Mesh vertices control

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a way to randomly change the position of the mesh vertices (in z axis), but keep the vertices along the perimeter unchanged (yellow area in attached image).
I tried using various graph mappers but they work in a linear shape while I am looking for something radial in order to keep the perimeter to zero.

P.S. I get a slightly different result if I add Sort Points before Delaunay Mesh:

Hello @HS_Kim

Thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for.

Sorry, I’m late to the party here, but there are a couple of mesh components in Kangaroo 2 that will get the naked vertices and then their local neighbours inside. Unfortunately it doesn’t output the indices, so you do still have to do a closest point calculation and dispatch, but it should run pretty quick: (11.3 KB)

These K2 mesh utility components are bundled with the latest gh release, so no extra plugins all being well.

Best wishes,

Good to know about this native components.

You can use GHopperGIS to do stuff like this, there is a terrain generator that does this but fancier if you like. Disclaimer I am the developer.
