Parametric Necklace

Hello dear community,

I need some help to create a definition for a personnal project of parametric necklace:

I would like to find a smart system for the assembly of the pearls together on a necklace (pearls following a pipe)

my constraints are :

1/ I would like to have the possibility to create different series of pearls: for example :

A = Big pearl

B = Standard

C = small pearl

and then I would like to have the possibility of creating the series I want, as :

A B C A B C A B C or AAAAAAAAAA or ABBABBABBABBA and so on…

2/ As you can see on the sketch pearls has to be a little bit gathered together, so they aren’t tangents but they are gathered together with some regularity

3/ The pearls must fill the pipe entirely, from the start of the pipe to the end

Here is a first sketch of the system I’m looking for :

thank you very much !!

Hi,

You could do something like this:

Instead of letters, I use indices of radii from the radii list.
