Is there a specific Grasshopper plugin specific to shape construction based on medial axis/skeleton and convolution surfaces?
In 1967, Blum [*] proposed the technique of Medial Axis Transform to describe biological shapes.

Speech and Visual Form”, Weinant Wathen-Dunn (Editor), MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 362-381
Since then MAT has been a highly active research topic in the fileds of computational geometryi computer vision and CAD.
In 1991, Jules Bloomenthal and Ken Shoemake [**] proposed a new shape description approach based on skeletons and convolution functions. It is called “convolution surfaces”.

QUESTION: Is there an available Grasshopper plugin making use of line/curve skeletons and convolution functions to define 2D/3D surfaces?
