This is supposed to be implmented in my existing design attached here A2_Jamie_Yu.gh (24.5 KB)

but I think ran into so much trial and error with the littlest
thing that would just not work. I don’t really know how to do arithmetic patterns on grasshopper. because the number of sides is supposed to correlate with the height of the building

At this point, I don’t really know how to approach this idea and wanna see if I could get any suggestions or help before I abort this entirely.

So you start with only one square at the bottom? Or? How about starting with 100 squares at the bottom and decreasing by 8 on each floor? But you said “sides” not squares…

I don’t really know which method is best, thinking of them as sides or squares are different approaches. I mostly tried working with lines in my script. (it didn’t go well) Just as long as they make the general shape I’m looking for.

Decreasing might work as well but I don’t know how to make a pattern happen (that correlates with the floorplate number). How to individually extract the number of floors to multiply/increase by incriminates of 8 and reconstruct the shape of the floor with that new information.

On the other hand, this conforms to the requirement of increasing the number of sides per floor by 8.

Trying to feel better about the path I chose. I set the ‘Floor_M’ slider to 17 and got this: 10 floors. ‘Size’ slider still doesn’t work as hoped but it’s irrelevant, eh.
