Hi all, Im working on a script for a sculptor friend of mine whos working on an instalation using half mirror pannels suspended in an atrium. The idea is that the triangular pannels spiral down and then back inside the form and are proportionally oriented towards a point attractor. Im having problems with the z axis flipping when the planes are reoriented with the tangent vector at the parrameter point of the planes origin. I know this is a bit of an issue in grasshopper and have tried a few fixes already but I cant seem to make it work, if anyone has a better idea and can help out that would be great. the idea is that they should look like they are flowing down the spiral but are being pulled towards the point attractor as they get nearer it.
I was also hoping to adjust the ammount of orientation of the planes towards the attractor point by using the relative parameter on the spiral curve, so that in the tight section as the curves move towards the center they are almost totally oriented by the surface normal and not influenced by the point attractor at all. this way they would have a fairly ordered spiral inside the form and more chaotic on the external surface, any ideas how to do that?
Any help would be greatfully appriciated,
Kind regards all
