I am not sure where to look, but here is what I am trying to achieve.
I want to ask some questions, like “What is your favourite colour”, month you were born, etc… and depending on their answers I would create a random pattern.
Not sure where to look and if this is something Grasshopper can do.
This is just for an internal work thing where I can create random patterns to be laser cut or engraved.
Any ideas would be really helpful, thanks.
If it’s just simple randomness, then I recommend hashing the answers and using the hash values as random seeds. There’s nothing in GH proper which can return hash codes for strings, but it would be a pretty trivial C# one-liner.
If you have multiple answers, you can also generate multiple random engines, each perhaps in control of one aspect of your pattern.
Thanks, I figured some sort of programming would be needed.
I am just starting to make a list of various patterns I can create in Grashopper and then work backwards to the questions.
I am also going through a Generative Algorithms PDF I just found online.

OK, Sir David of Rutten … Way cool and it works on Mac also!
Thanks so very much.
