It seems this thread is going along the path of neural networks, I can recomend some reading material about them which explains the dynamics of the reality and paralels within programes to create a sponge although i think the neural network may complicate things while creating a sponge because. But give it a go. Mean while i may create an agent based sponge script if i have time.

Here is a attempt to transform the links into geometry.
There is still a problem which I am trying to solve... (in fact the links are .. unlinked lol)

Thumbs up

It is not like neuron, but very organic!
I just can't wait to try your script and play around, sorry.

OK I am going to look at what it is necessary to finish.
Currently the code is "open".

Hi you all:

I found this webpage might be useful for neuron modeling or sponge growth.

wish this help^_^

Hehe, funny you should mention this. Prusinkiewicz has gotten some great looking results, but his models aren't based on science. I've been working on some much more biologically accurate models...and I'm doing my research in Max, which means that there will be a plugin coming out sometime

Oh that would be nice!
What do you mean biological accurate? You can model neurite outgrowth accroding to their enviroment and synapse transmisstion strength?

Synapses, no...that was last summer!

I cannot simply describe the ways in which trees grow, it is very complicated, and it is also largely a mystery to science...but I can incorporate the most modern theories and evidence, as well as many detailed father has written books on the subject

Hi all.

Hammer b chen: I finally removed the some bug which prevented me to give you before my script.
This version does work but the function to create real geometry is not terminated.
The nodes are not connected. It is visible closely.
But you can already play with it.

I advice not to create geometry with more than 200 links at the start because the geometry creation is slow. (and especially the attachement)

wip version:

if you want that script to work in max 8 replace the line:

local chamferResult=polyOp.chamferVerts obj vertsFlag chamferValue
local chamferResult=obj.editablePoly.chamferVertices chamferValue

great script

Thanks Tunac
I have just updated the zip file.

Do we have to replace all " obj" by "" for max 8 ?
