Radiolaria studies in Grasshopper

radiolarionI tried some tests using the VB.net  HoneyComb script and some attraction / repulsion conditions to organize radiolaria-like configurations on a sphere surface. These complicated patterns emerge from the way matter is organized but most of the times the follow two rules, either circle-packing  or hexagonal tiling. Attraction and repulsion makes the structure denser or more loose.

attraction to a single pointThe grasshopper definition is currently operating with two point attractors of controlled attraction or repulsion field, adding enough complexity to the plain  honeycomb configuration. However there are infinite possibilities on how to to extend the provided hexagons furthermore and produce interesting geometries.

rad3I will clean the script and upload it as usual to the [Sub]Code page.
