(This is different from circle or sphere packing on an ellipsoid).
I came across a fantastic paper introducing ellipsoid packing of freeform surfaces and I was wondering if anyone has already succeeded coding it visually on grasshopper or tried to ? I am currently dealing with a building envelop made of 5-6-7 mesh out of a structural stress optimization and would love to see what ellipsoid packing will generate visually.
This is a visual from the paper,
and here is a link to it.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this approach, or any strategy to attack this through Kangaroo.
Could someone point me where to start?
