It's an attempt at a bubble bias. Where both ends are condensed and the middle is stretched thin. In the example I used boxes and adjust there placement on the z axis. Check it out. I do believe there is a more efficient way of doing this. I'm still in the process of messing with it but feel free to chyme in and mess with it. I'm hoping to implement a way where the bias control for both ends could be independent from one another. Code: ``` totalHeight = (units.decodevalue "100cm") count = 21.0 sz = (units.decodevalue "3cm") clearlistener() endBias = .4 --range -1.0 1.0 biasStrength = 1.0 --range 1.0 100.0 fn fnCreateBoxes = ( fn biasCalc f bias:0.0 power:1 = ( if bias < 0 then 1 - (pow (1 - f) (1 - power*bias)) else (pow f (1 + power*bias)) ) for k = 0.0 to count-1 do ( middle = (count-1)/2 bubble = if k == middle then 0.0 else if k > middle then (endBias*-1) else (endBias) format "% - %\n" k bubble f = k/(count-1) h = biasCalc f bias:bubble power:biasStrength obj = box width:sz height:sz length:sz pos:[0,0,(totalHeight*h)] print obj.pos.z ) ) delete objects fnCreateBoxes()``` __________________ ____________ ___ __ _ John A.
