Voronoi 2D Malfunction?

Hello everyone,

It seems that my Voronoi node is causing problems as in the picture. Some of the cell clusters are not sharing a common tip point. Instead, they missed by a little and failed the later welding process. Can anyone help shed some light on how this happened? Thanks a lot!

Question_1

This is one way of using Extrude Point instead of using Delaunay Mesh.
And I think this is not due to the Voronoi malfunction(?), but the mesh joining and welding problem.

Hi Kim.

Thanks for introducing the Extrude Point solution. However, the problem persists soon as SmoothNakedEdge(from 0 to 1).

I can find misplaced vertices in the baked Voronoi cells after deleting all the mesh operations.

Get the mesh edit plug-in and weld the mesh by tolerance with its weld component before smoothing it.

Thanks for your attention Michael,

I don’t know if MeshEdit has been included under the Mesh tab, I installed it and no standalone tab was there.

Is this the Weld by tolerance node you were referring to? I can’t get it to work for some reasons. There was a bubble says that the component is not working.

Thanks for your help again.

I’ve encountered this bug before. It has to do with Catmull-Clark Subdiv from Weaverbird which fails at times. No idea why!

The problem is indeed with Voronoi, zoom into the Voronoi result in those areas:

Which gives you conditions like the following that seem to confuse all the mesh algorithms, welding and smoothing:

Providing XY Plane and changing seed value of Pop2D will help you resolve the Voronoiproblem.
