How to model strangler fig structures? (Baubotanik)

Hi @feklee

If you want a joined result you need to input curves which share some end points.
This means if you have one curve meeting the side of another curve, you need to split the second one so there’s a point there.
Here’s an example showing this, and random radius values for the nodes:
(if you want specific radii instead of random - input a list of values at each of the points going into ‘SizePoints’)

For more info on the settings see the example files and pdf here.

Not sure if this is the kind of thing you are after though. For something more amorphous and blobby you might be better going the route of merging pipes together with Dendro.
