Hi
I have a question about sorting lists. This model has been sorted according to distances to one single point, but this being a symmetrical design with 4 different parts that have been joined, although the numbers rise from the bottom, I would like the numbers to be more connected, so that on the sleeves, front and back, the numbers remain relatively connected with each other. The base mesh is 4 different meshes combined and needs to stay connected, but I wonder if there is a way to use the split meshes as perhaps a reference to sort it so that the numbers become more connected depending on their location?

Or if there is another way to simply make the list more connected, like distance to multiple points?

Thanks for your reply.
The base mesh is in the beginning of the definition, the base which is plugged into kangoroo is the 4 meshes which are joined, if that is what you mean by base mesh.

The whole piece have been connected with lines that tangents the circles, and I have placed rings that cut through, all the rings will be the same size, so there is probably not a need to sort them, the circles with numbers and ring holes have also been orientated to the c-plane. I just need the overall numbers of the circles to go together so that I can take for exemple 1- 20 and assemble them quite efficiently, which will be more difficult if for example 24 is connected with 62.
Can that be solved with Breadth First Search?

The logic is that you build a mesh topology from points using a Voronoi diagram, assumming that a mesh can be flatenned to a disc without cutting. In my opinion your fabrication model needs a topology diagram.

Steps:

Flatten your mesh to 2D (in this case it is boundary first flattening, use other disc flatenning (i.e. laplace smoothing) if you use mac)

Hi, I just wonder if I could ask one more question.

A lot of the algorithm is in the end plugged into one sort node, the sort node determines the order of the orientation of the circles to the C-plane, that it goes from 0 - the end and also the rotation of the text, etc, the keys are just based on distance to a point, is it possible to plug in values of the vornoi numbers into the keys, so that the rest of the algorithm does the same thing only with the new numbers? Or would it need to be redone from scratch with the new numbers?
