    Hi Jon,

    I’ve seen this in the grasshopper3d site. Can you explain how you have done this amazing thing!

    My email is:

    Thank you!

    Hello Fran,

    This was actually a very simple definition that uses a system of attraction to manipulate the control points of lines. Whether attracted by points, curves, surfaces (representing wind flow, solar radiation, etc.), lines are rebuilt based on their “attraction” to those values. Once the curves are rebuilt, the new polylines are then lofted to the original lines.

      Thank you for the answer Jon! I’m trying to do some wind architecture and this images inspire me so much! If you want, you can see my definition for modify a surface based on a wind vector:

      it’s a first aproximation, but the wind test works ;). I have the problem with the surface modification.

      Best Regards,
