I would like some help with setting up an anemone loop. What Im trying to do is create a path or series of triangles which can be adjusted to follow different curvatures. To begin with I used the sine curve, divided it and connected the points. What I am trying to do now, is to adjust the lengths of the triangles which would then adjust the path (i.e. from straight to a wave), this is an important factor as the lengths of the triangles should control the curvature as opposed to setting and adjusting a curve which would determine the path of the triangles.
I have tried to set up an anemone loop but the curvature is not correct, I think there is an error somewhere in the definition. Anemone Setup.gh (10.9 KB)
I then tried to set up the algorithm manually, but as you can see it is long and tedious and I have had no success looping it while maintaining the controls (GH: red bubble) 4. TetraWave_Manual setup.gh (29.1 KB)
If anybody could take at look at the algorithms and maybe see where I am going wrong or offer any advice as to how I could generate the anemone loop from the manual setup, I would be very grateful. It is very complicated so any advice would be much appreciated!

Thank you very much and all the best!
