Best fitting element - galapagos

Hi all, I would like to follow a similar approach to the project Wood Chip Barn - Design and Make, on the topic of best-fitting elements on a simple structure using an evolutionary algorithm Galapagos.

Does anybody have a clue on how it could be done or the logic behind :

  • best fitting location of several shapes ( What is the suitable location of a shape along the structure)

  • best fitting transformation (What is suitable movement and 3d rotation of a shape along the structure )

Read AAG paper of the Tree Fork Truss.
Then try to do it manually.
Only then optimize.
