no worries thanks
That’s totally up to you! Here’s an example with a curve attractor. Umbrellas close to the curve are more closed than others that a further away. This behavior can also be quite easily inverted.
In my example, the rod lengths stay constant. The trick is to rotate each individual edge, rather then scaling them non-uniformly.
(This is also animated! Click it, if it doesn’t auto-play.)
Hope this helps! And for the future, please don’t create more than one thread for the same thing.

This is so great thank you so much and thanks to everyone helping me! I am so close to getting where I want to be with the script, the last thing I am trying to do is apply this to a non-planar surface, to line up with a different script.
I just need each “umbrella” to rotate not on the z-axis but according to the center curve. As noted on the script, MCneel forum help.gh (187.4 KB)
