Glenn will be presenting his and Anca Trandafirescu's (area.architecture) research project 'Cutwork: Robotic Hotwire Foam Cutting for Producing Variable Pre-cast Units' at the ACADIA conference in San Fransisco on Friday, Oct. 19. More info on the project can be found on their practice site here.

In this tutorial I demonstrate the basic building blocks for generating geometry from a UV surface. This tutorial follows in the logic of previous 'point matrix' systems by generating a dictionary of the points 'evaluated' from the surface. Script can be downloaded here. Total Length: 25.35
This tutorial builds upon the concepts covered in the 'point matrix' tutorial of 9/19/12. It covers the use of dictionary to create a 3D point matrix with a keyed index. This allows one to later access any point in the matrix through these key values or through an equation. I demonstrate how to use this to create variable 3D geometry. The two scripts demonstrated can be downloaded here and here. Length:28.32

In this tutorial I build upon the techniques of recursion and pseudo scripting introduced in the last tutorial with a more complex generative system. Script can be downloaded here. Total Length: 27.01

In this tutorial I introduce the concept of recursion by writing a script that produces a spiral form from a single line. This type of recursion recursively calls a function from within itself - inputting the new data it produces, creating an endless loop. The script can be downloaded here. Total Length: 28.51

In this tutorial I build upon the mid-point function by designing a new function that creates 'loaded' points (i.e. points that are generated by an equation that 'loads' them towards or away from either one of the generating points. Download script here. Total Length: 9.49

This tutorial covers the use of dictionary to create a point matrix with a keyed index. This allows one to later access any point in the matrix through these key values or through an equation. I demonstrate how to use this to create variable 2D patterns. The script can be downloaded here. Length:32.25
