to place a series of circles that will be used to create cell like geometries and nodes. In the end, two outputs are produced: 1) (heavy) NURBS geometry, which can be used for the production of Make2D line drawings, and 2) (light) meshes, which can be used for rendering and quicker visualisation.”
